La Jolla, CA, USA October 17, 2013 – The University of Central Florida (UCF) is joining forces with MadCap Software to empower students taking its “Writing for the Computer Industry” course with the knowledge and experience that will give them a clear competitive advantage in the workforce.

The class focuses on teaching the technical use of MadCap Flare as well as broader concepts, such as topic-based authoring, to develop professional online Help and other forms of technical documentation.

"MadCap provides a premium tool and is extremely thoughtful when it comes to education," said Dan Jones, a technical communication professor in the Department of English at the University of Central Florida. "I really appreciate how the company went above and beyond, giving me the necessary training to enrich my own knowledge of its software. This has reaffirmed my confidence in sharing best practices with my students. Since MadCap allows for many applications of Flare, I'm looking forward to seeing ways students use it."

"We are excited to partner with University of Central Florida in helping students strengthen their technical communication skills by leveraging Flare’s intuitive, state-of-the-art approach to topic-based authoring to create interactive technical documentation," said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. "Teaming with UCF, as a part of our MadCap Scholar Program, builds on our commitment to share the real-world insights of the global MadCap user community to empower students and advance their technical communication best practices to give them a competitive edge when they join the workforce."
