Gamifying Writing Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Do you manage a team of technical authors and editors? Are you looking for ideas to help improve writing and editing skills, establish better consistency, and create fun challenges for your team?
This session introduces the idea of gamification, which is turning a generic activity into a game. Gamification offers great advantages for a tech pubs manager, including:
• Solving some of the most common writing problems, such as inconsistency, sloppy editing, and fluffy writing.
• Fostering creativity and helping teams explore alternate solutions to content problems.
• Making the work environment more fun and more intellectually rewarding.

Additional rates apply for this session.

Let's talk about writing, editing, UX, L10N, and more. I've been in TC since 1980 so I'm ready to swap stories from the trenches!
