La Jolla, CA and Växjö, Sweden — February 3, 2014 — Nordic Business Institute (NBI) is joining forces with MadCap Software to provide students with the most advanced authoring and publishing solution available today. MadCap Flare is now used by thousands of companies worldwide to develop their internal and customer-facing documentation, leading Flare proficiency to become a frequently sought-out skillset. As a result, NBI has chosen MadCap Flare—the modern future-proof authoring and multi-channel publishing software that supports HTML5, print, Web, desktop and mobile publishing—to teach technical writing concepts and best practices to students in its Communications Technology program.
NBI is dedicated to preparing students for the workforce by offering more practical training than a traditional university. To provide students with the knowledge and hands-on experience they need for successful careers in technical communications, the school has developed its “Technical Communicator Training Course" course to include MadCap Flare at its core.
Our students are very grateful for the opportunity to use MadCap Flare to learn concepts, such as topic-based authoring, single sourcing and reuse of topics,” said Gillis Rudh, Technical Communicator Training Course instructor at Nordic Business Institute. “Flare is the most cost efficient, easy-to-learn XML-based program we've come across.”
“Our partnership with NBI is an excellent example of how MadCap's products are recognized and used worldwide.” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are honored to have been selected by NBI to help empower students by strengthening their knowledge of technical communications best practices and gain a competitive advantage in the workforce.”
