Much of what we do relates to teaching people how to use software based applications. Yes, it would be good if those applications were so simple that they were intuitive and people didn’t need teaching how to use them, but thats often not the case. The applications themselves are often tailored to a specific client and have a logo in either the top right-hand or top left-hand side.
Apart from taking up valuable real-estate showing a logo, there is another issue that I have with them from the training point of view. We seem to spend an inordinate amount of time over the years discussing how we can swap them out so content produced for one logo can be reused with another logo. I’m an advocate of Adobe Photoshop which allows me to record an action and then play back that action rapidly, over and over again. So, if I open a series of images I can swap out the logo (which appears in the same place all the time) very quickly.
This only works though if you have an application that creates your training content for you by taking screenshots. I’d recommend something like TT-Knowledge Force which is part of the Performance Suite for doing this. If you have captured all your screenshots using this tool, then you can access them all in one swoop from your local workspace using the key combination CTRL+ALT+W and then pop them into Photoshop to run your action on them.
