Info sheets and training workshops

  • Designed and authored a series of one page guides on using the publishing features of Microsoft Office, to help staff publish their scientific documents.
  • In many cases staff were in remote locations and unable to attend training workshops in person, so these guides provided valuable assistance.
  • Planned and delivered numerous workshops for staff in person, demonstrating publishing features and giving advice on using Microsoft Office apps.

Instructional videos

Wrote, recorded and edited a series of short videos providing guidance to Bureau of Meteorology staff on the publishing capabilities of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.

  • Research into the difficulties faced by users in performing common tasks as they publish their work.
  • Each video presented a quick solution to a task that often caused difficulty to staff, e.g. applying templates to a Word document, or fixing broken styling and formatting. 
  • Used the excellent features of the Camtasia video editing suite to rapidly produce material on a variety of subject areas.
  • These videos proved highly successful as an alternative to generic written documentation, as they showed realistic examples using Bureau branding and templates.
