This session aims to help the teacher understand the necessity and advantages of creating documents (word processing documents, slides, spreadsheets, etc.) adequately prepared to sustain easy maintenance.

This is required when we create training content that we plan to modify, update or even reuse in the future. It also facilitates the teacher to focus on developing the content instead of worrying about constantly formatting the documents.

For this session, we will use Microsoft Office, though the same knowledge is applicable to most of office suites with slightly modified procedures.


Ideally, we should provide the learners with a Word document deliberately badly crafted to work with plain text, no formatting, no headings, no real structures, but still coherent and with sensible, like an essay. Attached to this guide you can find an example of bad document.

Both introduction and methodology are valid for the whole module.
