Migrating a 20th Century CBT Program to HDITA and the Learning and Training Specializations

Created in 1994, our Canadian Natural Gas Installation Code CBT (http://www.gastraining.com/page.aspx?xml=page_products_b149cbt&language=en) was mainly hosted in an Access Database. By the end of the century, an interactive tutorial module was added to the program but, apart from a couple of content updates and the fact that we’re no longer shipping CD-ROMs, the package hasn’t changed much since.

While updating the medias for the upcoming 2020 edition presents a couple of challenges, the textual content is currently in the process of being migrated to HDITA for the tutorials and the full DITA L&T specializations for the Q&A modules.

You’re invited to join me for an overview of the conversion/migration process, some lightweight DITA first impressions and discussing our custom SCORM plugin development.
