Mini-Quiz: Using RoboHelp to Develop a Simple Web-Based Tutorial

by Ron Kurtus (revised 4 May 2003)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What tools can be used to develop web-based online help?

By international treaty, only RoboHelp can be used

Any Windows help application, provided it can compile the help in uncompressed HTML files.

Microsoft Word or a similar word processor

2. What is a major difference between online help and a tutorial?

People use the index in help more than they would in a tutorial

Tutorials always use multimedia, while that is not available in help

People only use help when needed, but that is not true with tutorials

3. Why was the Java applet selected in compiling the WebHelp instead of DHTML?

Java code cannot be compromised by hackers

Concern over browser compatibility

DHTML means "Don't use HTML"

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a champion in technical writing and e-learning. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
