- Hello, my name is Neil Perlin. More and more information comes to us on computers and mobile devices. How that information gets into online form in the first place, specifically using a tool called Flare, is the subject of this course. Flare lets us focus on creating our material while taking care of most of the technical details behind the scenes. Flare lets us create information in text and graphic form, in small chunks called topics. Flare lets us add navigation, that helps our users find information in these topics quickly and easily.
Flare also lets us control the formatting of that content to make it attractive and usable. Knowing Flare will be a strong addition to your professional skills. This course will get you started.
