The InfoDev Academy is an online learning and collaboration community for people who create complex, technical, instructional, and high-value content.
Inspire Action Facilitate Success Invest in Yourself Make More Money Demonstrate Your Value Advance Your Career

The modern world revolves around information – information presented as various forms of content, such as courses, manuals, spreadsheets, websites, videos, presentations, proposals, user interfaces, and more.

It takes specialized skills to create effective content – not everyone can do it. At the same time, the ability to create effective content is critical in all areas of modern business, regardless of field, genre, or medium. The InfoDev Academy is all about helping you develop this specialized expertise and championing your role so you can get resources, authority, recognition, and reward that you deserve.

We focus on high-value, complex, and instructional content – content based on verifiable and actionable information that helps people accomplish a task. Using our approach, you can create content that is not only relevant, timely, accurate, complete, and clear, but it is also compelling, engaging, and beautiful.

Transformation

Beautiful

Usable

We Help You Develop Content That Is Both Usable and Beautiful

Because research shows that what is usable is beautiful!
Research shows that there is a clear and consistent correlation between the degree of perceived usability and the degree of perceived aesthetic quality – and that these factors, in turn, affect the degree of perceived trust, credibility, and overall quality.1
