DOCUMENTATION


What is documentation?
Documentation is any communicable material that is used to describe, explain or instruct regarding some attributes of an object, system or procedure, such as its parts, assembly, installation, maintenance and use.

Where can I get access to documentation?
All documentation for students and staff is stored in Google Docs.

How do I get access to documentation?
If you have a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) account, then you can access the documentation via a shared drive.


Why is paper documentation or manuals not provided?
Procedures, hardware, and software application are always changing at the school. Basically a paper document quickly gets out of date. Therefore paper documentation is only provided on a limited basis. Online documentation has several advantages - easy to make a change, changes are documented in a change history log, only need to make a change on a single shared file, multimedia (video) can be embedded into the documentation, easy to search, and saves money by not using paper.
