Documentation Documentation is any piece of information or instructions written to help a user use a computer system, a hardware device or particular software. There are two types of documentations, technical documentation and user documentation. User Documentation: User documentation is a documentation that shows you how to use particular software or a computer system. It is mainly used by beginners because it shows a step by step method for using particular software. It may also include screenshots to make it easier for users to understand. Technical Documentation: Technical Documentation is less detailed than user documentation. It is mainly used by experts. Technical Documentation is used to look for particular details that are otherwise not so obvious to the user e.g. how a system or a program works.

Training Staff How would I teach my staff? To teach my staff about the computer system I will first look at the number of staff I have and then I will decide what method to use to teach them.

If there are between four to seven members then I will call a lecturer who will come twice a week to give a lecture about the computer system for two hours.
