Often times, images can enhance a persons comprehension of subject or content when words alone are not descriptive enough. Our current wiki is heavily text based alone and provides little in the way of supporting image documentation. While this is sufficient for many technical readers, it is not for visual learners. It is imperative that we make every effort to accommodate both types of learning styles so that any person, regardless of their learning style, can easily and effectively navigate and comprehend the wiki documentation.
While adding supporting images to the wiki will increase the overall size of the wiki, the benefits will outweigh the increase in documentation size in many ways. First, it will enhance the ability for visual learners and non-technical audiences to more easily comprehend the supporting documentation associated with our products. Second, when supporting documentation is thorough and easy to comprehend in conjunction with an easy to use and friendly product, a larger target audience is achieved. Third, if our audience finds our documentation thorough and easy to understand there is less pressure on our tech support group to answer more basic questions that should be able to be resolved in our wiki documentation. Many people are afraid to ask for help from tech support staff for fear of feeling inferior or inexperienced so they rely heavily on easy to understand and navigate wiki pages with supporting images to provide good and informative documentation.
