These technical definition and technical description samples came from a larger group assignment about wearable/mobile technologies and their application to our chosen field of study. My field being technical communication, I chose to describe a software concept (Online Collaborative Writing Tools) and defined a specific tool (Google Docs). This assignment allowed me to hone my skills in researching scholarly sources, writing letters of transmittal, and proposals. My focuses when crafting the technical definition and description were writing for a non-technical audience, using plain language, and adhering to genre guidelines.
Additionally, I honed my collaborative writing skills during this project. Specifically, I learned how to maintain a unified voice and consistent style throughout the document.technicaldefinitiondescription
