Introduction of the Dragon1 Help and Learn System

This document describes the Dragon1 Help and Learn System, the HTML-based system for providing user assistance for Dragon1.

Dragon1 is an online modeling, content, knowledge and presentation platform on which you can co-create and manage as individual or as team architecture solutions for transformations in the organization together with your vendors or your own clients.

On Dragon1 users are enabled to create projects, process models and architecture designs and lots more (in ArchiMate, BPMN, Togaf, UML, or your own language notation). But especially you are enabled to create visuals, interactive diagrams which you can all interconnect. How that works is explained here.

Dragon1 Help and Learn is developed to deliver online topic-based user help, such as is often provided in user manuals and lists of frequently asked questions (FAQs).

Dragon1 Help offers significant advantages over static help documents, such as Read Me files or manuals in PDF.
