When we talk about learning, a large piece that is sometimes overlooked (or is difficult to achieve) is the concept of performance support - that is, getting the right piece of information to the right person at the right time. Rather than teach someone all the information he or she needs, it's sometimes better to teach people how to get the information. Even Einstein is given credit for saying he never remembered anything he could look up in under two minutes.
Enter a web site called ErrorKey. Basically, you enter an error code or error message, hit the Search button, and you get a detailed description of the error. As I've said in prior posts I'm not a technical person, but I've got to think this would be a cool tool for those who are.
What's even more impressive is the list of systems for which error codes are indexed:
Give it a try. You may be impressed enough (or be faced with enough error codes) that ErrorKey makes it to your bookmarks!
