Birthday gift: brand new Diploma in Web Content

birthday content flowers.


Today is the second birthday of Contented Enterprises Limited. Alice and I have already established our corporate tradition: we have coffee and cake, we give ourselves major armfuls of flowers from Moore Wilson, I accidentally (?) take home more than my share, and Alice is nice about it.

This year at the ripe old age of two, we have plenty to celebrate. In our first year we've had over 1,000 customers in 19 different countries, and the feedback from our courses has been brilliant. The vast majority of our customers seem to be really nice people, we don't know why. Thank you, you've made our work easy! These are typical of the reports that flow into our inbox:

  • “I’ve been raving about the course.”
  • “Contented was fabulous.”
  • “You certainly walk the talk!”
  • “Specific, to-the-point, relevant.”
  • “Very practical.”
  • “A real eye opener.”
  • “It was fun to do.”
  • “ I used it straight away.”
  • “Your service is exceptional.”
  • “I absolutely loved it!”
  • “Most absorbing.”

And that was Version 1.0, a very simple, no-frills HTML-based set of courses (platform: Moodle).

Last week we sneaked our new Diploma in Web Content out to a few trial users. Phew, they loved it. (And spotted a few bugs just in time.) So now, on our birthday, we are whispering the good news to you. It's ready! And it's great.

The Diploma is more substantial and even more fun than our earlier courses. It includes 2 new courses: Writing for Search Engines and Strategic Blogging. Editing in Action is now a complete course. It's still web-based and self-paced. It takes about 10 hours to complete. Prices are irresistibly low, especially when you decide to enrol a decent-sized group. And managers can track the progress of staff.

Enough talk. Check out the brand new Diploma... and be among the first to graduate.

This sounds like just what I need – I have been putting it off for too long and but I’ll be signing up for the new diploma. I’ve missed the first five by a long way – but please feel free to Content Me!

Content Me! I’d love the opportunity for online professional development as I write for our webpage. Please let me know if this is still available. Thanks.

Great to see. Certainly the first courses changed the way I write and with great results. I would be interested in developing those skills further through Contended.

I plan to open up my very first website in about a month’s time. Was hoping to make it to the first 5 because I could really have done with the offer. Sad to see that’s not so.

It would be beneficial as I believe that writing is part of user interface design.

Just what I need to freshen up my skills. I know it will be as good as everything I’ve ever read from Contented.
