Contented online courses in web content: what's new?

Contented dog.


How does the new CONTENTED Diploma in Web Content differ from our previous online courses in web content writing? Many of our customers have been asking this.

Here's the answer.

We have packaged our new online courses as a Diploma in Web Content. The Diploma offers 3 additional courses:

  • Writing for Search Engines
  • Strategic Blogging
  • Editing in Action. Previously this was a passive resource. Now it's a complete course with its own test. It includes the objective QA tests and checklists which are so popular with web content authors.

The other 7 course topics are the same as before.

The Diploma is in a new format. It's not a series of web pages, rather it uses Articulate elearning software. Each course still has an online test.

The elearning system that delivers the Diploma is also new. Now managers can track the progress of their staff and sign up more staff with the use of an access code.

We also sell single courses now as well. That's handy if you don't want to buy all 10 courses together as a Diploma.

Want more information about the new CONTENTED Diploma in Web Content? You'll find plenty on the CONTENTED web site. Just start from the home page and explore.

Thanks for the idea, Pam. I am sure that if anyone did all 10 courses individually we would issue them with a Diploma in Web Content. However, the administration for individual courses is comparatively high, and for that reason, so is the price. You can do a diploma for NZ$300, but individual courses are $100 each. And of course you have three months to finish 10 courses, so you can take your own sweet time.

That’s tragic, Jo! But you’ll go to heaven, for sure.

I’m late but I’m still interested in the diploma program. I also finished a web writing course here and always on the hunt for more. Definitely watching this space.

We promise to repeat this offer, or do something else randomly rewarding, at unpredictable intervals.

You squeaked in and will also get a free course! We wanted to give 2 people from our newsletter list priority. That’s you and Virginia. Yes, that’s 6, not 5 free courses. We’re just so generous, aren’t we?

Thank you Cath! The situation you describe sure is exasperating. Better luck with the next round, and keep in touch.

Offering single classes is a good idea. In order to receive a diploma do you have to take all classes as a bundle? Why not offer a diploma as students progress in their courses of study especially if they follow the itinerary for the diploma program.

Note to self: set hourly alarm to check e-mail as you never know what amazing offer could be in your inbox! I’m off to get a copy of ‘Write me a web page Elsie’ for the ultimate ‘content me’ experience.

Good to see, though I’m surprised so many people are checking e-mail at nearly midnight!

I recommend the “Write me a Web Page Elsie” book to anyone writing for the web- it’s a great resource.

Hi Rachel,
I’ve been reading your occasional news / advice for years now, and always appreciate it. I recently recommended your bulk course to my (soon to be ex) fed gov employer, because as a web editor there, it would make my work easier if those drafting the content were skilled up. I didn’t ever get a response – but that didn’t surprise me, because the skills that you teach are not well recognised or appreciated. (Partly why I’m leaving that place.)

So just a word of thanks, heartfelt though rather belated!
Cath

I may have missed out on the freebie but I’m impressed to see you’ve continued to develop your online courses. I found the original series very helpful and hope to do the diploma course.
