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.

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.
