This course has been a great investment – in a compressed amount of time I have learnt a repertoire of new writing habits ready to test out, and weeded out many ineffective ones! I found it very valuable. I have already recommended this course to my colleagues.
I was recommended this by people within a ministry I work at. In my arrogance I thought I knew how to write. This has made me reflect on and question the purpose, structure and effectiveness of everything I've done. My digital content team will certainly find me much less of a pain in the butt now! :)
The course opened up new avenues for me, and it enabled my skillset to grow. It was easy to follow, and appropriately tested.
I followed the Web Content Diploma course, which gave me a high-quality introduction to the main challenges that everyone writing for the Web has to face. I particularly appreciated the very neat explanations, easy to follow, as well as the many examples provided. I would recommend the course both to beginners, willing to approach the matter, and experts, for an invaluable review.
I loved the format and was reassured to see that all this common sense was not only the result of my personal thinking, but that actual experts believe in it too. I also learned a lot and feel very well equipped for any web content I will have to work on now. I feel ''knowledge rich''.
