Course Description

As a technology professional, you are a master of complexity. But the more complex your ideas and information are, the simpler and clearer your writing must be. This course will enable you to communicate more clearly and easily with supervisors, clients, and colleagues. You’ll discover communication strengths you didn’t know you had and learn how to build on them to become a more capable, confident writer.

Prerequisite

There is no prerequisite for this course. It functions as a stand-alone course.

Who Should Attend

Engineers, business analysts, software engineers, network administrators, project managers, and anyone who uses writing to share technical information.

What You Will Learn

After completing the course, you’ll be able to:

  • Analyze your audience using three different methods
  • Bridge the knowledge gap between you and non-expert readers
  • Create a straightforward document structure for a brief document
  • Describe technology so that readers can visualize it

How the Course Works

  • Each week, you’ll complete a variety of interactive online learning activities, including a brief writing activity. You’ll receive personalized feedback on two of those activities.
