Technical Editing and Report Writing

In the Technical Editing and Report Writing class, you'll learn how to write and edit technical reports and procedures for a variety of industries. You'll consider the target audiences for these documents and how you can craft a message with those users in mind. You will also learn about and create a process flow to help guide users through your chosen process.

Drafting and editing are crucial steps in any writing project, and you will practice editing procedural documents in this course. We will cover key writing principles you can apply to any technical writing project. You will also consider why technical procedures are important for multiple businesses and produce a technical procedure document that you can add to your technical writing portfolio.
