Writing for E-Learning

In this course, students will learn to create clear, concise and engaging E-Learning content. We’ll begin the course with a quick review of grammar and punctuation, then move into best practices for writing for E-Learning, such as writing scannable content, assessing reading level and creating writing style guides. In the second half of the course, we’ll focus on types of writing specific to E-Learning. Students will enhance their writing skills as they create scenarios, write audio scripts, and develop assessment items.

This course is fully asynchronous. Course activities include weekly readings, writing assignments, and peer feedback.

Topics Include

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Write clear, concise, scannable content.
  • Adapt written materials to meet the needs of learners.
  • Draft content specific to E-Learning such as learner instructions, scripts, scenarios and assessment items.
