This course helps participants discover what’s working and what could be improved in any piece of writing. If writing is a challenge, Fundamentals of Writing helps participants improve their abilities and confidence. If they feel comfortable writing, this course hones their skills even further! Participants learn specific strategies to improve their ideas, organization, voice, words, sentences, and correctness.

You can provide as much or as little oversight as you wish. Track participants' scores on pre- and post-assessments, review their quizzes and activities, or drill down to individual responses. You can also brand this course with your own title, organization name, and logo, which appear on participant materials and the final certification for 1.5 CEUs.
