Course Outline

Module 1

Identify & Understand the Audience:

In module 1 you will learn how to understand and identify the audience you tend to target. Before planning any document it is very important to understand the target audience. A document created without considering the target audience will generate no good results. This is the key to creating result generating emails, marketing campaigns, and good reports, guides, instructions, proposals and much more.

Module 2

Active VS Passive Voice

Learn the art of making your document precise, shorter, clear and modern. Learn how to use active and passive voice efficiently. Understand when passive voice is considered better than active voice.

Module 3

Preparing Instructions/Steps:

In this Module we will learn how to list and bullet. Most of us think that bulleting and listing are alternatives but both of these styles are used for different purposes. Knowing the purpose would help you make your document stand out. Listing and bulleting are used almost in all types of writing but they are vital for guides, manuals, procedures, instructions, processes, agendas and reports.

Module 4

Prepare Precise Documentation:

We all agree and no one has the time today to read long and lengthy documents, or even if someone reads a lengthy document chances are that he/she might miss out an important point. Having said that, this module will enable you to communicate your message or ideas optimally using fewer words. You’d learn the art of trimming down the sentences without altering their meaning.

Module 5

Self Editing & Revising Text:

In this module we will learn to make the document even better. There is always room for improvement and this is what needs to be considered once you have created a draft for the document. This module will help you learn the techniques to review and edit the documents on your own without the help of a third party.

Module 6

All in One:

In this module you will get to practice everything you have learnt above, starting from understanding the audience, practicing active and passive voice, trimming down the length of sentences to make the document precise, exercising bulleting, listing and self editing.
