Our Writing Effective E-mails And Memos course teaches business writers how to write e-mail that has the impact the writer wants, motivates readers to respond as hoped, and accomplishes the writer's business objectives.
This course presents a highly-structured approach to writing e-mail that can be applied to all e-mail and memos and contains assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams to help ensure your learning.
Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you. The instructor will coach you in this way until you master the skills. FYI, your instructor is also available via email or phone.
