Technical writing is not just about writing user guides. Web pages, wikis, and mobile applications are replacing manuals and online help. The basic principles of print and Web writing may be the same, but you need to engage your readers as you create content that is easy to understand, well organized, and speaks directly to your audience.

In this webinar you will learn the basic principles of plain language and writing for the Web, including:

  • Understanding what your audience needs
  • Writing as conversation
  • Defining your voice
  • Writing clearly and concisely
  • Using space effectively

Whether you’re looking to optimize your current Web content or creating your first wiki, learn how you can transition your skills to writing for the Web.
