Course Description

This course teaches you how to write technical documents and how to write using XML. It's like learning two skills for the price of one! And both skills are in high demand. In this course, you'll learn a systematic writing process. You'll learn how to write and revise technical reports and manuals (two key technical writing formats). And you'll get the chance to practice by completing four hands-on assignments. In the first assignment, you'll learn how to write clearly and concisely. You'll practice these techniques by writing a resume and a letter. In assignments two and three, you'll create your first technical document, develop and conduct a document usability test, and revise your document based on the test results. In these two projects, we try to simulate a typical development environment by having you work in project teams. In the last assignment, you'll get the chance to write a formal technical report. The course takes you through the entire writing process, step-by-step!
