Creator’s Guide to Writing Readable Courses
Writing an effective course is deceptively difficult. How you say something is as important as what you’re saying.
Writing an effective course is deceptively difficult. You might think that all you need is an understanding of the subject and an outline of the important topics. But that’s not really enough. When it comes to courses, how you say something is as important as what you’re saying.

Ultimately, you need to choose words your learner can understand so they can focus on the material, not the writing.
