About the course

Powerpoint slides from Writing for the Web course.

Writing for the Web is recommended for all staff whose work involves creating or maintaining a website of any shape or size. On this course you will learn the difference between writing for print and writing for the web, and how to turn content from printed materials into good web content.

You do not need any knowledge of Plone for this course. However, we recommend that staff with specific webcomms responsibility, especially those who are creating a new site or upgrading an existing site, should attend all three web courses: Planning Your Website (formerly Introduction to Website Development), Plone Introduction and this one.
