Designing online courses often involves turning a jumble of information into an engaging, thoughtful learning journey. A key device for crafting this journey is the use of effective writing techniques. ✨

Writing Techniques That Will Improve Your Course Creation

Cassandra Naji teaches you 4 actionable writing techniques that will increase learner engagement, information retention, and course completion.

From a storytelling structure based on Aristotle, through a writing trick used by the US Military, to problem-solving exercises used by McKinsey management consultants, you'll learn actionable frameworks to structure impactful learning content. 

You'll leave the course with an understanding of how to leverage dramatic tension to help learners remember facts, how to structure courses to reduce cognitive load, and how to help learners have fun while they learn.

If you dread writing course introductions, find it difficult to work with subject matter experts, or struggle to brighten up dry subjects, this course is for you.

Through a series of insights and actionable exercises, together with the feedback you'll receive from peers, you will leave this course with a new perspective and improved course creation skills that you can implement right away, and of course, a completion certificate.

Hello! I’m Cassie 😎

For the last year, I’ve been Director of L&D at Animalz content marketing agency. There, I help some of the world’s smartest business writers create compelling, revenue-generating content. I’m the first (and only!) person focused on L&D on the Animalz team and am responsible for creating the L&D department from the ground up.I’m fascinated by how the psychology of learning can and should be reflected in product design, and love sharing ideas on how to ‘productise’ the knowledge acquisition process.
