A distance learning course studentOur NHS department is creating a website with blogs from staff about our work. Participating in an online course to help with this was suggested to me by my line manager.

The course helped me to think about my writing style and work on improving it.

Excellent feedback from the tutor. A prompt response to submitted assignments with very useful comments. The tutor provided detailed notes using tracked changes highlighting points where I could improve.

The course covered most of the aspects of good, precise writing for the web as well as other areas I was not aware of, for example, web page accessibility.

I feel that the course gave me practice in refining my writing and, as noted in the previous responses, the feedback received was useful and provided lots of learning points.

I enjoyed the writing exercises and found them very helpful in getting the most from the course. For me personally the opportunity to produce pieces of writing and receive detailed feedback has made the course worthwhile.

By doing this course I have increased confidence when writing for the web.
