This course provides you with practical skills that you can apply immediately to your own digital content. We send you away with a list of “To dos” to focus on after your training, so you can put into practice what you have learned; and we follow-up with you afterwards to see how you are getting on. We are always available if you have any queries at all, so you just need to let us know.

Very useful. Got me thinking a lot more about different types of articles and also the differences between print and online.
