In the 21st century, the way we communicate has forever changed and now moves faster than the speed of life. In addition, good writing takes many forms, but in the world of social media, the need for better communication plays an important role in how ideas are shared.

Better COMMUNICATION in Social Media™ is a 6-week practical online writing course that gives learners a private community where they learn to think in different ways about the world surrounding them, as well as beyond their usual scope and reach.

Featuring WORLD & LIFE TOPICS™, learners use a customized comment and reply writing system in order to effectively share their ideas in a private and secure forum. From the beginning, they receive feedback from highly-trained evaluation & assessment specialists, in addition to points and scores for what they successfully produce. With an emphasis on consistent production, accuracy, and interaction – learners improve their written communication skills by taking this course while enjoying the process and journey of lifelong learning.
