Learn how to write successful and engaging blogs with this practical online workshop from the Education Media Centre.

 

Are you thinking of starting a blog, or of writing for an existing blog site? If so, this course is for you.

 

We’ll start with the basics:

  • What makes a good blog?
  • What type of language and tone is best?
  • How can you ensure your blog suits your target audience?


We’ll also offer tips on how to set up a site and on how to make sure it gets read. The course will include a practical exercise with the opportunity for feedback – so you should leave with a draft blog on an appropriate topic.
