New & Practical Writing Skills

You complete on time weekly comment and reply writing assignments for five WORLI-TOPICS™ while focusing on production, quality, accuracy, consistency, and interaction. By learning and putting into practice new and practical writing skills – the TEN (10) STEPS – you improve your ability to write effectively in order to successfully complete the course.

  • STEP-01: CLEAR & EASY TO READ – There are many ways to write and post content on the Internet. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to write and post comments and replies using the proper WORLITOP™ format, so your comments and replies are always clear and easy to read.
  • STEP-02: SEVEN (7) PARTS OF A COMMENT – Because writing and posting a comment is similar to giving a short presentation, a comment has the same parts often found in the presentation. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to include the greeting, status question, status statement, purpose statement, main idea, conclusion, and closing when you write comments.
  • STEP-03: EIGHT (8) PARTS OF A REPLY – Because writing and posting a reply is similar to having a one-on-one discussion with someone who has given a presentation, a reply has similar parts often found in the discussion. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to include the greeting, status question, status statement, purpose statement, restatement, main idea, conclusion, and closing when you write replies.
  • STEP-04: CLEAR & EASY TO UNDERSTAND – Fundamental principles of grammar, sentence structure, word choice, and organization are often disregarded with regard to Internet content. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to use online resources so you can check and improve your ability to write and post comments and replies that are clear and easy to understand.
  • STEP-05: CAPITALIZATION – Internet content tends to be less focused on how capital letters are used. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to write and post comments and replies using ten rules of capitalization covered in the course.
  • STEP-06: PUNCTUATION – Internet content also tends to focus less on how punctuation is used. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to write and post comments and replies using ten types of punctuation covered in the course.
  • STEP-07: SPELLING – Although this may seem easy, spelling words correctly is sometimes an overlooked skill. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to check spelling with an electronic dictionary, and/or with web-based, spell-checking applications.
  • STEP-08: RELATES TO THE TOPIC – The function of the purpose statement (in addition to the restatement) is similar to the function of a topic sentence. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to write main ideas that directly relate to and support the purpose statement of a comment, and directly relate to and support the restatement of a reply.
  • STEP-09: BALANCE – This includes the relationship between the parts of a comment and reply in terms of the relative number of words. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to write comments and replies that have good balance with regard to the relating parts.
  • STEP-10: INTERESTING – Being able to write any type of interesting content is not an easy task. By taking this course, you gain knowledge of how to write interesting comments and replies by presenting new and/or different ideas that engage and encourage other learners to participate in online, written discussion.
