Online workshops

We know between the uncertainty of the world right now and budget constraints, training in person is often not possible. This page offers you flexible, cost–effective, and safe alternatives.

Our approach to online

Our online offerings are the best of what we’ve learned over decades of teaching in-person courses, redesigned for online learning.

Stay tuned for new self-paced online courses

We are currently developing a do-at-your-own-pace Plain Language Fundamentals online course. It will cover fundamental plain-language principles (and will align with the ISO standard that’s coming out soon).

We are also developing other short modules—Mastering Active and Passive Voice, Shaping the Right Tone, and Effective PowerPoint Presentations. Some of these online courses are also customizable using your own documents.
