Teachers require great communication skills (listening, speaking, writing, and reading) to transmit knowledge effectively and motivate students to learn. Online teachers are no different. Though online teachers do not need expertise in all four communication areas, strong writing skills enables them to share their knowledge successfully.
eLearning courses require a great deal of writing for on-screen text, audio scripts, learning objectives, assessments, interactivity, feedback, case studies, stories, etc. An author may be doing creative and persuasive writing in one course, and technical writing in another. Whatever your course topic, eLearning authors need to create interesting, inspiring content that delivers concepts clearly to the audience.
