By: April Tupper, “Writing for the Electronic Medium” WTC Student Assignment November 8, 2011 (Updated Version to Incorporate Web writing). A previous version titled “BTT Newsletter: Your Guide to Technical Communications” was submitted June 2011 as an assignment for my WTC course”Technical Reporting”.
The original version covers: Writing Style, Document Design, the Use of Visuals, as well as Ethical Standards and Copyright issues in the workplace and was primarily designed with print documents in mind however much of it could also be applied to online documents. It was created in Word and can be accessed by the following link: https://skydrive.live.com/embedicon.aspx/.Public?cid=2a7c37e01bbe015d&sc=documents .
