Effective Email for the Technical Professional

Course Outline

This course is a derivative work adapted from an article entitled A Beginner's Guide to Effective Email (Revision 2.0 May 2001) placed in the public domain by Kaitlin Duck Sherwood. Admiration and gratitude are given to Ms. Sherwood wholeheartedly. Among other modifications and enhancements, the original document's general subject matter has been replaced with technical subject matter similar to what would be encountered by today's professional.

This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
