For our #WeekendWatch, we have our first Lynda.come video lesson, Crafting a Strong Message (4m16s) from the Writing Email course.
This video outlines three key strategies that will help you write effective email messages. With a great deal of communication in the workplace taking place in email, learning how these three strategies work will make you a more effective employee.
In addition to watching today’s video, skim the titles of the other videos for others that you can watch to improve your email messages. After watching the video, you can leave a comment on the strategies it recommends, your experience with email in the workplace, or another video lesson that you recommend.
How Lynda.com Videos Work
Lynda.com courses are comprised of a series of video lessons. Typically, I will ask you to watch one or two lessons to learn more about a particular concept or skill.
The site is designed so that you can easily watch an entire course, with the individual video lessons autoplaying one right after the other. It certainly won’t hurt you to watch more than I am recommending, but realize that I do not typically ask you to watch an entire course.
Note: This video has closed captioning, so it does not need a transcript.
