The Transcription Basics course will provide an overview of fundamental skills that are necessary for creating a high-quality transcript. This course will offer skill-building exercises in research techniques, understanding accents and dialects, listening in context, using Word to your advantage, formatting, and proofreading.
Your grade in this course is weighted on the final scores you receive on the instructor-graded assignments.
The five instructor-graded assignments are at the end of this course and the instructor returns assignments the following business day. Please manage your time wisely.
