5.4 Editing

You will inevitably find that having your content reviewed by an editor at various stages will be useful.

An editor can:

  • check the text carefully with an eye to pedagogic and structural clarity, looking at it from the perspective of a learner
  • provide a fresh eye on content you have probably read and revised multiple times
  • check that material is presented in a logical way and that the structure and journey through the course is clear and appropriate
  • question any content that they find difficult to understand
  • check for consistency of terminology, punctuation and spelling
  • provide close and detailed editing, checking spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • ensure that the content adheres to any house style guides you may have.
