Assignment 1: Discussion Assignment
The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this module based on the course competencies covered.
For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by due date assigned.

What can be done to improve these written communication skills? Technology can play a critical role in that. Do you agree? How?

In what situations is an e-mail appropriate? In what situations are memos and letters appropriate? When would you make conference calls? For a business letter, what are some ways in which the “tone” can be misunderstood? What can you do to avoid this possibility of miscommunication when writing a letter?
