About

This Effective Communication Capstone Project offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder is part of the Effective Communication - Writing, Design, and Presentation Specialization. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

In the Effective Communication Capstone Project offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder learners apply the lessons of Business Writing, Graphic Design, and Successful Presentation to create a portfolio of work that represents their mastery of writing, design, and speaking and that expresses their personal brand. The portfolio includes three individual elements—a written memo, a slide deck, and a presentation—integrated around a single topic. 

We provide the elements for a basic capstone, but we also invite our learners to create their own project if they so choose. This self-designed "Challenge Capstone" allows learners to engage meaningfully in their world by choosing a project relevant to their current job or by volunteering to write, design, and speak for a social organization of their choice.

By successfully undertaking the Capstone, learners will accomplish three main goals:

  • They will hone their writing, design, and speaking skills and build a portfolio for a job search and/or professional application
  • They will shape these skills into a unique brand identity; and, if they choose
  • They will undertake a transformative effect in the world around them. 
  • Ultimately, the importance of Capstone portfolio is greater than the sum of its individual parts. Its true goal lies in each student’s personal transformation and expression of their best selves. We invite you to unleash your skills and we can't wait to see the results!
