As the Academies grew, now including English, French and Spanish options, we kept our commitment to be like plain language itself.
We moved to Moodle to help make learning easier and better. To join a course you need to:

3. choose and register for your courses.
You will have access the day the course starts.
If you have any questions or issues, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Choose from our three Core courses on Basics, Audiences, and Writing and Editing.
Or, select an Advanced course suited to your current or upcoming needs. Topics include creating e-content, legal editing, technical editing, health literacy, design, feedback testing, science, and strategic planning, and projects. More courses are coming.
We are so excited about our new platform, we just want everyone else to share the experience.

Plain Language Academy instructors take their skills to the PLAIN Board
The PlainLanguageAcademy.com (PLA) is proud to have two of its instructors join the Plain Language Association International’s Board. Nicole Watkins Campbell, Watkins Campbell Communications, is their new Treasurer. Romina Marazzato Sparano, Language Compass , joins as a Board Member.
“I am excited about working with the PLAIN board to provide a place where plain language practitioners and educators can share ideas and broaden the use of plain language,”said Nicole, who teaches Editing for Plainer Legal Writing for the Academy.
“As a Board member, I am ready to help wherever I’m needed,” said Romina, who teaches Plain Language 2.0 and Health Literacy for the Academy. “My interests in serving the members include updating our directory with dynamic features for clients to find members and for members to share with each other. I’m keen to explore how PLAIN can support certification pathways for practitioners and continue the work for transparency. Also, as an educator, I’m very excited about linking members with resources to learn new skills and polish existing ones in order to bring readers information they can easily use to ‘better themselves, their communities, and their environment!’”
“We have the plain language ISO standards coming to lead us into the future, virtual conferences opening the doors to more participants, and new services being added for PLAIN members,” said Kate Harrison Whiteside, PLA founder.
“As a co-creator and former board member of PLAIN, I am looking forward to the developments Nicole, Romina and the Board introduce. Everyone will benefit from their input, including their students at the Academy.”
PLAIN is an international organization connecting clear communication practitioners and advocates from over 30 countries. Their next global conference (virtual) is in May 2021. Connect with the PLA on:
