Media File: Memo Writing
This resource is enhanced by an Acrobat PDF file. Download the free Acrobat Reader
The Memo Writing vidcasts model revising a poorly written memo into a more effectively written memo. The vidcasts are specifically geared towards writing memos in an engineering environment; however, the instructions and details within the vidcast are appropriate for the majority of memo writing. For use outside of an engineering environment, we suggest using the vidcasts as suggested examples rather than as strict rules.
We suggest that all users print out the Sample Memo and Revision to use for reference while you view the vidcasts. The PDF contains excerpts from a memo that correspond with the vidcasts. You can download the PDF by clicking the link in the Media Box above.
