Date: Thursday 27 August, 14-18h00
Place: HDC, Geneva
Cost: 40 CHF
Facilitator: Eric Reiss

In just three hours, Eric will show you how to create findable, scannable, skim-able, and readable on-line content. This is the stuff that creates understanding, builds trust, and increases conversion rates. Topics include:

– why writing for the web is different (basic observations and hard facts)
– navigation (labels, not graphics)
– shared-reference building (getting folks on the same mental page)
– descriptions (core content)
– contextual navigation (locally relevant links)
– convenience text (alt texts, pop-ups, FAQs, and instructions)
– information architecture (from a content-provider point-of-view)
– metadata (machine-readable keywords, titles, and descriptions).
