Reminder: Navigation & Menu Design Webinar 5 July

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

 

Reminder: Navigation & Menu Design Webinar on 5 July at 16:30 London Time

 

The third of our series of Guerrilla UCD webinars is this Thursday (5 July). Whether you and your team are building web sites, intranets or apps the basic principles of navigation and menu design are the same. And while formal information architecture is appropriate for larger projects, in many cases all that's needed to improve user experience is a better understanding of navigation fundamentals.

 

The webinar covers:

  • Designing for users' goals (the scent of information)

  • Terminology and layout of menus

  • Mega-menus and faceted search

  • Addressing accessibility for disabled users

  • Menu design for mobile devices

If you cannot attend the live session, a downloadable recording will be available by 9 July. Slides will uploaded by the 4th. For more information or to register, visit bit.ly/gucd-3. Log into the 'My Webinars' page once you've registered to have easy access to all of the downloadable resources.

 

The cost of this session is 66 / £55 / $88 with a 5-for-the-price-of-4 discount available. See www.guerrillaucd.com for full details.

 

The fourth in the series, Designing for Search Engine Optimization and Accessibility is scheduled for 19 Jul. See bit.ly/gucd-4.

Reminder: Designing for SEO & Accessibility Webinar on 19 July

Reminder: Designing for SEO & Accessibility Webinar on 19 July at 16:30 London Time

 

I've seen a couple of your Webinar presentations recently, both of which have been very useful and have fed directly into the work my team is doing at the moment.
- George Harris, IT Director, Paperstone

 

Search engine optimization is vital to success whether you're involved in e-commerce or your organization's intranet. While SEO and accessibility may seem like odd bedfellows, they have much more in common than most people realize. (Both rely on making pages make sense to automated systems.) In this webinar you will learn the essentials of SEO and accessibility, how they are related, and the important differences you need to be aware of.

 

Join the live webinar this coming Thursday or download the recording if you can't make it. It covers:

  • The basics of search engine optimization and accessibility for disabled people

  • Brief introduction to the legal requirements of web site accessibility

  • The importance of good page structure and markup

  • SEO and accessibility tools

  • Completing the rest of the accessibility puzzle

Human Error, Messages and Feedback Webinar on 2 August

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

 

Human Error, Messages and Feedback Webinar on 2 August at 16:30 London Time

 

The Webinars are useful because they give great value and are convenient in bite size chunks. I can pass the most relevant information onto the team without everyone having to take a day off to go to a class presentation…
- George Harris, IT Director, Paperstone

 

We spend a lot of time designing web sites and systems for the 'sunny day' scenario when everything goes as planned. But in reality it is how well we deal with errors and exceptions that make the difference between failure and a good user experience.

 

In our fifth Guerrilla UCD webinar you'll learn some of the basic reasons people make mistakes and how we can design to avoid them, or at least minimize their impact. We'll also look at what makes a good error message and why these should always be a last resort.

 

Join the live webinar next Thursday (2 August) or download the recording if you can't make it. It covers:

·         Brief introduction to human error

·         Preventing errors

·         Planning for errors

·         Feedback and flow

·         Attracting attention

·         Error messages
