Writing for the Web

We read differently online than in print.  Web usability guru, Jakob Nielsen, conducted a study that showed a 58% improvement in web reader behaviour based just on how copy gets written.

This is a highly practical workshop for organizations who write their own web copy. Hands-on exercises allow you the opportunity work directly on your own web copy with one-on-one guidance from Sharon Habib the instructor.

Examples of websites that do a good job are given, and one-to-one guidance is provided.

  • Factors influencing web readability and the user experience
