"Usable Web Design" Workshop
21st-22nd Apr 05, Singapore
This is an opportunity for you to have a deeper understanding of the user-centred design process so that you are able to maximize your web designs.
We will also demonstrate how to gather user requirements more effectively. We will do this by using ground-breaking techniques such as contextual inquiries and how to convert requirements into design specifications while writing tenders, project plans, etc. We will also provide in-depth, conceptual understanding of various web design elements including site structure, navigation, graphics, text, animation as well as system-user dialogues; so that participants can design and evaluate these elements objectively.
Through case studies, tutorials and a hands-on project assignment, participants have a chance to practically apply all that they have learnt so that they can effectively blend creativity and functionality in their next web projects. Learn through videos, real-life examples, and exercises. The workshop is uniquely practical in its visual and hands-on teaching approach.
"A very practical workshop."
