No matter how wonderful the contributions of designers and developers, the foundation of any website is words. An effective site is well organised and well written, with content and metadata that is attractive to both search engines and real people.
An effective editor can make the difference between an engaging site and a frustrating one.
In this full-day workshop, you'll discover:
• how the web differs from print (and how it's just the same)
• how to write effective headings and hyperlinks
• when to use lists and tables
• how to help search engines to find a site's content
• what metadata is and why it matters
• how you can help people with disabilities to find and use a site.
Numbers are limited to 20, so please register as soon as possible. See below for the registration form.
Sunday 11 August, 1.30-4.30. Susan Rintoul will present a workshop on Practical editing. Stay tuned for more details.
