Web sites need well-written and easy-to-read content even more than they need cutting-edge web technology. Learn what usability research says about how people read content on web pages, and what you can do to make your web pages easier to read. This event is designed as a training session that will consist of a brief lecture, along with group discussions and hands-on exercises.

Key topics in this three-hour session include:

  • The Needs of Skilled and Unskilled Readers
  • Clarity and Conciseness
  • How to Phrase Headings and Links
  • How to Organize Information More Effectively

Presenters:

  • Kristen Albright - IT Specialist 2, NYS ITS, Health and Human Services Cluster
