Here is your opportunity to learn the design, information architecture, and usability insights used by today’s most successful web sites. UIE's monthly Virtual Seminars will give you the chance to hear the latest perspectives in the world of design from the field's premier experts.
Instead of traveling to a training course, you and your colleagues can hear the latest insights on the most important design topics right from your office for only $129. You'll watch the presentation on your PC screen. We encourage attendees to gather as many people from their organization to watch together.
Are you facing an aggressive deadline for your web site or product launch? Do you see the need for user research but lack the time to implement it? Itís hard enough creating usable designs when there is ample time and plenty of resources, but what do you do when that's just not an option for your design team?
One of the most common reasons designs fail users is because the design team didn't have the time or resources to focus on user research. To help designers and usability professionals deliver usable sites and applications despite the obstacles, we turned to Larry Constantine, author of the landmark book, Software for Use, to share his proven techniques on how to conduct design and usability efforts quickly and efficiently, even when there is barely time to do anything at all.
In this 90-minute seminar, Larry will share a wide range of field-proven tricks and techniques for conquering design and usability problems while in crunch mode. You will learn:
This seminar is for any designer, developer, usability professional, or project manager who wants to learn how to improve their design team's productivity with simple and proven techniques.
