Companies are struggling to engage a multi-channel, multi-device, multi-lingual, global audience with timely, consistent and relevant content. You’ve heard a lot about “structured content” lately. But how does it happen? Comps, writing guidelines, and annotated wireframes can’t convey every aspect of your content needs. Models can communicate a shared understanding of the content requirements, align the design vision with editorial needs, convey them in a tech-ready form, and bring your strategy for structured content to life.
In this popular eight hour long workshop, a tech-friendly content strategist and a content-sympathetic CTO will help you learn how to create content models that will spur discussion, identify gaps, align teams, resolve issues, and ultimately design reusable content that can be used everywhere.
The workshop will start with some background on the practice of content modelling, then we’ll dive into exercises where participants will start to create their own content models. We’ll have a break in the middle of the exercises, and then talk about ways to refine these models, and how to put them to work.
- Attendees of this workshop should have a basic understanding of structured content and its benefits.
- Experience working with content and Content Management Systems will help people get the most out of this workshop.
What to Bring:
- Bring a pen.
- Also bring highlighters, if you’re into that kind of thing.
- We will provide worksheets.
- Laptop or tablet is recommended but not absolutely required.
