Focused on enhancing the usability and accessibility of your web content, this hands-on workshop will teach you how to improve your content and communicate effectively with your readers.

Writing for the Web is aimed at anyone who produces, maintains or approves content for the web, including writers, editors, administrative and secretarial staff, website managers and web-content managers.


Writing for the Web is a full day workshop that covers:

  • The importance of web content
  • Understanding how people read and interact with content on the web
  • The foundations of good content
  • Key strategies for writing web content
  • Techniques for micro-content and longer documents

A series of exercises form part of the workshop. To get the most out of the course participants need to bring sample content from their website:

  • 3-6 short to medium length pages (a few screens); do not bring home pages or pages
    whose primary purpose is navigation
  • 1-2 longer pages (policies, procedures, process documents, reports, etc.)

A printed 100+ page booklet of course notes, resources and exercises is provided.


"This is one of the few courses I have ever been on where I thought it was worth my time because I can utilise it!"

"Excellent information, excellent notes. The presenter was a large part of why the course was useful and interesting."
