Spring UX & UCD Training Courses in London, Brussels and Vancouver


An early-booking discount is available until May 23rd for our one-day Card Sorting for User Experience course. It covers a wide range of both paper and online tools and techniques for researching and validating information architecture with users. New this year is the inclusion of ‘reverse’ card sorting – an online tool that tests the effectiveness of menus – plus a peek at our upcoming SynCaps V3 card sorting analysis software. (Participants will be entitled to a full license for SynCaps V2, which can be applied towards the purchase of SynCaps V3 when it is released for sale. Our earliest package, SynCaps V1, is free.)

June sees the return of our general course on usable web design (called, appropriately enough, Web Design for Usability) on the 13th. Unlike many usability courses, this one focuses on design and is more than a large collection of guidelines and tips. We include a variety of tools and techniques to help participants apply usable design in their projects.

As always, there is a 3-for-2 discount across all of these courses, giving great flexibility to both individual and group attendees.

We’re running three days of courses In Brussels from the 1st to the 3rd of June:

• Agile User Experience & UCD • Dynamic User Experience: Ajax Design & Usability • Card Sorting for User Experience

Our 3-for-2 discount also applies, so you can attend all three days but pay for only two.

Two of our courses – Agile UX & UCD and Card Sorting – are featured in the tutorial programme for CHI 2011 in Vancouver. The courses programme is now on the conference web site – http://chi2011.org/program/courses.html  

Drop us a line if you need a course you don’t see on our site (see our course schedule) or would like to run one or more in-house, anywhere in the world.
