As the amount of content increases and the delivery interfaces continues to expand, siloed content teams are no longer sustainable. In this course, you’ll complete an outline of a content operations plan for your organization.
Participants will explore how to make sense of your information spaces. Using tried and true techniques and activities, you’ll practice how to make information easy to find, navigate, and understand.
With digital content published across more channels than ever before, how can you make yours easy to find, use, and share? Is your content ready for the next wave of content platforms and devices?
Enter the content model--a representation of all the types and relationships of the content your organization creates and publishes. It creates a shared understanding of the important concepts your audience cares about most. This framework for structured content to reuse and remix your valuable content assets prepares you to meet the needs of today and the opportunities of tomorrow.
In this workshop, we will learn how to create a content model and use the structure to create and curate content for maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
This workshop will help you create a framework to:
Ship and iterate products faster
Make content management more efficient
Allow for easier iteration of interface design and future growth
Maximize content investment through omni-channel publishing and content reuse
End the expensive cycle of complete website redesigns
Construct a content model that demonstrates how content types can be used throughout an organization
Develop a plan to use the model to create representations in multiple interfaces
Use collaboration and facilitation techniques to lead the modeling process
Identify benefits of content models to current organization or clients
