The web usability training is usually run by Ismail Ismail.

Web usability training philosophy

Our web usability training follows one basic principle:

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime

Chinese proverb

Put simply, we don't want to make your website usable - we want you to make your website usable. The web usability training lasts for one full day, during which time you'll complete a series of exercises designed for you to discover the answers by yourself and then put into practice what you've learnt.

By the end of the day, you'll know what makes a usable website and as a result of our hands-on web usability training, you'll have:

  • The foundations of a usability action plan for your website
  • Ownership of what you've learnt
  • The ability to apply what you've learnt again and again in the future

The cost per participant is £395 + VAT, including refreshments, a delicious lunch and all-you-can-eat ice cream. Vegetarian lunch is also available.

Participants also receive a free handbook containing all the course tutorials.

Demand for our courses is high so do be sure to book early to avoid disappointment. All courses take place from 10.00am to 5.00pm at our training centre in Aldgate, London.

We also offer private in-house web usability training, which can be especially useful if there are 3 or more of you looking to attend.
