Learn adaptive content modelling

Future-proof your content for multichannel and omnichannel while improving user experience.

course bannerSingle-source, multichannel content – also known as COPE (create once, publish everywhere) – is the holy grail of digital publishing. To get there, brands have to move away from generic content and learn how to adapt content for more personalised, context-relevant delivery via applications, online, social media, wearable devices and more.

This two-day workshop, run in conjunction with our training partner Urbina Consulting, is designed for digital communicators who want to understand, use and scale adaptive content that will handle multi and even omnichannel needs.

This is one of the few workshop sessions available that can also future-proof attendees for advanced paradigms, such as wearable devices, multi-screen interactions, embedded user assistance, augmented reality and more.

What you’ll learn

In this practical session, you’ll learn a proven methodology of analysing and structuring your content so that you can create omnichannel, personalisation and automation-ready content – free from the restrictions of the browser.

You’ll walk away with:

  • a solid sense of what structured, semantic content actually is and its relationship to adaptive content, multichannel and UX
  • a grounding in the key concepts required to approach semantic content modelling
  • the knowledge that your content is already more structured than you might realise
  • templates and an analysis process you can use immediately after you get back to work.
