  • How to Think Systematically About Tone for Your Content
    How to Think Systematically About Tone for Your Content Pierre Gagnier, ADP Recorded: Dec 12 2017 57 mins
    Are you thinking about incorporating tone into your content strategy? If so, you've probably seen how confusing this topic can be.

    We know, because we are human beings, that language can misfire. Tone is where understanding and emotion come together – and sometimes that’s messy.

    Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Pierre Gagnier, Content Strategist at ADP Innovation Lab, for this free, one-hour webinar. Pierre will show you how a team of researchers at ADP were able to tame some of the trickiness of tone and measure its impact. What they learned will help you to make sense of tone and change it from a source of risk into a tool for creating effective content.

    Attendees will learn about 1) a simple, workable set of definitions that you can use to promote shared understanding among stakeholders of what tone is; 2) A framework for identifying and applying tone attributes so that you can create a foundation for consistent practice, and 3) Some typical factors that will help you to see how tone can go awry and will help you create your own risk factors.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTER

    Pierre Gagnier is a content strategist at ADP's Innovation Lab in New York. He works extensively with user experience researchers to help ADP web and mobile product teams align their content strategies consistently with users' realities.

  • Copywriting to Content Design: Creating Content That Delights
    Copywriting to Content Design: Creating Content That Delights Padma Gillen, Scroll UK Recorded: Dec 12 2017 57 mins
    In 2013, GOV UK, the government services website for the United Kingdom, won the prestigious D&AD Black Pencil for its contribution to moving content forward as a design discipline. Since then GOV UK has been name-checked and modeled around the world as *the* way to do public sector content. And yet, aside from those who are really “in the know,” the practice of content design is still little known outside of government content circles. And inside of government, many people talk about it, but not many know how to do it well.

    Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Padma Gillen, of Scroll UK, for this free, one-hour webinar. Formerly Head of Content Design for the UK's Government Digital Service, Padma has been at the heart of this emerging discipline since its earliest days. He now teaches others how to do it, and helps organizations rebuild their entire content function around the principles of user needs, designing with data and agile content production.

    In this webinar, Padma will introduce you to these principles and explain how to incorporate them into your approach. Attendees will learn how to place the needs of users at the heart of your content strategy, apply agile methods to content production, and learn to understand the governance models needed to improve your content significantly.
  • Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Modeling Microcontent Structure for DITA
    Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Modeling Microcontent Structure for DITA Steve Manning, Precision Content Recorded: Dec 12 2017 58 mins
    We’ve all heard about the benefits of content modeling and structured content for technical information. We’ve implemented DITA or other topic-based strategies to break content into smaller blocks to manage and publish, but topics are not small enough.

    But the addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and AI means we must change the way we structure content. We are moving from a broadcast style of communication – publish and hope for the best – to a more conversational style of communication. More question and answer. This imposes requirements on the content models you need to create if you want to talk to the Bots. We must be more granular in our models. We need to implement Microcontent.

    Join Val Swisher, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and her special guest, Steve Manning of Precision Content, for this webinar. Steve will discuss how new technology will change the way we approach content and the topic-based approach to deliver what you need for the new technology challenges. Steve will work through a different approach to the content that focuses you more on reader outcomes how that affects your content models. Attendees will learn how deep into their content then need to model to get the most from chatbots, voice-enabled systems, and ultimately AI.

    Attendees will also learn 1) Why traditional topic-based DITA is not granular enough for the future; 2) How microcontent is a better approach to future-proof your content, and 3) How to use user outcomes to drive models and granularity.

  • Smart City Scorecard Identifies Top Performers
    Smart City Scorecard Identifies Top Performers Jillian Walker, Senior Consultant, Visionary Innovation Group Recorded: Dec 11 2017 38 mins
    3 Critical Takeaways:
    · Innovation: The Smart Cities highlighted in this webinar prioritize cultivating a spirit of innovation within their communities, businesses, and government. They do this by involving citizens, businesses, and academia in the Smart City conversation; attracting innovation centers and dedicating living labs; and supporting local startups.

    · Goals & Adjectives: For Smart Cities to progress, initiatives must align with a strategy that has a clear vision and goals. All Smart Cities have three meta-goals: maintaining citizen well-being, ensuring resource and environmental sustainability, and securing a bright economic future.

    · Learning while Striving to Lead: Many cities wait to implement an initiative after its success has been proven elsewhere. Smart Cities learn from best practices, but they also take the lead in finding novel ways to address city challenges.

  • SciVal API :: What is it & how can I use it?
    SciVal API :: What is it & how can I use it? Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) and Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) Recorded: Dec 7 2017 32 mins
    The SciVal API allows you to programmatically retrieve metrics for use in your own software applications.

    Join Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) & Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) for an introduction to the new SciVal API, what it is, where it can be accessed and how it can be utilized. Joe, who built the SciVal API, will give a demonstration of how you can create a small application using the SciVal API and Scopus APIs together.

    An API stands for Application Programming Interface, and it provides a way for programs to talk to one another. The SciVal API gives access to a comprehensive basket of metrics for researchers (Scopus Author profiles) and all 8,500+ institutions available in SciVal.

    The API returns data machine-readable format that enables software, rather than humans using the scival.com platform, to use the data. Consequently, this allows developers to write programs that automatically extract metrics from SciVal periodically, and use that data in their Institutional Repository systems, websites and for richer visualizations in tools like Tableau.
