Virtual Seminars

We work with two great partners to bring you our authors' webcasts: UIE and O'Reilly.

The Next Step Series, produced by User Interface Engineering, features Rosenfeld Media authors covering critical user experience topics thoughtfully and practically—just like they do in their Rosenfeld Media books. All with the great format and quality production values you've come to expect from UIE: 90 minute-long live seminars, and recordings for future use.

O'Reilly also produces excellent hour-long seminars featuring Rosenfeld Media authors—with a different twist to meet the needs of the technical audience that O'Reilly serves.

Also available: 60-minute recordings of our Future Practice webinars, created in collaboration with our friends at Smart Experience.
