Layers of London


 New website launch training, all volunteers and potential volunteers invited

The website is being re-launched in June with extra map overlays, more user-friendly features, a new aesthetic and taking into account all of the comments, suggestions and feedback from users so far! Come and learn how the website has changed.

To celebrate this and also to show you how the new website works, we are inviting all volunteers, contributors and anyone who would like to learn more about the website to attend our website re-launch training on the 24th May 2.30- 4.30pm in the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House. Please RSVP as numbers are limited due to capacity and so we can provide tea, coffee and light refreshments.

We will also be conducting some more user testing of the website during this session.

Individuals will complete a series of short tasks over a 30 minute period with our website development team to help further the usability and test our new website features! Please email us on the day if you are willing to help us for half an hour. You don't have to attend the launch if you would be happy to just pop-in and help us test the website. We would be extremely grateful! The times for the user testing are:
