Learning how to organise, describe and present the information in your website or app is one of the fundamental skills that makes up UX design. Information architecture is the glue that holds complex digital products together and enables users to navigate and make sense of them.
This introductory course teaches you the basics of designing solid information architecture (IA) for websites, intranets, search and web applications. You will learn what and how to research to identify the elements of an effective IA. We'll cover how to analyse and synthesise your research results. Most importantly you'll learn the basics of designing IA and how to create sitemaps, wireframes and other artefacts to communicate that design.
Anyone who deals with online or digital products and needs to understand the basic principles and application of best practice IA design.
