Information architecture (IA) is an often-overlooked area of website and app design, but without a well-planned information hierarchy, designers risk creating applications and sites that are confusing or make content virtually inaccessible. In this dynamic, hands-on, session, emphasis is placed on building an effective information architecture created from multiple sources of information. These sources include user research, scenarios, features, and user priorities.
What you’ll learn in this IA training course
In this session, participants build an information architecture for a class project to create an experience up to the point of testing it’s information hierarchy. The goal of this exercise is to help participants realize the importance of user research, persona, and feature building, that ultimately result in a successful hierarchy of information that meets their business objectives.
Overview of an information architecture
This session is for anyone involved in the user experience process, from researcher or analysts to visual designers and stakeholders.
