User Experience (UX) - Information Architecture   


  • Analyze completed user research from three key sources: card sort data, qualitative interviews, usability tests  
  • Organize collected information into a usable taxonomy 
  • Create a complex navigation system as a sitemap 
  • Develop a labeling and organization system that reflects a website’s taxonomy 
  • Audit an existing information system to expand its taxonomy 
  • Generate a data model for a website’s search engine 

Information Architecture is the underlying premise for how content is organized in software and websites, to give it meaning for the end-user. With roots in library science and the core skill for understanding how to build an effective website navigation, this course will take you through the methods of organizing information, teaching you how to build a taxonomy appropriate to a given website or piece of software. This course explores tenets of taxonomy, semantics, findability, decision theory and context.


  • User Experience Research is recommended but not required.
