Description

When coming to design or website or product, we usually think first and foremost about the visual representation of the information, but doing that without addressing the content sorting and structure, can leave our users confused and lost while using our product. In this course, UX Information Architecture, you’ll learn to build the Information Architecture for your product. First, you’ll explore how to conduct the research for Information Architecture. Next, you’ll discover how to run Card sorting sessions, analyse the collected data and how to validate it by applying reverse card sorting and user testing. Finally, you’ll learn how to structure your product layout and design your product wireframes by applying its best practices. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of running the process of collecting data for the information Architecture and translating it into wireframes needed to generating the most useful and practical product for your users, so they can accomplish the purpose of using your product.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Netta Tzin, and welcome to my course, UX Information Architecture. I'm a product manager and currently the Head of Product at My‑Sphera. Designing a product is an exciting and creative process, which we are eager to start when having the concept of our product in mind. However, when jumping straight into designing the product without having a profound understanding of the strategy behind our navigation, taxonomy, and product elements, a cool and creative design just won't be enough to attract our main users. This course is an introduction to information architecture, which will help us reach our optimized product layout in terms of its functionality. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understand the fundamentals of information architecture and its core values to the product layout, get familiar with card sorting and how to perform it online and offline, learn how to analyze the card sorting testing results and validate them with reverse sorting, how to apply the card analysis when constructing the product's abstract structure, what are the best practices for generating a product wireframe from the product abstract structure, and introduction to usability testing and how to measure it. By the end of this course, you will know how to portray the information architecture for the product, how to run a card sorting session, analyze and validate it in order to construct the product structure that will be translated to the product wireframe, and how to validate and improve them in order to set the product's prototype ready for development. Before beginning this course, you should get familiar with the fundamentals of UX designer roles. I hope you will join me on this course to learn the fundamentals of information architecture by studying the optimized experience for users with our product throughout the UX Information Architecture course at Pluralsight.
