Learning Objectives:

At the end of class, students will be able to:


  1. Explain the 3 questions that navigation must answer at all times (Where am I? Where have I been? Where do I go from here?)
  2. Apply the 3 questions to critique existing interfaces
  3. Define “Information Architecture” (IA)
  4. Recognize and create IAs using different organization logics (task-based, audience-based, topical, life-event, etc.)
  5. Solve IA problems using card sorting
