Information Architecture Course for Application and Web Design

Information Architecture Course for Application and Web Design

Information Architecture Course for Application and Web Design Overview

 A well-planned information architecture (IA) for websites and apps creates the foundation for a functional site or app. Discover how to create a useful information hierarchy to help users engage with your app or website. Information architecture 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.
