    Syllabus

    Seeking information on the web is a frequent, necessary and ever-increasing activity in our daily lives and the design of optimal information spaces is essential to provide real access to information. Information Architecture (IA) for the web has traditionally had a focus on websites that are bounded and representative of an organisation or individual. This unit introduces students to IA processes and outcomes that include user research, navigation, search, taxonomies and labeling systems for websites. It also introduces students to a web of information that is increasingly fluid, unbounded and non-hierarchical, accessed by a variety of channels and devices. The unit emphasises the goal of facilitating intuitive access to information and task completion by web users.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Critically review the ecology of information on the web and describe the complexity and the variety of structure;

    2. Select and apply research methods to better understand the environment within which a website will be created or revised;

    3. Construct content hierarchies and categories, label web content for optimal discovery and design optimal navigation and search systems;

    4. Select and apply appropriate diagramming techniques to communicate an IA design to all stakeholders; and

    5. Create a logical architecture for the information on a website.
