Information Architecture: Spring 2014

Instructor:

Andromeda Yelton

School:

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Semester:

Spring 2014

Description:

Howdy and welcome! While this course is formally “Information Architecture”, I think of it as “Help! My organization has a web site (and I might end up in charge of it)”.

In one semester, I can’t hope to make you experts in all the things you might need to know to build and manage a web site — especially since it’s always changing! However, you will know what domains you’ll need to learn more about if you find yourself running a real-world web site; the vocabulary for talking with domain experts; and where to go to learn more.
