About this training module

Information architecture is the practice of deciding how to organize, structure, and label content for a website, application, or other project to support usability and findability of the information it contains. Good information architecture helps users focus on their tasks, understand where they are on a platform, what they’ve found, what else they might be able to find, and what to expect. The outputs of information architecture include things like site maps, taxonomies, navigation menus, and metadata. This module, based on decades of experience with arranging and managing web content in various ways to serve different audience needs, provides an overview of what information architecture is and dives into seven steps to organize web content.
