Block III - Define the solution
Learn how to define the design solution by defining a correct information architecture, the basics of interaction design, usability testing and content strategy.
06. Information Architecture
Learn information architecture, from the most basic concepts through all its systems and components and apply research techniques to validate it.
Information Architecture Basics ->
Learn the basics of information architecture, learning how people search for information and the search patterns we use.
Information Architecture Components ->
Learn the different components of information architecture, whether they are organisational, labelling, navigation or search systems.
Information Architecture Research ->
Like any other area of design, we must validate our information architecture by testing with users using card sortings or tree testings.
07. Interaction Design
My favourite part! Learn interaction design, its key elements to translate your design decisions into something more mature and defined, as well as learning human factors and validation through usability testing.
Interaction Basics ->
Learn the basics of interaction, usability and the components that make up the layers of interaction. Complement this knowledge with the basics of emotional design and anthropometry.
Heuristic Evaluation ->
Learn how to perform a heuristic evaluation to find all the potential improvements in your interaction models.
Human Factors & Cognitive Processes ->
Human factors and cognitive processes are the discipline you need to understand how we relate, think, memorise..., and improve your interaction models based on the physiology and psychology of our users.
Usability Testing ->
Learning how to perform usability testing with users will give you what you need to validate your artefacts and apply real feedback.
08. Content Strategy
You need to consistently populate the content of your interaction model and learn how to guide the user based on the task. Learning the basics of UX Writing will help you throughout your career.
Content Strategy & UX Writing Basics ->
A good content strategy ensures the population of quality resource across not only our artefact, but the entire ecosystem.
