Card sorting as an effective user-testing methodology has been explored and discussed by some of our industry's top names, including Jakob Nielson and Donna Spencer. Now U1Group, a Melbourne-based digital experience consultancy, have contributed their voice to the conversation.
They've released a course on Udemy titled Developing an Information Architecture with Card Sorting — and they're offering Optimal Workshop's readers a discount to complete it. How cool is that?!
What the course will teach you
The course is a comprehensive and easy-to-digest introduction to using card sorting to define and refine an information architecture. Here's what's in it (in their words):
The course includes 10 detailed video lectures and quality professional resources – created and used by our own expert consultants at U1 Group. You’ll gain the ability to run your own card sort, and validate any proposed IA that comes your way. The course is perfect for information architects, web designers and developers, usability professionals and marketing/communications staff.
The course also includes sections on how to use OptimalSort to create card sorts and run remote tests. So if you have an Optimal Workshop account and run card sorts using OptimalSort, you'll appreciate that this course integrates the tool into the process. And we're pretty stoked they've included us — thanks guys!
