LEARN ABOUT INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE IN 30 MINUTES

IA FOR EVERYBODY

Information architecture (IA) is the way we arrange the pieces to make sense as a whole. This is a critical part of making things, especially making things that make sense to other people.

In just 30 minutes this course will give you an expert-guided tour of the basics you need to know to start adding information architecture (IA) into your own practice. 

If you want a wide and democratized overview on what IA is, what it is used for, who it benefits and how to get better at it, this is a great place to start.
