Complex Applications and Websites: Day 2

More patterns, plus tactics for information architecture, visualizations, content, and user testing

Day 2 of this course explores new techniques for understanding and mapping expert users’ concept models, and it presents additional useful interaction patterns. Alternative ways to communicate designs are suggested in lieu of traditional specifications (which don’t work for complex user interfaces).

This course also covers how to deal with special challenges that complex systems bring to information architecture, navigation, usability testing, content and terminology, and visual design.
