In this course you will learn:
– About the benefits of applying taxonomy strategies to your content;
– Important terms and their explanations with IT examples;
– 3 specific strategies that will save you a ton of time in creating a taxonomy: using a standard, a description, or by comparison;
But we do not stop here. How will you know if your taxonomy is a valid one? What your customers think about it and is it helpful or not?
In the course you will also learn:
– About card sorting techniques
– How to set up open and closed card sorting workshops to validate the user experience with the information architecture you have defined;
– Which tools to use to design and develop information architecture and taxonomies.
This course DOES NOT COVER:
– How to write in DITA. (This is covered in other courses of JPDocu School of Technical Writing)
– How to create DITA subject scheme maps.
– Deep details on ontologies.
– Advanced tools, metadata repositories, classification engines, or servers for storing and handling of metadata, taxonomies, or ontologies – this is a getting started course, so such tools and details are not included.
– Ontologies and building them – we consider that a student needs to get a good hold on taxonomies, get practical experience before we can start talking about ontological relations between taxonomies and taxonomy terms.
– Chatbots – although taxonomy is a prerequisite for building decent chatbots, we do not go into details about chatbots in this course.
