Architecting Video Site Experiences

A UX researcher and a UX designer from Esri will be speaking about their experience building a usable taxonomy structure for their new video site and the importance of user research in their design process. In this session, the team will talk about the risks that they would have encountered had user research not been conducted and the essential logic and concepts that are needed to build a reliable information architecture for a video site.

Presented by Kyle Jones and Leslie Lung from Esri

Defining and understanding community: Using IA and research to co-create World IA Association

Communities provide a sense of connection, place, and identity. How do people seek professional communities? What role do these communities play in their career and lives? Volunteers with the World Information Architecture Association share their findings from conversations with people in the community. We focus on the story of how they found their “home” community. We learn about the decision they made when they leave a professional group. We invite the audience to help us think about opportunities to move the IA community forward.

Presented by Andrew Shum, Miguel Castillo, and Grace Lau from DIA Design Guild
