Software is often defined by what makes it different, but in many cases, the same UX and design problems appear over and over again; a pattern, across many applications. Rather than come up with a brand new solution for every problem - a solution that could require a tutorial to educate users - it's often best to turn to familiar solutions that a user will immediately recognize. These solutions are called design patterns, and when it comes to UX, these patterns can solve problems in the user interface and they can also help influence the behavior of users.

In this age of information, it’s not always easy to know how content should be structured - everyone has a different perspective. In this course, you’ll learn about information architecture: what it is, and how it relates to web design and user experience. We’ll learn about the fundamentals of IA components like navigation, labeling, and content organization, as well as techniques to test and evaluate existing website structure. By the end, you’ll know how to organize website content and provide a clear, logical experience for any user.
