Hey everyone, since we just talked about card sorting, 0:00 I wanted to present an activity for you to try on your own. 0:02 Basically, I'd like you to be the test user in an open card sort. 0:05 Now, let's imagine I work for Slack. 0:11 That's the chat platform that a lot of people use these days. 0:14 And just like anyone else, Slack needs a website that serves up all the relevant 0:17 information people need about their app and their company. 0:21 Well, our team at Slack has created 23 different pieces of 0:25 information that need to be on our website. 0:29 My task for you is to divide them into groups and then come up with a name for 0:32 each group so we can present them within categories on a website. 0:37 The number of groups is up to you. 0:42 Make each one as big or small as you want. 0:44 In the end, all 23 pieces should be in groups, and 0:47 those groups should have a name. 0:51 Make sense? 0:54 All right, here's what I can give you. 0:56 First, I'll give you a list of all the 23 items. 0:58 Plus, since we're not doing this activity in person, 1:02 I'm gonna cheat a little bit and give you a short description of each page. 1:05 That should answer any questions you have, 1:10 since some of the page titles might be a little vague. 1:11 Secondly, I've got a printable PDF file of all 23 items. 1:15 This way, if you want, you can print out these cards for 1:20 yourself and arrange them on a table or a desk. 1:23 So there you go, take those pieces I've given you and 1:27 do the card sort, come up with groups and names. 1:31 And in the next video we'll talk about the results. 1:34 See you then. 1:38
