We Are All Connected: The Path from Architecture to Information Architecture

We Are All Connected: The Path from Architecture to Information Architecture
Quote: “Architecture is commonly defined as “the art or science of building, specifically: the art or practice of designing and building structures and especially habitable ones…Richard Saul Wurman defined information architect as “the individual who organizes the patterns…creates the structure…the science of the organization of information.” In a broader sense, IA is about creating a set of blueprints for information-related projects and products that builders-designers and programmers-can construct.”
Comment: Elearning design is still evolving. Methodologies and efficiencies have not fully materialized yet. Looking at the processes of other (in some cases more established) fields can assist elearning designers. The principles of information architecture offer many insights into organizing information for end users.
