About this Wiki

Wikis are websites that anyone can add, delete and generally build upon in anyway that they want. For this class, our focus is information architecture which can encompass anything related to user experience (UX) design. Wikis are a great way for all of us to pool our our combined knowledge and resources to learn and benefit from each other. In todays knowledge society, designers need to engage in collaborative practices in order to innovate and thrive in the competitive market place. This wiki is an extension of the studio environment where we can share ideas, respond to each others work and leverage class contributions to help further our design work.
