Information Architecture

Information Architecture focuses on helping users to find their way around e-learning content quickly and easily. We focus on taking your existing information, your user's needs, and the goals of the organization in constructing a learning portal. Our emphasis on searching, navigation, and indexing and labelling learning objects helps end-users find their information more efficiently and provides the architecture to facilitate management of your curriculum.

Integrating Metadata helps to create a standard, uniform way of labelling learning objects so they can be discovered, referenced and used. It provides an abstract mechanism to associate high-level information about an object so that external systems can access it. Information about learning objects helps in making instructional decisions by:

  • Helping users to define characteristics
  • Helping users discover through searching
  • Enabling a common method of reference

We work with our clients to integrate a metadata model. The IMS metadata schema, for instance, currently has 86 elements and 19 core elements that are organized into nine different categories, which are:

  • General: Information on Learning Objects as a Whole
  • Lifecycle: History and Current State of the Resource
  • Meta-metadata: Features of the Description vs. the Resource
  • Technical: Technical Features of the Learning Object
  • Educational: Educational Features of the Learning Object
  • Rights: Conditions of Use of the Learning Resource
  • Relation: The Resource in Relation to Other Objects
  • Annotation: Comments on the Educational Use
