Search usability: filters and facets: Tony Russell-Rose
Venue: The Fountains Learning Centre, York St John University YO31 7EX
Date: Wednesday, 20 November, 2013 - 09:30 - 16:30

"Really useful and informative" - "Excellent"

** Please note that this course is limited to 16 places and early
booking is highly recommended **

Course Outline: 
Faceted search offers tremendous potential for transforming the search
experience. It provides a flexible framework that can satisfy a wide
variety of user needs, from simple fact retrieval to complex exploratory
search. It is now the dominant interaction paradigm for most eCommerce
sites and is being increasingly applied to a wide range of enterprise
search applications.

However, with this power comes a challenge: what kinds of categorisation
schemes are effective and how should we use them to support search and
navigation? Above all, how can we deliver search applications that
address a growing range of user needs without compromising usability?

This course will provide an introduction to the basic principles of
search usability with a focus on the development of faceted navigation
schemes that deliver both search effectiveness and user satisfaction.
Participants will:

    Explore the fundamental concepts of Human-Centred Design for
information search and discovery
    Learn how to differentiate between various types of search
behaviour: known-item, exploratory, lookup, learning, investigation,
etc.
    Understand the dimensions of search usability and how to apply them
to different user contexts
    Study the basic principles of faceted classification and how to use
them to deliver effective search and navigation experiences
    The course will include both presentations and group work to enable
delegates to analyse, evaluate and improve the effectiveness of search
applications within their own organisation. 

Who should attend: 
Intranet/web managers, information architects, search specialists,
developers and managers of search projects, or anyone who either has
implemented or is planning to implement a search application and wants
to maximise the usability and effectiveness of their investment.
