LESSON 04: INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE & WAY-FINDING content

The first generation of corporate Web sites consisted mainly of online brochures— a few static HTML pages with occasional online form to request more information. Since then, the Web has grown exponentially: company Web sites that were once a few static pages are now hundreds or thousands of pages in size, meriting their own budgets and staff.
