  • Use this and the next slide to make sure they explain the difference between the 3 types of models
  • See the animations to understand the flow of ideas; Ask me if you don’t remember/understand.
  • Overall, they do a great job of using regular language
  • Ask if they know what “renal” means. For people who don’t understand this word, how strong is this link’s information scent?How could they increase this link’s information scent?FUNNY: Note the page URL – the website designer herself used the everyday word in her file architecture! Remind them it’s important to use words on link names that make sense to their target audience. You can call something a “feline enhancement device”, but customers call it a “cat toy.” So it’s important to talk to the users, do research, to understand their language. Card sorting is a type of research that helps with both mental models/site organization and finding names for the items in the navigation menu that are suggested by users and make sense to them.
