If your content is a mess and users can’t find what they're looking for, your website isn't usable. The key to overcome or avoid this problem is a robust information architecture (IA). Help users accomplish their goals efficiently with the proper process. In this Master Class with UX Researcher and Inclusive Designer Stéphanie Walter, you'll learn the step-by-step process to organize content and extract your full page IA and your overview components.

Learn how to save time by making the right decisions early with low fidelity wireframes instead of detailed mockups.

This process comes with a toolkit you can apply to any type of website, from simple sites to complex enterprise products. You'll be able to apply those concepts in your daily work with the help of Stéphanie's trusty Miro board.

In this Master Class, you’ll learn:

  • How to explore the fundamentals of an overview-detail model and understand how modular components work at different sizes.
  • How to create a content model for a detailed page.
  • How to build a content hierarchy and priority, based on user needs.
  • How to build detailed low fidelity wireframes of pages and responsive modular components out of that content priority.

Go from complexity to clarity with a guided process you can make your own!

Even if you can't attend live, register to gain access to a recording that you can watch at any time after the broadcast.

Error messages are essential to create a successful user experience (UX). They guide users, offer instant feedback, and prevent mishaps. Friendly and informative, they build trust and empower users while ensuring inclusivity and satisfaction. However, many error messages fall short, being too generic or technical, and lead to frustration rather than assistance.

How can we design better error messages UX? How do we display errors in data tables? Where do we place them?

In this one-hour Master Class webinar with Vitaly Friedman, a UX Lead working with the European Parliament and the Founder of Smashing Magazine, you'll delve into error message UX details, covering form layout, live validation, disabled buttons, compatibility, and crafting effective error messages. You'll also learn techniques to improve error recovery rates and proactively minimize errors.

You’ll learn:

  • How to display error messages in complex apps and forms.
  • How to design better validation to reduce friction and frustration.
  • Where to place error messages in a layout for tables, filters and forms.
  • How to prevent mistakes and slips with better form design.

Join this Master Class webinar to learn techniques to design better error messages, improve validation, optimize error message placement and prevent mistakes.

Even if you can't attend live, register to gain access to a recording that you can watch at any time after the broadcast.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why aren’t the Master Class webinars free of cost for members?

While the Master Class webinars aren’t free, they are open to both members and non-members of Interaction Design Foundation. While non-members pay $50 per webinar, members pay only $5. We charge this nominal fee to cover a few costs associated with producing the webinars, including:

  • The cost of using Zoom as our webinar partner. Zoom is one of the most reliable webinar hosting platforms, but it’s also one of the most expensive. We chose quality over affordability to bring you a better viewing experience, and the nominal fee we charge helps us cover these costs, without making the webinars expensive.

  • Along with the cost of Zoom, we also cover webinar costs associated with servers, payment gateways and code maintenance. In fact, 40 cents off every dollar in a transaction goes towards just the payment gateway alone!

Charging this small fee goes a long way in helping us cover these costs and enables us to continue to bring you high-quality content with the best experts.

Will the Master Class webinar be recorded?
Absolutely! Every Master Class webinar is recorded by default, and if you register, you will automatically receive the link to the recording a few hours after the broadcast ends.
What happens if I can't attend a Master Class webinar live?
No problem at all—as long as you make sure to register for it, you’ll receive a recording link a few hours after the broadcast ends. This way, you can catch up on everything that happens in the live session. But, do be sure to register, as the recording is only sent to registered attendees!
I’m a member, but when I try to register for the Master Class webinar, I’m being charged the non-member price. How can I get the discounted price for members?
Please double-check the email address you are using to register for the webinar. You must be logged into your IxDF account in order to avail the special member price.

If you use another email address, our system will not recognize you as a member. As long as you’re using the correct email address as a member, you will receive the special member price.
I just signed up for a Master Class webinar—what's next?
Once you register, you’ll receive an email from Zoom, our webinar partner. This email contains the link you’ll need to join the Master Class webinar during the broadcast.

This email is sent from noreply@zoom.us so if you can’t locate it in your inbox, please check your Spam folder. If you still cannot locate this email, please reach out to mads.soegaard@interaction-design.org and we'll help you out!
I signed up for a Master Class webinar which aired recently, but I cannot find the recording in my email inbox. What can I do?
The email with the recording is sent automatically to all registrants. However, because it contains links, it might get blocked by your spam filters.

In case you have not received it, please search your Spam for an email from mads.soegaard@interaction-design.org received on the date of the webinar in question. If you still cannot locate it, please send an email to this very same email address and we will help you!
I missed registering for some of the Master Class webinars hosted in previous months. How can I get access to them now?
Some of our past Master Classes are available on-demand at https://www.interaction-design.org/master-classes We’re constantly working to make recent Master Classes available on demand, so you can keep checking this page for new additions!
I’m a member, but I cannot see all the Master Classes I purchased on my profile. How can I find the ones that are missing?
Many of the past Master Classes have been edited and uploaded to our platform so that our members can view them conveniently in one place.

After each Master Class broadcast, our video editors painstakingly edit, improve and enhance the quality of these recordings to give you a better experience—but this process takes time, and that’s why there’s sometimes a delay in making them available within your profile.

Until recent Master Class recordings appear in your profile, you can always playback any of the Master Classes you’ve purchased using the Zoom recording links you received after the broadcast. Can’t find these recording links? Then please email mads.soegaard@interaction-design.org for assistance.
