Faceted navigation has become very popular in the last decade. It’s seen as way to improve the findability of information on many sites, particularly those with large collections of products or documents. The design of real-world faceted navigation systems, however, proves to be more intricate than people first assume, and designers must be aware of many details.

This workshop covers principles of faceted classification and shows you how to use facets in web design. Many examples of faceted navigation will be presented and discussed. A clear, structured framework for understanding the individual components is presented to help you understand all the decisions involved. The topics are brought to life through several hands-on exercises.

Session Takeaways

  • How to plan for the implementation of facets
  • Learn about interface design - the layout, display, and interaction with facets. We’ll examine real-world examples, and you’ll apply what you’ve learned in hands-on exercises
  • Be exposed to advanced topics in faceted navigation design, such as selecting multiple values, grouping, and more.
