UIE Virtual Seminar Presentation
Length: 90 Minutes
"The sessions were great. We used them to build synergy with the team in areas we want to learn more about, and in some cases, common language to use when discussing things like faceted search." - Caroline Z.
When folksonomies showed up almost 10 years ago, they promised to make information on our sites easier to use. After all, if users apply their own tags to every piece of content, everything will be easier to find, right? Maybe yes, maybe no.
Not so coincidentally, our favorite taxonomy and category expert, Stephanie Lemieux, has spent the last few years integrating folksonomies into several large-scale web sites. In this brand-new 90-minute seminar, she’ll share her experiences, showing us what works and what to avoid, when you integrate folksonomies into your taxonomy and category design process.
Implementing tagging won’t replace your site’s taxonomy. Instead, a well-integrated folksonomy can create a synergy that makes a site’s vast content more findable. Stephanie will walk you through several proven implementation strategies for public-facing web sites, behind-the-firewall enterprise systems, and intranets.
In this information-packed seminar, Stephanie will show you how to:
We’re excited to hear Stephanie describe several hybrid approaches to taxonomy and folksonomy. You'll see how to leverage the benefits of consistency and user-driven terminology, while avoiding the evils of rigidity and inaccuracy. Blend tagging with your categories in the right way and you’re on your way to findability goodness. Don't miss this seminar.
Learn how to integrate a folksonomy really well and make your vast information more findable.
Hopefully, you saw Stephanie co-present with Seth Earley in 2009 when they rocked their New Ways to Think About Taxonomy Virtual Seminar. Stephanie and Seth did an amazing job showing us the different roles that taxonomies in our organizations. (If you missed it, you can still watch the recording.)
As soon as we met her, we fell in love with Stephanie’s easy-going style and smart approach to designing site navigation. We’ve love the work she’s done at Earley & Associates, where she helps her clients choose and implement the perfect blend of tagging and taxonomies.
Integrating folksonomies into large-scale web sites is the type of challenge Stephanie Lemieux lives for. We’re impressed with the depth and insight she brings to her evaulations of taxonomy management and virtual collaboration tools. That's why we're thrilled she's delivering this new seminar on making folksonomies work for your site.
Get ready to be on your way to findability goodness! Reserve your spot now.
"The fact that we could access the archived seminar after the live class was great. My team finds a great deal of value from these seminars. All in all, a great offering." - Elena G.
