Online Card Sorting is an ingenious way to discover how people think your content should be organized.
- Create, run and analyze a card sort online
- For anyone who cares about user experience (UX)
- Use the insights to design or refine an information architecture
Getting started with OptimalSort is really easy. Compared with traditional card sorting methods (using index cards and lots of data entry), you’ll save many hours in both preparation and analysis time.
1. Input your cards
Your “cards” are the content items from your website or intranet that you’d like to study. They’ll ask people to sort these cards into groups to help you understand your users’ mental models.
2. Configure your survey
Configure any options and questions you’d like to ask before or after the card sort. These questions allow you to segment your results by demographic, psychographic or department, for example.
