While it may be difficult to find a complete Ixd program online (in
an accredited univ), you may be able to find individual courses
that you could sign up for. For Eg. Michigan State University has a great
Design Research class available online.

calling all wiki design gnomes

Hi all,

I'm cleaning up a 5-year-old wiki for a client and have been running into the usual tensions between imposing order (through better design and IA) and maintainability.

Has anyone worked on a project like this recently? I've done similar work on intranets and internal apps for corporate clients, but this is significantly more collaborative and non-hierarchical.
