Mind Mapping for Effective Content Management [A8]


In 2007 the University of St Andrews Web Team (of two) was faced with the daunting task of managing the migration of 4,000+ web pages from 35 individual websites into one new Web site within a content management system. Having explored various methods we settled on using mind maps to successfully the complete the task within 4 months.
In this workshop we will begin with an overview of mind mapping before sharing what we did and looking at how you can use this tool to efficiently organise and manage your own content.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the session attendees should have an understanding of what mind-mapping is and how it can be used to:

  1. Optimise the information architecture of Web sites
  2. Manage Web site content
