Search and finding is a common user activity. But do you know the relevant
factors to design search interfaces? This course reviews the theory and
practices of search interface design.
Modern user interfaces often contain a search or find components so the
user can search for content in the context of the application.

While there are common practices, what actually works best in these
situations? What kinds of search tasks are the users actually trying to
accomplish when they do a search? In this course, we’ll review the search
and findability issues that users confront in the course of their tasks,
and ways in which information can be found. We’ll also discuss the ways in
which users seek information in social settings. You will learn several key
design principles for creating your own search interfaces, as well as
coming to understand what is driving people to search.
