Let's Look More Closely
I have a defined problem. I need to know how an Empire State College student puts together a blog posting for Information Design class. I also have one defined solution, which is that a student should read the instructor commentary, the course text, and the blog assignment instructions and incorporate them into a creative process to create a blog posting. My flowchart to illustrate this process is below.
I have flowchart of the feedback loop involved in the blog creation process in the course in my last posting. But even the process of creating the blog in its entirety has a framework behind it. This flowchart shows a more detailed depiction of blog creation for Information Design class at Empire State College.
How can a Flowchart be used in Information Design?
When working on an information design project, all of our components should follow some logical framework. The flowchart, as a tool to answer questions pertaining to how something is done can be incorporated directly into a piece of designed information to illustrate a process, or it can be used to develop a more language-based piece of designed information. In other words, once we have all our pieces of the flowchart puzzle, we can more easily describe the details of a process.
