As a primarily e-commerce/call center based store, we do not have much
opportunity to utilize customers for in house studies such as card
sorting. I have found a few online solutions through Google, but I
wanted to reach out to the community and see if anyone could recommend
something better.

Thank you!

Hi Thomas,

When I was a graduate student, I worked on a simple cardsorting
prototype for a project on mobile computing. My team and I developed
a multi-stage cardsorting protocol and then put part of it online to
give us a larger reach for recruiting.

http://milife.howardesign.com/generative/cardsort/

Each card movement was recorded (by IP address) and could be visually
reconstructed step-by-step later on when we viewed the results. It
wasn't bad, but we got more out of doing the card-sorts in person.
This kind of research isn't just about the data, it's about the
conversations the exercise promotes.

I suggest you email Donna Maurer, who has conducted a lot of research
into online card sorting solutions for her upcoming book: Card
Sorting, publisher: Rosenfield Media

if there's a windows version, but you migtht as well check their

Thomas,

You might check out Websort (http://websort.net/). It's a flash-based
online interface, so you can send the URL to whoever you want to
complete it. The only thing I don't like about it is that it uses a 3-
column interface, so you can't see the cards you've already placed
into groups.
