Bachelors in Design / Bachelors in Psychology : for Masters in IxD


I'm 26. I dropped out of electronics engineering in my final year. 
After that i have worked in the field of Interface Design for 2 years.

With things evolving at the pace that we see, I feel there will be need to take a masters in interaction design course a few years down the line. But since i dropped out, i will need a bachelor's degree and i can't give up work for financial reasons.

Entering multiple values using code in a single field


I work in transport incident management and the idea occurred to me that, when creating an incident, instead of tabbing through fields and completing values (either using the dropdown arrow or keyboard) operators could enter all information into a single field using simple recognised codes and separating the codes with a space.

Guidelines for support documentation for apps

Hi Gurus!

I am currently starting to work on creating a pleasurable user experience for support documentation for an app. This app has versions that run on an iphone, android, mac as well as a windows OS. 

Are there any guidelines or specs for creating such documentation? 

Any light that you can shed on this will be very helpful.
