Has anyone taken any of the courses from interaction-design.org?

I'm having a lot of trouble getting a job in UX/Interaction Design.

I've seen a lot of discussion with people in the same situation as me, but I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what I could improve on. (specifically in my case)

Here are the things I've been doing/done...

I've recently graduated with an HCI major at the University of Washington. I've taken as many classes I can with design, interaction design, user experience, etc.

JJG's IA Summit 2009 Keynote

The longer that thread gets, the crankier I get, so I'm starting a new one
specifically to talk about Jesse James Garrett's talk at the IA Summit last
weekend. It's what he wanted us to do, anyway.

IX / UX or UI designer?

Hi All,

All through my career, as a Graphic Designer I never explored anything other than graphic and print design. Now, I am interested and want to expand my skill set. I have no coding knowledge, but can understand HTML and css codings. I am not good with coding and at this point in my career, I dont want to get into it. I am interested to learn more about IX, UX and UI design. Wherever I search, I am not able to find any standard description or  defined career path for UX, IX  / UI designer.

Why do designers prefer Mac instead of Windows

Why do designers prefer a Mac instead of the Windows platform?

Probably it is an old topic but I still need to know. I've read substantial amount of blogs, comparisions and write ups on this topic and most of them says there are no big differences between working on a Mac and working on a Windows based PC. However, as I look for universities and colleges across the US which offers Design degrees, especially Interaction Design and Media Arts, almost all of them ask the student to get their own Mac systems.

So please share your views on this.
