Looking for an updated college list that offer Masters In Interaction Design / HCD - Etc..

I've been searching high and low for a good list of colleges that offer an all Online Only Masters in the UX, UI, Interaction design field.  

Anyone know of or have a list? There was one on here at one time but it doesn't seem to be update.

 

Thanks!

 

Also -  I updated my password on the IXDA site, and noticed that it violates the first rule of forms in regards to password. It didn't tell me I couldn't use special characters. Took me several times to get updated, before I just guessed that was the reason it was blowing.

iPhone SDK

So, are any of you excited by the opportunities offered by the SDK
announcements yesterday? Having access to multi-touch, gestures, the
accelerometer, and location-based services—the possibilities for
innovative, or at least unique/interesting/fun interactions has me
salivating. I know nothing about Objective-C, but I sure am tempted
to get my feet wet.

No matter how much you talk about User-Centered Design, it only really makes sense within the framework of Value-Centered Design:

Open format between Visio and Omnigraffle?

After observing the list for a while, it's clear that our community is split
between Visio users on PCs and Omnigraffle users on Macs. Is there a format
common to both Visio and Omnigraffle with which we can publish stencils,
templates, etc. so we don't have to duplicate our efforts? Alternatively,
are there simple converters between the two formats?

Terminology: import-export or upload-download

As I have always used them they mean different things, so both are appropriate in their contexts.

Upload/Download refers to location -- e.g., you upload to a web site and download to your laptop.

Import/Export refers to format -- e.g., you export from Word to RTF, or you import a CSV file into Excel.

Persona Names

I am running a persona workshop with our client partners to flesh out
some of the behavioral aspects. As part of a "fun" exercise, we would
like to have persona naming as part of the event. Normally, when I
pick names, I make up something based on my IM list, mashups of TV
characters from shows I watched recently, or something along those
lines.

Does anyone have a process in place (or ideas) for how our group might
choose names collaboratively?

Thanks,

Matthew Zuckman

Pros and Cons of Wireframing tools

Hi All,

My team is evaluating wireframing tools, and I would love to get some
feedback from this list. Things tend to be leaning towards Visio at the
moment. Being a designer, I'm not too thrilled at the idea of using
Visio.

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.
