Design of forms on web vs paper

I've been involved in a few debates about this question lately and
would like to write an article summarising the different positions.
It would be great if you could spend a few minutes emailing me or
posting your personal position on the following query:

"As a matter of best practice, should forms on the web be designed to
look like their paper equivalents? Why/why not?"

I recognise that this is a fairly "open" question but there are lots
of different ways that one could come at this issue and I'm keen to
hear about them all!

To use a colon or not to use a colon after field labels

Could anyone help me on the subject of whether to use colons after field
labels. I have found one accessibility paper and a few other
not-so-respected sources that indicate that colons after field labels
help screen reader users, as well as normal vision users, to expect an
input field. However, after years of including colons after field
labels, our copy dept now maintains that a colon is punctuation and
shouldn't be included after field labels. I've also found Jarrett's, "No
one cares about colons but UX people" and Luke W doesn't mention it in
his book :(.

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.

Interaction Design vs Interactive Design

Hi Folks,

I am trying to understand and there are some confusion between the two. Are they the same field of design? Is there a clearly defined difference between the two?

Next & previous button order

As discussed by LukeW in Web Form Design, it's best to have the primary
action of a form be the first button that the user sees. For left-to-right
languages this means having the primary action on the left and any secondary
actions on the right (see A in this illustration
http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosenfeldmedia/2366430953/ ).

good examples of online advertising

Hello all

I am looking for Interesting, fun, rich, interactive (anything really)
examples of good online advertising. I am designing a site that
requires featured space (ads to inspirational content) in order to break the
user's normal purchasing habits (in an attempt to increase average order
value)

Any examples of good online advertising?

(No static banners ads please)

Many thanks

Interaction Design or HCI higher studies

Hello,

I intend to pursue a Masters Degree in Interaction Design or HCI from
US or Canada (MDes or MS).

I am about to finish my Graduate studies in Computer Science (MS in
CS) with a GPA of 3.1 (including one really low grade). I have some
pretty strong project work that can cover-up the GPA deficiency to
some extent. Also I have taken courses like Virtual Reality and User
Interface Design.

Given this background, is it wise to even try for higher studies in
interaction design or HCI?
