How do I start a career in IxD? (already have bachelor's, but not in design)

Hi IxDAers,

What would you recommend for someone interested in getting started with interaction design, but who already has their bachelor's?

My plan was to make a website and gradually fill it through designing my own projects (or volunteering if I can find something nearby), but first I wanted to know if there was a better way of going about this.

If it's relevant, I have degrees in Cognitive Science and Studio Art, can teach myself programming languages, and have some experience with counseling and scientific research.

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?

Changing role of user research in the UX design process?

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

Sketch Phone - Sketching for mobile, on paper, in context

For years I have been sketching mobile interfaces at scale. Drawing on templates or just scribbing screen-sized boxes onto my notepads before I pick up the pencil. And I liked to check them in context; in the hand, walking around, etc.

How do I delete a profile on IXDA?

I inadvertently signed up for two accounts. Does anyone know how to delete a profile? For the life of me, I can't find it.

Yes, it's quite funny to be a member of a site of interaction design professionals and there's no obvious delete button located on edit profile page. I've looked through every page, up and down, and can't seem to locate.

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.

Symbol / icon for "Clear All" button

Hi,

I'm currently working on an on-screen keyboard as part as the GUI for a set-top box (for typing in passwords, urls etc). I have found that there seems to be a pretty consistent use of symbols/icons for function keys such as Backspace, Shift and Space on existing physical keyboards and mobile devices. So these symbols are pretty well known amongst users. For instance, an outlined up-arrow as the shift symbol.
