HCI software tools/applications

Hi All,

Can anyone please point me to some exhaustive resources that list various
HCI software tools available for the following categories: a) user task
gathering and analysis, b) UI interface development, and c) usability
testing/evaluation on interfaces? For example: DENIM/SILK can be used for
quick prototyping http://dub.washington.edu/denim/research/, TechSmith's
Morae can be used for in-lab usability testing
http://www.techsmith.com/morae.asp etc.

Thanks,
Oliver

Relocating to Europe - Visas and sponsorship explained + great opportunity

For those who have read on the site - apologies, repost due to email list being down.

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year to you all.

So then, as part of my job I speak to hundreds of folks based in the EU who ask if I have roles for them in the US or Canada etc, and vice versa. My answer is invariably no, not due to a lack of opportunities, but due to the lack of the candidate having a correct work visa or the hiring firm not sponsoring said visas.

Consistent Usage of Log In/Log Out versus Login/Logout

Greetings to all!

I have noticed that many sites utilize inconsistent label terminology
for links allowing a user to enter/exit an online account (be it an
e-commerce site, e-mail system, etc.).

I would expect that since these labels describe an action initiated
by the user (rather than a state), verbs and not nouns must be used:
Log In/Log Out, not Login/Logout.

However, often I see the following combination: Login (noun used to
enter) and Log Out (verb used to exit).

In your opinion, what do you think is the best label combination and
why?

UX Certification?

So I've been asked at work to research UX Certification programs. While I'm
glad that an interest is being taken, I feel to a certain extent that the
whole certification thing is outdated. I'd rather just go to one of
Adaptive Path's UX Intensives (http://www.adaptivepath.com/events/2009/uxi/),
but because no 'certification' is involved, it's not even being considered.
Does anybody know of any programs out there? Anything worthwhile? Cooper
offers certification but they are very vague about what it entails...

Boolean AND & OR in a graphical user interface

Hi everybody,
let me introduce myself: I'm studying Interaction Design in Rome, and
I've been a lurker of this list for about a year.

My question is: what's the best (most intuitive and effective) way to
represent Boolean AND and OR operators in a GUI, in your opinion?

Some background information: the user is not familiar with Boolean
logic, and he needs to choose from a closed set of about 10 different
options, combining those options with AND and OR logical operators.

Any examples or ideas?

I hope my question doesn't sound too silly. Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers,
Pietro

Desktop GUI prototyping tools...

Hi

Any recommendations on GUI prototyping tools specially for desktop
application prototyping. I could find a good list at
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?GuiPrototypingTools and am looking at any feedback
on the ones listed or maybe a new tool not listed there but somebody has
used and strongly recommends.

The need is to capture the paper prototypes into higher fidelity prototypes
that can be tested and reviewed before getting commited for actually coding.

Thanks
Pankaj

Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.

design patterns for list sorting and filtering

Hi,

I'm working on a project where users will have potentially large lists
of items, sometimes personal collections, sometimes search results.
Each item in the list will have a number of fields, but not always
displayed in discreet columns, some of the data will be merged into
sentence form and some in shared columns.

I want users to be able to sort and filter the lists and I'm looking
for some good example of complex sort and filter interfaces. eBay was
a good starting point, but I'd like a few other examples.

Does anybody have any good live examples?

Label left or right align

Basic stuff I know but...

Putting political persuasion aside, does anyone have an opinion on aligning
form field labels left or right to the form field.

I generally prefer to right align so that they remain in close proximity to
the device they are describing. Left aligning (which does have it's pro's in
defining a bounding area) can cause issues with marrying the label to the
device unless using a background colour to suggest the relationship.

Kind regards

KN
