What questions to ask for a persona interview?

Hi,

I am pre paring to conduct an interview to create personas for a medical web application doctors and patients. This app is not built yet, and the feature set will be drawn from the personas -- which is why it's giving me a pause. I am used to writing interviews about usability, and always used to work with existing websites. I never created personas before, though I used them before, and I'm having difficulty coming up with questions to ask the interview candidates.

MSc User Experience Kingston University

Hi,

I have been looking into the Masters in User Experience Design in Kingston University.  I was wondering does any one have any experience of it?  Good, bad or indifferent?

I know it has recently chaged from being an MA and MSc to just being an MSc.  My background is in design and advertising and although I would like to know all apsects of the field research etc, I would not like it to be at the expense of my strengths ie. design.

Interview Questions for Persona Development

As part of an independent study project (U Texas iSchool student),
I'm developing personas to help guide the BBA site redesign efforts.
I have access to a wealth of demographic, survey and web analytics
information and also plan to speak to the undergraduate program
office about their perceptions of the site and its users.

Please send your advice about what questions to ask (undergraduate
business school students) when doing interviews for persona
development. I hope to tease out user goals and behaviors.

Password Strength Requirements

Does anyone have any evidence, anecdotal or formal, about how
different password strength requirements impact the usability of a
web-based application?

There's a spectrum of different strength requirements. I've seen
sites that don't have any requirements, other than the password
exists.

Which tools are you using for remote usability testing and unmoderated user testing?

Hello everyone,

We're shopping for an unmoderated user testing tool and I'd like to know which tool you would recommend.

There are several tools out there... I found Solidify app (for prototyping test) by ZURB. Anyone using it? If so, how do you rate it as usefull in terms of detecting early usability problems in the prototype or mockup? If it has helped you, how?

If you has used other tools, how'd you rate it (pros xs cons)? 

Thanks.

Patricia

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.

Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

Hi,
I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.
