List ordering: alphabetical vs. logical?

Does anyone know of any studies, tests, or standards of practice that
discuss when to organize a list of items in alphabetical order vs.
another designed order (such as one based on expected frequency of
use)?

I'm most interested in this topic for web site navigation, but
applicable references for other contexts (e.g. menu design in desktop
applications) would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dmitry

Best practice for for number of items in a dropdown on a web form?

Hello everyone. This is my first post on IxDA. :) I've been
developing web applications for a few years now, and usability has
always been a priority, but I have only really started obessesing
about usability in the last year or so.

A colleague and I had a discussion about the maximum number of
elements that should be used in a (select) dropdown menu on a web
form.

He thinks that fifteen is the maximum. Me? I'm not quite sure what
to think.

User Experience Research & Design Remote Master of Science Degree (M.Sc.), UK

Hi all,

I'm looking for a recognised Master of Science degree in Interactive Design and/or User Experience Research and Design that can be studied by a working profesional online or remotely within the UK (as in the work can be achieved within the UK, the course could however be elsewhere). 

Its important that it is a officially recognised masters degree. 

It doesnt look like the Open University has a suitable course.

Are there any courses that anyone would recommend or think might be worth investigating?

Kind regards,

Phil

Prototyping vs annotated wireframe deliverable

I am wondering if it is possible to create annotated wireframes with a browser chrome or a device around the UI that can be viewed in an annotated deliverable but then be able to remove the chrome/device in the prototype version of the same wireframe file. I.e. Maybe put the device/chrome in a layer that can be turned off when the prototype is generated? Anyone have ideas which programs may be able to do this?

Toronto educational resources

Hi all,

On the heels of Maurice's question about UI/UX/IxDA groups in Toronto,
and Matthew and Mario's excellent answers, I was wondering what formal
UI/UX/IxDA educational opportunities are available in Toronto. I've
checked our list archives, at
http://interactiondesigners.com/topics.php?topic=education, and done
some web searching. What I've found so far is listed below; has anyone
had experience with the below courses and programs?

Mobile Sites and Breadcrumb Navigation

Hi all -
 
Wondering if anyone has any insight or can point me to information on use of breadcrumb nav with mobile sites. Some sites use it, others appear to rely on a back link (or browser back) and a home link as a hub.
