best practice for security questions

Hi there

Can anyone point me in the direction of sample security questions that could
be used to verify a user's identity if they don't have an email address and
have forgotten a password? EG Mother's maiden name, first school etc etc.

I think best practice would be to let a users set the question themselves,
but in this case we need to offer a set of questions for the user to choose
from.

Thanks for the tips,
Sam

Estimation process for UX services by hours or by deliverables?

Hello community

Apologies if this is a thread that has existed already, however, I would like to get your input on this.

One thing that we have noticed with clients when they ask for estimates is that they ask the UX team to detail every single action for each activity we suggest to perform (for the proposal), and because of this, the billable hours/days start to pile up and then we ended up with a massive quotation.

The nature of the UX work is not as streamlined as the developers (or even designers) work where they have to write code following a set of directions and with an outcom

Persona Workshops

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone would have any ideas for running an
'interesting and entertaining' workshop where the client reps will
be involved in the process of creating personas.

Thanks a lot for any thoughts or ideas on that.

Cheers

Creating a UI Spec Document Template

Right now our small team is communicating UI changes and enhancements
with developers using PowerPoint mock ups with notes. I am concerned
this will eventually backfire and would like to bring a little more
formality to the process. Is anyone willing to share their UI spec
document and/or recommendations for putting together a spec. I have
used the PayPal format before but it has been a while and I don't
remember everything that was in it.

Since our team is very small I don't want to bring about a lot of
paperwork just something to make sure we have all of our bases
covered.

Thanks,
Jamie

Tools for building a pattern library

What tool(s) did you use to set up your UI pattern library?

I know this question has been asked before*, but after repeated searches I'm not finding much of an answer. Seems there aren't any simple ways of doing this.

I'm currently using a mix of documents in collaboration with custom built (aka one-off) web-based solutions, but these aren't optimal for several reasons:

Feedback on the online master degree program in HCI at DePaul universities

Hey guys!

I recently learnt that DePaul university, Chicago is offering the online course in HCI.

Can anyone tell me if these online courses are equally good as the on campus courses. Would I be losing on anything if I choose to take the online study option?

Type ahead vs. auto fill

Working on a report and curious about the groups feedback. Is there a
difference in definitions for Type Ahead and Auto Fill? Are they
fully interchangeable?

Thanks!

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.
