Design guidelines for an interactive whiteboard

Hey everyone,

Recently I was asked to help design an interactive whiteboard application for the classroom. it is going to be a playful educative application about the basics of music production. The teacher is going to use it mostly, but the children also have to use it in some cases. One of the core teaching methods is collaboration.

My question is if there are any guidelines how to design such an application? The do's and don'ts? It also would be great if someone knows some good examples.

Guidelines for developing for older adults


Does anyone know of guidelines or design patterns specifically aimed at interface design for older adults? Could be for mobile devices, web interfaces or any other kind of device with a visual display.

Thank you!

Portfolios (was: Guidance for someone interested inyour field)

Joshua Seiden said:

I'm hiring designers. Thus, I need a
demonstration of design ability, not just speaking
ability. So, to my original point, I want another (or
an additional) tool.

***A well-written, detailed specification certainly demonstrates one's
design ability. Of course, they can't be posted online.

Browser throbbers are broken

Browser throbbers are broken. These spinning, swirling, pulsing
artifacts were a great way of indicating state back when a web page
wasn't loaded until it was loaded, and once it was loaded it didn't
need to load any more.

But the Web 2.0 blah blah has crept up on us, and I suddenly find
myself waiting for pages to load with no indication of state. I
interact with pages, wait for a response, but find myself without any
idea of whether the connection is actually working, or how long it
might take to finish the transaction.
