interaction design training in Montreal?

Hi all,

I have been scouring these forums for a few days looking for school/training to start a career in interaction design. I graduated from a computer science degree and have been working as a developer (web, app you name it) for the past 5 years. From all the threads I found, there seems to be only three schools that offers a graduate program in that field: University of Toronto, Carleton University and Simon Frasier University. Are there any schools (like centre NAD) where I can get some training?

Issues related to text entry using remote.

I would like to know opinions or prior experiences on the issue of
handling 'text entry on screen' for UI's which are controlled by a
remote (a remote with keypad).

Do your users prefer a particular approach over other?
Is there a best (or a good) remote keypad layout for text entry?
How do you deal with this issue when the keypad has only numbers and arrow keys?
How does it change when you have a ball or a scroll pad on remote?

I understand that this is a very broad question because a lot can
change based on layout of the remote, controls on the remote like
scrolls, cursors, ball etc

Back to Top links - should these be translated for multi-language sites?!

Dear All,

Sorry to be asking such a basic question, but I don't have any research to
back up my belief so I throw myself on the collective wisdom of this list:

Should 'Back to top' - or equivalent - anchor links be translated into each
language of a multi-language site?

My instinctive reaction is 'yes': it would provide a consistent language
experience throughout the page and sitelet, and avoid any miscommunication
in something that should be a straight-forward navigation element.
