Fwd: Workshop on Gender & Interaction - AVI 2006

I don't often forward CHI announcements like this, but I think this would
interest a large number of people, especially in Europe (where the
conference is).

Interactive Media Designer
Online Synchronous Learning
(Temporary to Permanent)

Design and develop the interactive media element of virtual classroom
experiences -- from concept through launch. (This is not the online
software itself, we may use, e.g., GoTo Meetings or Adobe Connect as a
platform. Instead, imagine a variety of presentation and interactive
experiences -- a PPT presentation, followed by a questionnaire, followed
by a flash movie, followed by breakout session agenda.

within an org that has a mature and deeply invested stake in UX
adoption. No fighting for UX integration here! UX leads the design
from inception. Seriously!

The role is going to require hands-on work designing wires, specs,
flows, etc...

Designing Mystery: Mystery vs Magic - Anticipation vs Wow.

I have read with interest the thread on Exploring the Magic of Design
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=46102) and thought I'd start a
related thread on mystery by posting a link to a blog post...


I'd be interested in responses to this post from other fields of
interaction design.

I have been running closed workshops on Designing Mystery since 2002
and have only r

testing customers vs. internal... people...

Hi there,

I work for a fortune 500 company that owns many brands. For this one
particular one, we are building a consumer portal that will allow them to
pay for their services online and see their next scheduled service time. At
first release they can't do much more than that. Getting any usability
testing done here is like pulling teeth - nobody ever wants to pay a dime
for it and deadlines never are allowed to have much time for it.

video sharing / hosting


I'm about to start work on a concept for a video sharing site to sit
behind a corporate firewall and I'm looking for examples of best
practice. I'm currently looking at what works well / not so well in
YouTube, Vimeo, iPlayer, Ted.

What advice would you give me? Has anyone carried out research into
video sites and how people use them?

In an ideal world we'd carry out extensive research ourselves, but in
this case there isn't time / budget unfortunately.

What do you think works well in the current video sites?

Too deep navigation on mobile phones

I find the developments in the whole mobile space quite exciting, but
I can't get past one issue and I was hoping that some of our mobile
experts and other usability experts could add some depth to one
particular issue.

I have noticed that mobile phones have always had a series of
applications that one uses regularly and as we become accustomed to
our phones we learn the paths to our favorite tools. The mobile phone
seems to becoming more and more multipurpose.

drag-and-drop between Flash list components

I think I saw this on this list a while ago: did anyone point to an
example of dragging-and-dropping elements from one select list to
another in Flash?

(BTW, I'm interested in alternate design ideas or usability suggestions
on this, I'm just looking for a specific example of this interaction
constructed in Flash. Thanks.)
