Reminder: Navigation & Menu Design Webinar 5 July

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Reminder: Navigation & Menu Design Webinar on 5 July at 16:30 London Time

The third of our series of Guerrilla UCD webinars is this Thursday (5 July). Whether you and your team are building web sites, intranets or apps the basic principles of navigation and menu design are the same. And while formal information architecture is appropriate for larger projects, in many cases all that's needed to improve user experience is a better understanding of navigation fundamentals.

The webinar covers:

Why all game consoles have joystick on the leftside?

I guess it is just based on the left-hand and right-hand users ration across
the world?

exactly is it you guys find so objectionable about Datagrids?

optimized keyboards(lay-outs) target users?


there has been a discussion here on who might be target user of redesigned
optimized keyboards (lay-outs) here: professional typist or the one who is
about to get familiar with typing with keyboards?! that is if I'm optimizing
a keyboard in user centred design process, which of those two should be the
one who gets involved in UCD iterative process and gathering feedbacks. One
side says: if a professional typist could type with some optimized lay-out
well, then the one with less knowledge of computer should enter text well
too; the other side says vice versa.

looking for: innovative gym/trainer sites

I'm looking for innovative uses of web2.0/IxD functionality on websites of
fitness gyms and personal trainers .. a scan through most of the local gyms
turned up bupkis, a truly sad collection of brochureware.

So, I'm casting my net wider - have you seen or used a website for a fitness
gym or personal trainer that leverages the rich possibilities of modern IxD
functionality, and/or web2.0 community driven content?

Or am I hoping for too much from a bunch of jocks ;-)

Best Practice/Resource for Help Document

Hello everyone. This is my first post on IxDA. :) I recently started
helping with re-architecting the Help document for an internal
content management application, and was wondering if anyone might
have any pointers to resources you know regarding to Help document
architecture, or successful examples you've seen in the tools used.

Thank you so much for your time!

Kind regards,
