UX Training

Hi All,

I am considering some UX training and am interested in either the CUA training offered by HFI or the UXD "Mini-Masters" program at Rutgers. Any thoughts on either of these programs? Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time or money to put into this training but am looking for a good overview program and something that I can put on my resume.

Thanks in advance for your input; here are links to both programs:

Found a good Use Case tool

Hi Jeff,

For several years now, I have been using a product called Case Complete
(by Serlio)that you may want to look at...

Here's a link http://www.casecomplete.com/

Once I downloaded the demo, I was using the software in less than 5
minutes and haven't stopped since.

Case Complete allows you to create use cases, organize them into
packages, assign primary and secondary actors to each UC, and more.
