Another experience prototype short, for those interested in the genre.
Purpose to articulate and visualize a product concept in context of use. Not
for external audience, but for internal assessment and buy-in. Shot and
produced over 3 days by 7-8 ID & VC students in my Design Scenarios &
Simulations course at KU Design. Problem involved spotting opportunities
for messaging in school environments where mobile phones and text messaging
devices are prohibited. Students are credited at the end.

Error Handling Best Practices?

Can anyone point me to good examples of error handling in online
applications? We're looking to redesign some applications and would
like to see what others have done. The kinds of applications we're
working with are very complex and have a lot of skip logic.

Is it time to grit my teeth and bear it?

I think I know the answer to this but I want to present the case study
for general input. Maybe someone has some brilliant idea I haven't
thought of.

Situation: I'm building a large new application for helpdesk/customer
support/operations people.

what are the effects of your organizational culture on you ?


I previously posted about that : we're investigating the effects of
culture on stress, burnout, etc. and wish to thank everyone who
already filled the
online survey.

The deadline for completing the survey is nearing, so thanks for filling it :

We're still looking for people to answer, whatever the job or field, specially
for those working in big companies and we need more women to answer.

Product usability research with cogntive-impaired people

I wonder whether there are people on this list have experience in
conducting information gathering and/or usability evaluation on products
designed for people with cognitive impairment, such as people with
dementia. One challenge here is that some traditional usability methods
can not applied to this population appropriately, for example, cognitive
walkthrough, interview, survey, focus group etc., although this depends
on different development stages of the disease, and the caregiver can
used as a substitute.

Form Field & Error Assistance Models


I am currently working on an information layer for web-based forms.

Wanted to see if people had seen examples of where field asstance or error
messages sit atop the form (in a layer) vs. showing the errors inline?

That or just good examples of inline errors and a statement of preference.

Trying to avoid page layout issues that would arise when long technial
error and
correction details thrown into the page, but also wanting to ensure
regardless of page position and when large grids vs.
