like that - specifically while deciding the voice persona.

Eyetracking article on UXMatters

So, I know I said I don't find eye-tracking useful in my own work, but a
study like the recent one printed on UXMatters.com I found to be useful
and I'd be interested in other people's thoughts:


I asked the question about scaling the context. Does the gain achieved
by using a more vertical layout of a form degrade as a form scales below
the fold?

UCD, UX and Usability Courses in London (3 for 2)

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

Thanks to everyone who completed our courses survey questionnaire. Oliver Pink at SAP was the lucky winner of the Amazon voucher.

Based on the feedback from the survey, we've set up a regular programme of UCD, UX, usability and related soft skills courses in London. We may extend this to other locations if demand dictates, but we are always willing to run courses in-house or in specific locations if requested.

Analyzing usability testing notes

Hello folks!

I'm trying to find a better way to do usability test analysis.

My current approach is: after i finish a usability study, with 8 or 10
users, and collected my own and all observers' notes, I usually read all
notes and then immediately write down the issues I feel area appearing
more often (assuming my brain will remember issues that are repeated in
many notes more than issues than appear only once).

Now, how do YOU approach analyzing those notes? Reading and re-writing
by heart? Putting all notes on a wall and eye-balling?

Representing visually the reasoning behind the sitemap.

This might be a good time to use a storyboard or comic representation of key
use scenarios. Those can embody all of the UX research/rationale and also
how that translates into pathways in the site. You could also try site path
diagramming (see Wodtke p.

Need Help on Web Portal Logins

<discuss at lists.interactiondesigners.com>Hi Guys,

As a part of a startup we are launching a web portal in the domain of
student careers.
During our experience strategy there is an issue that seems to be nudging us

It is observed that logins and sign ups are majorly irritating for users as
it takes their time and needs them to fill up forms etc.
In our application we have some information content and some playful and
functional spaces.....Both are critical to the application as a whole.

analyzing qualitative data

Hello all,

I have a background in statistics and it is easy for me to analyze
quantitative data, but I am at a loss when it comes to analyzing
qualitative data. I bought the book Qualitative Data Analysis : An
Expanded Sourcebook by Alan Michael Huberman, but it was difficult to
follow since it did not give examples that I can relate to. I would
really appreciate it if someone could point me to information that
will help me learn more about this topic.

RE: Prototypes, process, and ID (RE:[interactionarchitects] Re: process ... the nextgeneration)

: "Data indicate that 60-80% of the cost of software

: if better design and implementation practices were used"

Fixing defects that are found during testing... if there really was testing
then it's already a significant and important design practice. As John said,
the software industry is used to testing, it's part of the process.
