RCA's IxD Program Changes Its Name

From Interaction Design to...Design Interactions. Huh.

"The focus of the department is shifting, and although electronics
and computing will remain at the heart of the course, we will begin
to explore how design can connect with other technologies, such as

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

by heart? Putting all notes on a wall and eye-balling?
