View page Vs. Edit Page

Well, actually it is like this... There is an edit icon on clicking of which
a page opens where comments can be entered/edited. When the user has to just
see it and not really edit it, is it advisable to give another icon on
clicking of which a page opens only for "viewing" and not for editing ??

Not only in this context but for many admin sections as well, such as a
profile page, where data can be entered/edited and also if the user wishes
to only see them and not really edit them, is it advisable to give two
different links - one for view and another for edit???

Re: Education formal or informal or both

On the other hand, the benefits of 'going the academic' path as a way
to get into interaction design:
1) you get structured exposure to a wide range of concepts, techniques
and principles in a very short amount of time
2) you are challenged to learn, produce and explore in a much more wide
ranging and rigorous manner than in the commercial world
3) and, depending on your institution of choice, it can be *very*based
in practice, in the doing of the work, as well as knowing the theory
behind it
4) plus, you leave with a formal degree which generally gives you a leg
up over other job-seeker

Usability of Usability

Usability is an important aspect to be looked at for making any system achieve its ROI and to give its users an ‘experience’ that will help foster a better culture in the organization. As the ultimate target of any system is to establish change management and to promote organizational innovation via modifying the behaviour or culture of the people in the organization, it becomes imperative that aspects of usability are engrained into the goals and processes of the organization.
