and NONE of these have Interaction Designer, Usability Specialist,
User Experience Designer or other User Centered Design related

What to do? Do you guys have any suggestions?

Advise needed on career change

Hi everyone,

I'm freelance graphic designer. I know web design programs such as HTML, dreamweaver, flash, actionscript, jquery, CSS. I can design and build a website, but I have hard time "breaking" into the web design/interactive design job position/title. I need your advise. Should I go to back to school to get MA in interactive/interaction design or UX design? or certificate course will do. BTW, I also do pro-bono web design work for non-profit, but the process has been really slow.

[Job] Software Tutorial Video Production, McGraw-Hill NYC, Contract

Our UX team is looking for someone to create some short
tutorial videos for an online application that we have developed.
I'm hoping someone here is interested in the gig or can refer someone good that they've used.

These tutorials would be standard screen-capture with voice-over
videos, very much like the type found on lynda.com (we may or may not
require you to provide the voice-over talent). We are doing most of the
scripting and storyboarding in-house but require someone to do the
actual production work.

"The Brain" and "MindManager" and Post-it notes

Mind mapping tools

I wonder if anyone used the low tech approach: mind mapping,
brainstorming and categorizing with Post-it notes. How does it compare
to the software?

On positive side Post-it notes seem to be more collaborative, to have
lower participation threshold by virtue of being low tech (similar to
paper prototypes) and because people get a chance to physically move
around, play with their hands while pasting notes on white board. Is
this correct assumption about ease of collaboration?

The setbacks I see: 1. No remote participation, 2. Archiving results
for reference and 3.

Medical Appliances, Touch panel interface

I've been looking for some examples of the interfaces that are installed in
medical environments, specifically designed for monitoring / controlling
Does anybody know of some good online references with examples?
Specifically, the device must be controlled by the touchscreen.

Or online references to some of the specific concerns that the hospital
environment introduces to HCI.
Thanks in advance,

Putting your eggs in one basket: What single prototyping tool to learn.

Fellow IXDers,

A question I keep running up against from colleagues and friends in the field: If I only have time to learn one technology to help enhance my IxD practices (such as basic wireframing), which one should it be?
