Simple product filtering implementation - feedback please

Hi there,

I've just put a new bit of product filtering live on a client's site, and I'd love a bit of feedback.

You can read a blog post explaining a bit about what we did here:

and you can view the filtering here:

Senteo's Customer Experience Specialist certification - anyone knows more?

Greetings all,

A coworker is wondering about the value of a "Customer Experience Specialist three-day certification course" offered by a company called Senteo.

http://www.senteo.net/education/certification-program/specialist-certification/

Might this be a good way for a non-UX trained professional to absorb lots of information and be a better manager of teams that include trained UX folks? Does anyone have experience with Senteo or their workshops?

Thanks in advance for any first- or second-hand info,

Hunter

ISCED classification of Interaction design

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to categorize and classify Interaction design in ISCED (International Standard Classification of Education)?

I was denied the possibility to get a scholarship for studying abroad, because they categorized Interaction design as art, and they don't give any art scholarships. But on the other hand they categorized Industrial design as Technical education. I have still 11 days left to appeal against their decision. 

I am really thankful for any nugget of information.

Re: Morality and Windows UI Compliance

Carl,

The Mac interface is hardly better than Windows. The differences are
mostly trivial. I have written a number of critiques of it.

You ask for alternative guidelines: Have you seen my book?

"Also, we're in business, our customers demand
> windows compliant stuff - and yes, this is exactly what they do demand
> however unfortunate that is."

I am in business, too.

Building an iPod remote, navigation limitations

I've got the rather enjoyable task of designing a new interface for remote
control of the iPod.

The hand held remote has the capability for 2 way communication, a full
colour 240 x 320 LCD touchscreen, and the typical up/down/left/right/enter
navigation pad found on just about every remote.

The ability presented to us from the communication protocol gives us the
exact same level of control as one is used to with their actual iPod, so I
originally planned to emulate the exact same functionality the user is used
to, but the hardware of this remote doesn't have a scroll wheel.
The user is there

Any Ixder's working on physical products in the group?

Hey,
Most Ixd discussions in this group are related to web/desktop
applications. Wondering if anyone working with design of physical
product is here? Looking to start a general dialogue specifically in
this area.

Any information on groups/ associations specifically in this area would
be greatly appreciated.

Bringing your attention to something that impacts all of design (education)! Opinions, thoughts?

Georgia Tech is currently planning to eliminate the undergraduate
degrees in industrial design, building construction & architecture in
favor of a generic BS in Design. If implemented, the change will
likely impact all design education as schools, looking for ways to
cut costs, follow suit.

Several design educators & professionals from across the US & Asia
have voiced extreme concern and endorsed the cause.

Please help us reach our goal of 1,000 signatures!
