How to help a new employee to get started

I am looking for insight and best practices to how to help a new designer
get started with the team, company and the product. I haven't been in a
situation where I was responsible for this so I am slightly at a loss.

How do you approach getting a new designer familiar with everything. What is
a good way to spend the first day? What is a good day to spend the first
week? Is there anything you ask them to do specifically to benefit from
their fresh status?

Is a Flash-intro to a personal portfolio still good/relevant?

Let's assume that you've done the proper work to provide a "Skip
Intro" button. Let's further assume that you've done at least the
minimum to make your content accessible to people without the Flash

The question I ask, then, is: does having a Flash intro to a personal
site, which may include one's portfolio or resume, make sense in
today's job market and design environment?

online photo galleries

hello all -

i am curious as to your thoughts on online photo galleries.

when i say photo galleries i am speaking of both:
1. the management of personal galleries (eg. kodak gallery) and
2. viewing public galleries (eg. 'photos of the day' on any online publication)

good examples? bad examples? why? one technology vs another?

thanks for any ideas you all may have!

happy holidays,

Usability survey validation, please help

Hi all, I am creating a usability survey that encompasses some of the specifics tasks to my project. I want to validate the survey by comparing it to similar surveys as well as dissimilar surveys (to also hopefully discount of some unrelated potentially influencing factors.) Can anyone recommend some good surveys unrelated to usability that I can use for this. Some Ideas would be job satisfaction, emotional intelligence etc. All ideas are welcome, including good old related usability surveys (i.e. SUS, SUM) I may be missing some.

Card Sorting Software

As a primarily e-commerce/call center based store, we do not have much
opportunity to utilize customers for in house studies such as card
sorting. I have found a few online solutions through Google, but I
wanted to reach out to the community and see if anyone could recommend
something better.

Thank you!

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.

SCAD IxD & ID Classes sponsored by Freescale Envision a new Smartbook category

I have had some great students so far at SCAD and my not posting their work
here previously is not about the quality of previous work, but more about
the total story of their work. In the last 10 weeks, I have been privileged
to work with 2 classes (my own graduate interaction design class and an
industrial design class led by Verena Paepcke-Hjeltness).
