I have been a lurker but this is my first official post. I recently published a book titled "Interdisciplinary Interaction Design: A Visual Guide to Basic Theories, Models and Ideas for Thinking and Designing for Interactive Web Design and Digital Device Experiences." It's a book geared towards interactive design educators to help transition their students to thinking about interaction design. I try to use visual diagrams and metaphors to make some foreign concepts more accessible.
I am a professional in the field looking for current, up-to-date, interaction design blog recommendations. I am an avid reader of ixd and user experience research, but some of the blogs in our field are out of date.
What some current, great, IXD blogs?
Current IXD health care focused blogs?
Lastly, many of my fellow IXDAer's get valuable user experience information from other types of technology blogs written with a user focused perspective. Know of anything like this?
This is my very first post so I hope I don't do something wrong. I would
really appreciate suggestions for books on Behavioral Analytics. Now
that I've come out of the posting closet, I would just like to say thank
you for the amazing wealth of knowledge you so freely give to all of us
who are out there reading it.
This great collection of resources from GeekChix pulls together some
really useful templates that can be used to plan out your website
design or application in sketch format. The roundup includes grids,
browser interfaces, page templates and iPhone interfaces.
Last night was the first ever, UX Book Club in
Maine! It was an awesome night of insightful discussion and
exploration into the book by Bill Buxton. There were seven of us
at Bard Coffee where we shared:
1. "Takeaways" from
2. Concepts or practices mentioned in the book which
could be used in everyday practice in our work;
concepts, passages or quotes from the book.
I just did a short focus group and light usability test with a couple of children. What I noticed is how important the phrasing of interview questions and usability tasks is, especially with children but also with adults in general.
Has anybody recommendations for books or other resources that can help me in phrasing questions and tasks as neutral as possible?
