Applying for research opportunities in HCI focussing on IxD, UX, IA and usability

Greetings! I am a (very recent) graduate in Software Engineering from Sri Lanka and I wish to peruse my higher studies (postgrads) in research based user experience design and development. Professionally I do not have any HCI, usability or UX related work or research experience. As a matter of fact, there are no academic or commercial user experience labs in Sri Lanka. And finding opportunity to gain work experience on such a field is very hard here.

Tips for Performing a Multiple Channel Usability

My cleint wants me to perform a mulitple channel usability test, where we might have someone print a boarding pass on the web, go to a kiosk to print a luggage tag, and use their mobile device to pick their seat.  I think it is best to do this kind of scenario type testing, where I can view the person.

Has anyone ever done a test like this before?  What advice do you have for me?

Form Best Practice for multiple options to upload text

Hi there.

I've been looking for some examples of forms which provide multiple options for the user to input an amount of text.

In my case it would be upload a document, link to the document online or copy and paste the text into a text area.

I'm looking to find out the best way of showing that you can only do one of the three actions.

Any advice much appreciated.

I wish I was Apple


Apple changes the rules again - they've literally reversed the scroll!!!

My internal jury is still out... 

While it's feeling so deeply wrong to change such rules, it actually feels somewhat right (if you forget the paradigm)

Time (In Seconds) of page load, pdf load, etc.?

Hi Everyone,

Is there a tried and true time (in seconds) of proper page load, link opening (say, opening and loading a pdf.) etc. that is the industry average? I realize that theres instances that are the exception. I'm trying to find a specific example that i can use as a UX benchmark to give to testers as a best practice.

Thank you all!

P.S. If you could cite references that would be awesome. Cool
