Sketching before the Wireframes

Hi Folks,

I wanted to ask around on the process of creating wireframes for designing mobile applications. In creating these wireframes, should I work on paper before actually hopping into a drawing program to lay out these wireframes? I believe working on paper is faster and easier before laying out the wireframes for a project. However, the company I am working with, might be wondering if I am wasting my time. That I should be doing wireframes within the drawing program. What are your suggestions and thoughts on this issue?

Research Frameworks - Definition, Examples & Creation?

Hi all,
This idea of the "research framework" has really gotten stuck in my mind
since we began altering our process here at Evantage. But here's the
problem... I don't have a specific definition of what exactly this means. So
I've made one up:

Research Framework: A collection of things to ask & things to observe in
particular contexts, along with contextually appropriate techniques for
doing so.

Flowchart: action box or decision box?

I'm doing an exercise to practice the design of task flow. I have one
step which has 5 options in it. And the user is supposed to choose one
and move forward. In this case, shall I use the diamond decision box
or the rectangular action box to illustrate this step? I googled a
little bit. And it seems that the outcome of a diamond box is usually
YES or NO instead of options. Where can I find more complicated
samples for learning purpose? Thanks.

"Confirm password" field - Superfluous?

I have a design for a new user registration form in which I am proposing to
not use a "Confirm password" field and would like your feedback on this
decision.
The form will have 4 fields, all of which are required:

1: User name (This will be supplied to the user prior to their using this
form)
2: Password
3: Hint question
4: Hint answer

The form also has some explanatory text that describes the use of the hint
question and answer which is that the pair of fields will be used when the
user forgets their password.

"New article" vs "Create article" vs "Add article"

Hi guys,

Could you please tell what do you think is better to use as link text in
CMS:
- New article
- Create article
- Add Article
?

On one hand, it's good to use verbs/actions - "Create", "Add".
On another - people are used to "New" command in desktop apps (at least on
Windows).

Thank you.

Good examples of IVR, (Interactive voice response), Interaction Design Standards

I'm working on an IVR project and was wondering what were the best
Interaction Standards/ Guidelines which IxD'ers have used, to create
successful IVR solutions.

The IVR project I'm working on comprises many functions for multiple roles,
and is supposed follow standards and be very simple, forgiving and easy to
use, all with touch pad technology.

Others IVR project experience would be interesting to hear, no pun intended
;)

Thanks,

Rich
