Input needed for courses in Design for Security

My first question on this platform. Well here it goes:

I am restructuring my Experience Design courses for 1st and 2nd year
bachelor students of Security Technology and I would really
appreciate your input. I've already renamed the course "Design for
Security", because it seems to convey the goal of the course
better.

So I want to use methods en techniques from the design discipline to
create more secure/safe environments. Information security is not
what the program is focused on.

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.

Persona creation tools

I am wondering if except for the already well known, whiteboard, sticky notes, markers and large sheets of paper are there any digital tools available to facilitate the collection/analysis of data, creation of personas and of course of scenarios in a shared environment?!

If you are not aware of such a tool, what are the pieces of software that you'd use together in order to satisfy such goals?!

I have found a couple of videos showcasing a prototype for a touch responsive interface created at Stanford that aims at becoming such a tool

present possibilities in terms of interaction to make decisions about

websites for people who use excel

I am working on an Intranet/product catalog application and many users begin
with an Excel spreadsheet and need to get this data into the online
interface. Has anyone worked on or know of websites which allow copying and
pasting of Excel data, hopefully "both ways" (eg, paste data into the web
interface, or paste data from the web interface into Excel)? My client
actually does have a functioning tool that does this, and almost no one uses
it, I suspect because the users are intimidated by the completely blank
screen that they start with.

How can I get the best out of a UX discovery workshop

I'm starting on a project in the New Year where the client has
arranged a 3 hour UX discovery meeting with 20 stakeholders right at
the beginning of the project before I've had any real time to do my
own research.

The client's objectives for the meeting are to define the personas
and user journeys and the first draft of the structure for the site.

After the meeting I will have an opportunity to conduct one-on-one
interviews.

The project itself is to develop a fairly laborious offline
application process into a streamlined online process.
