Difference between Heuristic Evaluation and Expert Review

Hi all,

In Heuristic evaluation, evaluator evaluates design with reference of
design principles to find out the usability issues.
How “Expert Review” is different from this? Is there any major
difference or it’s the same?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Kishor

Password Strength Requirements

Does anyone have any evidence, anecdotal or formal, about how
different password strength requirements impact the usability of a
web-based application?

There's a spectrum of different strength requirements. I've seen
sites that don't have any requirements, other than the password
exists.

Current Design Topics

I'm preparing my design seminar for the Fall semester, which is a
masters-level course. The last time I taught this specific course was
2005. I assigned readings on the following subjects:

Design Certification
Offshore Outsourcing
Design & Business
Formal Education vs. Self-taught
Design Ethics
Design Leadership
Making a Business Case for Design
Experience Design

Many of these are still relevant four years later, but I want to keep
the discussions contemporary. If you were picking current topics for
students to read, write about, and discuss, what would they be?

Ajax product configurator examples

I'm helping a friend who has a small business (total employees: 1, total
budget: $0 or maybe less) brainstorm ideas for a custom product configurator
for his website. Similar sites might allow you to see the clothes on a model
and change shirt colors, add various designs to a t-shirt, or customize your
new Mercedes colors, wheels, etc. He's curious to find out if this sort of
product configuration can be done well using Ajax/Web 2.0 technologies.

Asking twice for email address in a form

Hi,

Me and my collegues have a discussion about how to minimize the problem that
people are (apparently) not able to type in their own email address
correctly. In the application we developed for a customer this turns out to
be quite an issue.

One of the possible remedies could be to ask people to type in their email
address twice, just as it is often done with passwords.

However, we wonder how effective this will actually be. This trick will not
help if people 'copy-paste' their email adress.

Hi Everyone,

My company is currently looking into tools to manage use cases and

*Sub-use case/scenario:* The user has mistyped their password while logging
in.
*Associated features: *Login screen, password security feedback, lost
password functionality, error feedback system.
*Associated users/actors: *Child, parent, administrator
