MSc User Experience Kingston University

Hi,

I have been looking into the Masters in User Experience Design in Kingston University.  I was wondering does any one have any experience of it?  Good, bad or indifferent?

http://www.kingston.ac.uk/postgraduate-course/user-experience-design-msc/

I know it has recently chaged from being an MA and MSc to just being an MSc.  My background is in design and advertising and although I would like to know all apsects of the field research etc, I would not like it to be at the expense of my strengths ie. design.

List ordering: alphabetical vs. logical?

Does anyone know of any studies, tests, or standards of practice that
discuss when to organize a list of items in alphabetical order vs.
another designed order (such as one based on expected frequency of
use)?

I'm most interested in this topic for web site navigation, but
applicable references for other contexts (e.g. menu design in desktop
applications) would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dmitry

designing for behavioral change for the purposes of sustainability

http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/susdesign/design-behaviour/index.htm

This site, "Design | Behaviour" (from the UK) seems really interesting.
They don't talk about IxD, but it really sounds like they are using core
facets of IxD theory and practice in the work being explored.

We had an event here in NYC where we looked at IxD and Sustainable Design a
few months ago and this work seems to be right on target with many of the
talking points in the conversation.

Here at Moto we are looking at this stuff

Omnigraffle IA stencils

Hi all,
For once - a non-snarky Will post. As of this week, I have made the
complete switch to Mac - and after installing Omnigraffle (new OS, new
machine, new everything including new way of doing wireframing and
sitemapping), I am on the hunt for all site mapping and wireframing
stencils.

Symbol / icon for "Clear All" button

Hi,

I'm currently working on an on-screen keyboard as part as the GUI for a set-top box (for typing in passwords, urls etc). I have found that there seems to be a pretty consistent use of symbols/icons for function keys such as Backspace, Shift and Space on existing physical keyboards and mobile devices. So these symbols are pretty well known amongst users. For instance, an outlined up-arrow as the shift symbol.
