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?

Pattern Tap : Interface Design Inspiration

This is a wonderful resource!
I will put my pattern-geek hat on for a moment, though, to say that I'm not
entirely comfortable with the way the term pattern is sometimes used to mean
"gallery of examples." Don't get me wrong, I love galleries of examples.
They are awesome.

Also, I think the individual clusters of images can be called patterns in
the sense that they can plausibly be said to depict examples of patterns.

What's missing, for me, is the next step of abstracting what they have in
common and capturing that in some descriptive form.

This may be a language drift thing, tho

Interaction Design vs Interactive Design

Hi Folks,

I am trying to understand and there are some confusion between the two. Are they the same field of design? Is there a clearly defined difference between the two?

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.

Proper layout of article

Articles consist of typical elements: heading, lead, main text and photo(s);
usually there is also some box with "inform a friend", "rate the article",
comments and so on.

I am looking for a studies focusing on this topic: proper web-article
layout.

We are discussing proposed layout of articles in new site; designer's
proposition looks like this one:

Persona Workshops

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone would have any ideas for running an
'interesting and entertaining' workshop where the client reps will
be involved in the process of creating personas.

Thanks a lot for any thoughts or ideas on that.

Cheers

Axure Pattern Library

I've created a small pattern library for Axure containing some useful
widgets and interactions. If you use Axure, or would like to see what kind
of prototypes it generates, take a look:

http://www.acleandesign.com/2008/09/axure-design-library-v1/

Does anyone have their own patterns that they would like to post? I would
also be interested in knowing if anyone found this useful.

Best,
Loren

HCI Masters in the UK - City University vs. University of York

Hello,

I recently got offers from City University and the University of York
to pursue an MSc in HCI.

I am really torn between which university to attend because both seem
to have excellent masters programs. Does anybody have any experience
or feedback regarding the two programs and universities?

http://www.soi.city.ac.uk/pgcourses/hcs/index.html

Any advice will be appreciated!

Thanks,

Continuous Scroll

As supported in the Sympony Open-Source PHP Web Framework, "Ajax Pagination"
allows the client browser to load the content gradually as the user scrolls
down to the bottom of the web page. Once the vertical scrollbar reaches the
bottom it triggers a new page to load. Unlike its common use in separate
frames(i.e. the inbox of Hotmail Live), ajax pagination(weird name) attaches
a new full page to the end of the current one.
