Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.

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:

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

Drop-down menus disadvantages?

Hi, I'm new to the IxDA list.

Do you know any good research highlighting the disadvantages of using
drop-downs?

At my company we're having a discussion whether we should stop using
them for our global navigation due to usability concerns.

Need advice for starting a career in UX/Interaction Design.

Hello everyone,

I'm having a lot of trouble getting a job in UX/Interaction Design.

I've seen a lot of discussion with people in the same situation as me, but I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what I could improve on. (specifically in my case)

Here are the things I've been doing/done...

I've recently graduated with an HCI major at the University of Washington. I've taken as many classes I can with design, interaction design, user experience, etc.

User Research: Three user groups, five hours. What would you do?

I am being given the opportunity to visit a client of our software to
do some user research. I have never been on site with any of our
clients before.

At this client we have 3 user groups two who do different tasks and
one super user who can do everything plus config.

I only have five maybe six hours depending on flights being on time
etc.

We have full access to both groups all day but I would like to send
them some sort of schedule so they are not just sitting around
waiting on us.

Goals:
1. Understand the users and how they use the software.
2. Uncover any pain points.
3.

Feedback on the online master degree program in HCI at DePaul universities

Hey guys!

I recently learnt that DePaul university, Chicago is offering the online course in HCI.

Can anyone tell me if these online courses are equally good as the on campus courses. Would I be losing on anything if I choose to take the online study option?

ACD/UCD Round Two

In an attempt to discover any real difference between ACD and UCD,
here's a concrete question:

Are there different methods/deliverables that we might label more of
an ACD practice or a UCD practice?

To determine this, we should look at what the primary object of the
method is.
