best practices: integration of tools within a content site

Hi all,

I took a look through the archives but didn't see any discussions on this
topic. If there are any you can point me to please let me know.

What I'm looking to do is put together a list of best practices for
integrating supporting tools into the content portion of a site. For
instance let's say I'm trying to plan for college and I go to a college
planning site (not sure one like this exists, but for examples sake).

mobile device scrolling & text selectionproblem..

>> Scrollbar = "wheel" metaphor = move the scrollbar up to move the page down.
>> iPhone = "shoving" metaphor = move the page directly, by touching it, so the page moves in the same direction as the motion of your finger.

Anne, I have noticed it too. It reminds me of the Adobe Acrobat hand tool.

Re: Color and Usability / User Experience

While I'm sure someone has researched how a particular shade of red improves conversions I believe that contrast and understanding how certain hues recede vs 'pop ', emotions of color etc. Smashing Magazine has a good color theory article that I will link to later.

Preserving Filter Selections

Hello everyone,

I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:

The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?

Your opinions are very welcomed.

New encyclopedia on Interactive Design, Usability and User Experience

Dear friends of interaction-design.org,

We are proud to introduce a new type of top-quality and free encyclopedia dealing with Interactive Design, Usability, and User Experience. It has taken the opposite approach of Wikipedia and crowd-sourcing: All entries are written by leading figures who either invented or contributed significantly to each topic.

The new encyclopedia features video interviews which we flew around the world and shot at different universities.
