Good sources for online UX training material that can be purchased?

I'm interested in finding good virtual training material that can be purchased and used in house by a large organization of technologists. We've been using the virtual seminars from UIE and like them very much. Can anyone point me to other material? Thanks,

swapping navs?

I'm working on a site where I've maxed out the left nav by the time I
get to the product level. Each product then has its own navigation
within it. The way I see it is that my options are pretty much swapping
out the left nav for the lower level nav, having a right hand nav for
the product, or finding some sort of innovative way to do it in the
whitespace.(the navs are too long to do as whitespace tabs). My
question is if anyone knows of any research done on whether users find
swapping out the left nav for lower level navs confusing.

The Politics of Design

I read this essay every three or four years. I find it to be the most
accurate expression of what I feel day to day in my chosen
profession. I'm sure many of you will figure out who wrote it very
early on, but try to not skip to the end if you can.

Please forgive the transcription errors. I still am a terrible typist
even after all this time.


The Politics of Design

It is no secret that the real world in which the designer functions
is not the world of art, but the world of buying and selling.

Most lab setups I've seen involve a 'face cam' to capture user
reactions. Having run many sessions and captured them to video tape, I
can't say I've ever reviewed the face cam footage.

Any IxD activities in the SFO Bay area next week?


Greetings from Finland :)

I'll be joining the Cooper Design Communication Course on March
28-29. Is anyone else on this list coming too? (http://cooper.com/

Is there any IxD-related happenings around the area during the week?
I'd be happy to hear any tips or ideas. It would also be nice to sit
down F2F with other practioners to talk about what it's like to do
our job in Scandinavia / Finland versus United States.

Call for Participation - CHI2008, in Florence, Italy!


If you think CHI is not for you - think again.

There was a time when CHI bowed to the confines of Academia, leaving
designers and usability practitioners frustrated and alienated. That's
changed, and it has changed in a big way. Since the 2006 conference, the
organizing committee has pushed hard to give practicing creatives a voice in
the programming and structure of the conference.

Doors of Perception conference this year?

Does anyone know if there will be a Doors conference in 2006?

I'm trying to decide on this vs. CHI. It does look like the CHI conference
has made some nice changes (free courses, longer, organization by practioner
discipline, etc.)

It seems like a choice between Inspiration and Facts. Personally, I find
Inspiration in shorter supply these days...one rarely hears complaints about
Inspiration Overload.
