Education Interaction Design

Dear all,

a while ago I started a google map with universities offering interaction design courses in Germany. It would be great if I could ask you for suggestions of related courses in your country: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=111762822334715389586.00048782c862d08f261c6&z=

Many thanks!

sliders & sparklines combined

Nice use of AJAX. I like this except that it is very low on the page,
and the page scrolls down thus you can't change parameters and see
the change dynamically. Flash/Flex would allow you to do this very
easily. Without instructions (unless it's clear in Swedish) of some
sort - verbal or visual - it can be a tad confusing. I like the bars
(available results) above the slider.

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on Alan Cooper'sKeynote)

Ambrose, glad to see someone with you background actively participating in these discussions. This is what we need.

>From your description, what I see missing the time to explore the design space. Bill Buxton had a great slide (and simple one) showing the design process. In words: Design is about choice.

You need to generate a lot of GOOD options so that you can then make a GOOD choice.

Hypothetically. Maybe one good interaction metaphor for your product is a step-by-step process over several pages.

Evil Datagrids! ( was Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote )

" Datagrids are the evil demonic spawn of feable minds and people of
small souls!!!"

As a part-time UI dev on a Datagrid (and form) heavy Flex app, what
exactly is it you guys find so objectionable about Datagrids?
