touch screen kiosk accessiblity

Hi folks,

Does anyone have any ideas on how to ensure physical/navigational
accessibility on a touch screen (Apple) display?

I'm working on a design specification and accessibility plan for a
museum in the UK that is particularly sensitive to access issues. So
far, my only thought has been to provide a keyboard or trackball
device in addition to the touch screen.

Re: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Are you asking about the concept or the labeling?

For the concept, there are valuable "identity" consideratinos from social design patterns at http://habitatchronicles.com/2008/10/the-tripartite-identity-pattern/.

For the labeling, I understand "username" as authentication, and "screenname" as display, which despite bound to the same person, must be kept separate for many reasons you can read on that link above.

Good luck!

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW)

I just discovered a wonderful resource on the Web: MIT OpenCourseWare. In
their own words:

"MIT OpenCourseWare (MIT OCW) makes the course materials that are used in
the teaching of almost all MIT's undergraduate and graduate subjects
available on the Web, free of charge, to any user anywhere in the world.
This initiative continues the tradition at MIT, and in American higher
education, of open dissemination of educational materials, philosophy, and
modes of thought.
