New instance of form different from editable form / avoid labels

Hi Everyone,

I'm designing an "ideal" transport incident management form and it occurred to me to make the "New Incident" form quite different from the "Editable Incident" form.

1. The Editable Incident form would display information entered into the New Incident form summarised in text format (rather than in the field format of the New Incident form) and thus use less space, allowing for more information to be displayed.

2. The Editable form would allow editing of single sections of the form and/or the entire form.

From B.Arch to M.S in HCI


I am a final year undergraduate student, studying architecture and planning.At the end of the course, I have realised that I am not too much inclined to take up professional architecture as a career option and so I am interested in continuing my studies by doing masters in a design related field such as HCI, Interaction design etc. , mainly because of the tremendous job opportunies ahead and also my interest in designing user inferfaces.

I wanted to share an announcement from Dr. Liza Potts, the new Chair for SIGDOC, the ACM Special Interest Group for the Design of Communication. The board has a strong interest in expending the organization's profile in industry and gaining new membership and new vision.

DePaul University Masters in HCI

Hello everyone!

I am a recent graduate, strongly considering a career switch into HCI. I recently got accepted into the DePaul Masters in HCI program. I am more interested in the practical side of HCI, rather than research and was wondering if anyone comment about whether or not it is worthwhile for someone in my position. Is this program well-respected within the HCI community? How does it compare to other programs?

Any advice would be quite helpful.

Thank you!

NYU or General Assembly class/program help

Hello everyone,

I'm a designer/newbie, I've been taking courses here and there and feeling a little fragmented, in many areas but we'll just stick to UX here.
So I'm thinking of entering either the User Experience Certificate program at NYU or the 12 week design course offered at General Assembly. Anyone have any experience with the quality of their curriculum or their instructors? How about job placement program? Any suggestion would help I woud like some input before plopping down the ransom they demand. Or could these classes be duplicated?

"Wrapping" multiple apps within the same App // Multitasking within an App

I am curious if anyone has come across any well executed examples of multiple apps living within the same app. I know this might sound a bit confusing, but basically think of it like an "App Wrapper" that allows multiple apps to live within it. 

Another way to think about it is multi-tasking within an app, not utilizing the native OS functionality. 

I've had a really hard time finding any examples of this, and I figured that I would throw it out there and see if anyone else has...
