Event description: 

The second of three talks in a monthly series on practical user experience design will be offered at 6:30pm on Thursday, October 14th, 2010 at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey.

The first and last talks in the series are about collecting intelligence and sharing the vision. The middle talk is a case study that bridges these themes. All three talks are being given by leading practitioners who are experienced in serving large and small business clients.

In the second talk, which is scheduled for Thursday, October 14th, Marc Wendell will present a case study based on "Showcase," a new product from Elsevier. He will describe how user feedback influenced the design of the site, and how technical, business, and time constraints affected the chosen design. He will also provide insights into the documentation process that was used to keep the team on track.

Marc Wendell is a product manager at Elsevier, and remains an honorary member of their global user-centered design team. He has been heavily involved in user understanding, usability testing, interaction design, and content strategy for Showcase, which enables universities and other research institutes to publicly communicate the output of their research across a wide cross section of scientific disciplines.

The Interaction Design Association works to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of interaction design. The IxDA Northern New Jersey local group meets monthly to foster a local community of professionals and students who seek to improve their understanding and skills in interaction design and related user experience disciplines.

Drew University's highest priority is excellent, liberal education in a changing world. Its programs prepare individuals for significant contributions to society by promoting intellectual rigor and an ethos of curiosity and achievement in an intentionally intimate community of learning.
