i'm currently in a master's program in interactive media at london
college of communications. for my dissertation, i'm discussing the
implications multi touch, multi user interfaces would have on current
information architecture standards. for example, navigation for a
multi touch, multi user interface needs to be somewhat universal or
symmetric, something that is not taken into account by current IA
standards.

in your work experience has anyone seen other considerations for
multi touch interfaces that are not taken into account by current
standards?

thank you for your help! best wishes in your many projects and
endeavors.

I forgot to mention that universal design for learning and universal
usability principles should be considered when designing for
multi-touch and multi-user environments.

There needs to be flexibility and allowances for customization within
the program, and also a good understanding of the situations in which
the application will be used.

You have to account for occlusion, the angles that people use when
they point or manipulate the interface with their fingers and hands,
what sort of feedback they might expect, and so forth.

Michelle,

I have posted on this topic quite a bit on two blogs. If you visit
the blogs, do a keyword search. Most of my posts have links to more
detailed information. Also, I've posted in the UX section of the
NUI-Group forum- along with others who have similar interests in the
multi-touch, multi-user area.

Here are the links:
