Just to give you a quick heads up that Nokia has now launched a careers group on LinkedIn. Please search for Nokia: Global Careers. We are aiming to create a one stop community for news, discussion and live roles. So far the response has been amazing and we have had hundreds of requests to join in the last couple of days alone.
So if you're thinking about a new role or if you're looking to engage in the Nokia Career community then please come and join.
Just a few hours back when I was speaking to a musician friend of mine, he seemed very frustrated about the interface of a sound-mixing software. As a usability and user interface professional, I never ever understood one thing: In the music world, there are so many softwares and so many workstations used to create music and certainly people want to buy these expensive products yet they are scared of one question. The question is how do they learn them??
I´m starting the redesign of a huge amount of eLearning Content for a University, a lot of the redesign consist in the implementation of Interactive Activities instead of the "info...info... info... quiz" model.
Does anyone know about a design model for this? also any tips or advice would be appreciated
We’ll be submitting a number of course proposals to the CHI and UPA conferences in the coming months, plus we want to arrange a series of public one-day courses on design and usability. It would help us enormously to know what folks would actually be interested in attending.
Hi, I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].
Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.
I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:
The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?
If you are an experience design professional passionate about Search,
you must attend the Enterprise Search Summit in NYC May 11-12. I have
spoken on designing social search in the enterprise as well as designing
search experiences a few times at this conference – and it really is
the best conference around this problem space. Our good friend Peter Morville will be one of the keynote speakers talking about Search & Discovery Design Patterns. Again - this is pretty cool.
