UX Links

http://uxdesign.cc/how-to-keep-up-do-date-on-ux-design#!

"A lot of people ask about blogs, books and links that will help them to keep up to date with UX Design. Some of them already work in such role, but constantly struggle to find reliable sources about user experience, usability, information architecture and whatnot. Some of them come from different areas and either want to become UX designers themselves or just want to learn more about the discipline and how it can help them as they are creating digital products.

Well, the truth is that one will never be 100% aware of everything that is being published. Pick some books, pick some blogs, pick some folks to follow and, from that point on, it's just a matter of incorporating that reading into your routine."

"If the HealthCare.gov website fiasco proves anything it is how critical a usable website is."

Why Are We Checking Our Smartphones 150x a Day?

Why Are We Checking Our Smartphones 150x a Day?

http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/arti ... 150x-a-day

"After watching this video I thought about my own addiction: my iPhone sleeps next to my bed and I check email when I wake up. I have troubles to read a chapter of a book without checking my emails, my chat messages or comments on Facebook. It’s extremely difficult for me to not check my phone when I’m at dinner with friends just in case something “important” shows up. I have troubles to concentrate. I have not even been able to write this without looking at what’s happening online."

Three Design Team Leaders on the State of UX

http://uxmag.com/articles/three-design- ... tate-of-ux

"In May I wrote an article for UX Magazine called, “Why You Should Hire a VP of User Experience Design.” For this follow-up article, I've interviewed three UX team leaders to better understand who they are, how their organizations address UX design, how they lead, and what user experience means to them."

"Usability.gov is the leading resource for user experience (UX) best practices and guidelines, serving practitioners and students in the government and private sectors. The site provides overviews of the user-centered design process and various UX disciplines. It also covers the related information on methodology and tools for making digital content more usable and useful.

Content for this site is managed by the Digital Communications Division in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs.

Accessibility and Ignorance

http://svk-nyc.com/journal/2013/08/acce ... 214332#%21

"I wanted to share a great blog post about ignorance written by Mirabai Knight, a CART writer whom I have admired for excellent captioning services and advocacy for deaf and hard of hearing people. However, that post made me respect her even more.

Here’s an excerpt of the post: “Obviously my ignorance didn’t stop them [deaf and hard of hearing people] from doing what they wanted to do. But when you add my ignorance to the ignorance of everyone else they had to deal with, how much more exhausting, frustrating, annoying, infuriating did it make their educational experiences, not to mention other parts of their lives? If I hadn’t gone into CART, I never would have realized the mistakes I’d made in trusting my own assumptions instead of listening to their experiences. Now I do, and I’m mortified when I think of the way I behaved. There’s no easy solution to this problem. One out of every seven people in this country have some degree of hearing loss, and yet so few people actually understand how it works. It’ll take a lot to educate all 312 million people about the 45 million who are Deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing, but it badly needs to be done.”"

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

http://svk-nyc.com/journal/2013/05/acti ... _244452722

"Reading Embodying Empathy by Whitney Hess made me want to share my personal experience – not just as someone who cares about user experience and accessibility, but especially as someone with a profound hearing loss.

I had a pleasure finally meeting Whitney in person last fall after reading her inspiring blogposts for a few years, and seeing her again at a recent conference in Baltimore. And I was also honored to have her attending my talk there. When Whitney was discussing about her plans to do podcasts, she did not question my request for transcripts and even went beyond by asking me about transcripts for iTunes – she was the first person ever asking me that!"

Nurses will never adopt your tech if the usability sucks

Nurses will never adopt your tech if the usability sucks

http://venturebeat.com/2013/05/21/nurse ... UyBY8xO.99

"Nurses are the unsung heroes of the hospital who navigate crappy software on outdated hardware to keep you healthy — and it needs to stop.

Executives from Cedars-Sinai and Kaiser Permanente explained at VentureBeat’s HealthBeat conference that technology innovators need to start focusing on new, consumer-like user experiences and better end-to-end communications software and hardware. Otherwise, nurses are going to start using their own devices, which creates obvious issues in privacy and data management.

Testing touchscreen tables in classrooms

Testing touchscreen tables in classrooms

http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/ ... _240509044

"Forget tiny iPads - the classrooms of the future might turn entire tables into interactive touchscreens.

Given that many children can sit rapturously before a glowing touchscreen for hours, such gadgets seem like a natural for the classroom. But as with any new teaching technology, it's important to make sure it actually helps students learn and teachers teach before getting caught up in its "cool" factor."

Interaction Design is still an art form: Ergonomics is real

Interaction Design is still an art form: Ergonomics is real engineering

http://www.jnd.org/dn.mss/interaction_design_i.html

"The practice of HCI is mainly still an art form. The practice of Ergonomics is a rigorous engineering field. OK, so I oversimplified in order to get your attention, but listen up: there is a lot of truth in that simplification.

The discipline that calls itself “Human-Computer Interaction” or HCI has two major components: research and practice. The research component is done in universities and research divisions of companies. The practice comes from all those interface and interaction designers out there making real products and websites. The research side is a combination of science and engineering, with the major emphasis being on novel applications and means of interacting with machines. I love this stuff, but will have nothing more to say about it here. It is the practice that bothers me. The practice of HCI seems primarily to be an art form and skill, which explains why it is often so bad."
