  2. Designing with Sensors

    How do we utilize sensor and user data to create experiences in the digital world? We all know that smart devices have sensors, but how can we use this as a resource to acquire information about the user and his environment? And how can we use this information to design a better user experience that is both unobtrusive and transparent? The simple answer: we create adaptive systems.

    Join speaker Avi Itzkovitch to discover core concepts for utilizing smart device technologies and sensor data in order to understand context, and add “adaptive thinking” to the UX professional’s toolset when designing experiences. In his presentation, Avi will demonstrate the importance of context when designing adaptive experiences, give ideas on how to design adaptive systems, and most important, inspire designers to think how smart devices and context-aware applications can enhance the user experience with adaptivity.

  5. Karen McGrane - Adapting Ourselves to Adaptive Content

    For years, we’ve been telling designers: the web is not print. You can’t have pixel-perfect layouts. You can’t determine how your site will look in every browser, on every platform, on every device. We taught designers to cede control, think in systems, embrace web standards. So why are we still letting content authors plan for where their content will "live" on a web page? Why do we give in when they demand a WYSIWYG text editor that works "just like Microsoft Word"? Worst of all, why do we waste time and money creating and recreating content instead of planning for content reuse? What worked for the desktop web simply won’t work for mobile. As our design and development processes evolve, our content workflow has to keep up. Karen will talk about how we have to adapt to creating more flexible content.

    Presented by Karen McGrane at the Breaking Development Conference held in April 2012 in Orlando, FL.

    If the internet is more awesome than it was in 1995, Karen would like to claim a very tiny piece of the credit. For more than 15 years Karen has helped create more usable digital products through the power of user experience design and content strategy. Today, as Managing Partner at Bond Art + Science, she develops web strategies and interaction designs for publishers, financial services firms, and healthcare companies.

    Prior to starting Bond, Karen built the user-centered design practice at Razorfish in her role as VP and National Lead for User Experience. Karen is also on the faculty of the MFA in Interaction Design program at SVA in New York, where she teaches Design Management, which aims to teach students how to run successful projects, teams, and businesses.

  6. Aaron Gustafson – Adapting Your Designs with Progressive Enhancement » UIE Brain Sparks

    It’s difficult to predict how users will access your designs and your content. More and more, people are connecting to the internet through some sort of mobile device. Using the latest advances in HTML and CSS can leave aspects of your site incompatible with some browsers. How do you ensure that you’re providing a good experience to your users over a broad spectrum of scenarios?

    Aaron Gustafson, author of Adaptive Web Design, believes that progressive enhancement can help. He says that progressive enhancement is a great way to get designers to think about the user first. As he states in the podcast, “the best browser is the one you have with you… so why are you making it impossible for me to do something super simple?”

    Approaching your designs in this way, you avoid putting technical restrictions on your users. You end up delivering a rich experience appropriate to them in their context. You can employ CSS3 and JavaScript to create a robust experience for those who have capable browsers. But you can also remain accessible and able to perform on older browsers or less capable devices.

    In this podcast, Aaron and Jared Spool discuss adaptive web design in more depth. It’s a small taste of the daylong workshop Aaron will be presenting at the User Interface 17 conference in Boston, November 5-7, 2012. Learn more about UI17 at uiconf.com.
