  1. Tania Lang — Using Ajax to enhance UX

    Ajax is changing the way that users interact with websites — it has the potential to provide richer and more interactive online user experiences but also introduces its own set of usability and accessibility problems. This session will present views from leading usability experts from around the world from an experienced practitioner workshop conducted at the Usability Professionals Conference in USA.

    We will also discuss key usability issues we have unveiled through our own usability testing of a range of websites using Ajax over the last 2 years. The session will highlight some of the pitfalls and user frustrations with Ajax as well as how Ajax can be used to enhance the user experience. We will present usability and accessibility issues and common user behaviours with Ajax applications.

    Finally we will discuss interaction design guidelines for developing user friendly Ajax designs. This is not a technical session and will appeal to designers, developers and anyone working with interactive websites or web applications.

  2. Closing the gap between people’s online and real life social network – Paul Adams

    From IA Summit 2010:

    In the next few years, the most successful social media experiences will be the ones that understand how our offline and online worlds connect and interact. But our tools are still crude. The good news is that despite the complexity involved in understanding human relationships, we can study offline and online communication and create design principles to support what we find. In his presentation, Paul Adams speaks about what he has learned from over two years of research into people’s online and offline relationships.

  4. Relly Annett-​​Baker — All the small things

    Microcopy is the ninja of online con tent. Fast, furi ous and deadly, it has the power to make or break your online busi ness, to kill or stay your foes. It’s a sen tence, a con fir­ma tion, a few words. One word, even. It isn’t big or flashy. It doesn’t leave a call ing card. If it does its job your cus tomer may never notice it was there.

  6. Mark Boulton — Designing grid systems

    Grid sys tems have been used in print design, archi tec ture and inte rior design for gen­er a tions. Now, on the web, the same rules of grid sys tem com po si tion and usage no longer apply. Content is viewed in many ways; from RSS feeds to email. Content is viewed on many devices; from mobile phones to lap tops. Users can manip u late the browser, they can remove con tent, resize the can vas, resize the type faces. A designer is no longer in con trol of this pre sen ta tion. So where do grid sys tems fit in to all that?
