9 experiences for 2009

Adaptive Path

Take Flickr for example, a photo sharing service that successfully emerged in 2004 not just because of good design, technology, and leadership, but because of the coincidental mass adoption of camera phones and affordable high-quality digital cameras. To change consumer behaviors we must design motivational experiences that push, pull, and ease the pathway to adopting new habits.

LearnTrends 2009

Nancy White

I’ll again be on the team of “sharers&# for the LearnTrends 2009 online event hosted by Tony Karrer, Jay Cross and George Siemens.

Innovation Awards 2009

Tony Karrer

We’ve just announced the innovation awards associated with LearnTrends 2009. The Learnosity system is designed for speaking, listening and learning via a mobile phone. Based on the results of the placement test, students are offered a language course designed to meet their goals. The session was fraught with technical difficulties, so I thought it would be worth capturing a bit about each of the four award winners here.

Three Mobile User Experience Trends to Watch in 2009

Adaptive Path

What are the trends to watch in 2009? Design decisions were largely based on product design; user interface was an afterthought. Whether the cleverness of parallax sliding on of the Android G1 UI, the whimsical transitions of the HTC Diamond, or the “gosh that’s cool” response to applications like Koi Pond and Urban Spoon , these interfaces introduced UI design that was clever, creative and intuitive. 2009 will be the year inspired mobile UI design goes mainstream.

Designing a Smart Healthcare System

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

If we do, I want to know who designed it. So, rather than focusing on fixing a non-existent health care system, we need to take a step back, take a breath, reset, reboot, and begin to design the system of the future. Dr. Cortese then proceeded to lay out the framework for designing an effective healthcare system, which he illustrated with this slide. First of all, a well designed healthcare system must be focused on the patient.

I was reminded of a story told many years ago on a listserve, where both new and experienced (10 years) graduates of several ID programs were asked to design projects. It’s no guarantee of a good design. We ensure an adequate analysis of need (cf HPT ), appropriate attention to design and development, care about the implementation, and ensure evaluation.

Transformative Experience Design
