UIEtips: Q&A with UX Experts on Usability and Prototyping

Jared Spool

May 6th, 2010

The world of user experience design is made up of many disciplines. On the list, there is information architecture, usability testing, visual design, interactive design, copywriting, and prototyping (and this is just a sample of the list). At a minimum you need an understanding of the principles of these disciplines and often you need to be proficient at them.

A little over 3 years ago, we started producing 90 minute online seminars. We call them the UIE Virtual Seminars (or webinars). These seminars give you the chance to hear the latest perspectives in the world of design from the field’s premiere experts.

During the live virtual seminars, we receive many questions. It’s rare that we have enough time to tackle these questions. So to address the unanswered questions from the seminar, we record Q&A podcasts with the presenters.

These podcasts are a wealth of information. It’s like a little secret only a few know about. But we want the world to hear the podcasts. And the beauty of these podcasts is that you don’t need to attend the virtual seminar to follow them. So we thought we’d occasionally feature them in our newsletter.

In today’s UIEtips, we focus on two podcasts. One is with Beth Loring on Effective Moderating for Usability Testing. The other is with Fred Beecher on The Whys, Whats, and Hows of Prototyping. Like all our podcasts, they’re available on our web site and on iTunes (and they are free).

Enjoy these podcasts and let us know what you think below.

    Good article,

    I have recently tried an prototyping tool done in HTML5 in cloud called and it is very good, easy to use, fast, and has super sharing possibilities and functionality to show the client or team, and be able easy to comment. It supports drag and drop from desktop due to HTML5 and it has all elements in vector graphics, and ability to import new icons and other elements. I used Balsamiq before, but Ninja tool is way better and easy to work with, and has great exporting possibility, and some other collaboration and project control stuff, at least for me it was perfect. You should check it out


    It is fast free and for what I was doing it was just perfect.
