User Experience Design Open Content Search
Were you able to find what you needed?
Yes, for the most part. Wikipedia is an awesome resource.
Were there good repositories or sources of content that were particularly valuable?
There were, from a simple google search it seemed like there a lot of open content on UX Design was found on blogs. I would have to spend more time verifying their veracity than if it was from a trusted or known source or organization.
How about any that were hard to use?
Did not experience anything that was hard to use.
Was it easy to tell whether or not things were open, and what the license was?
I had trouble finding the liscence information for one article from Smashing Magazine that I wanted to use orginally, so I assumed it was not open.
How might you use the stuff that you found? Is it sufficient for teaching someone about the topic you've chosen? What's missing and how might you fill the gaps?
I think I would create a PowerPoint prentation using the diagram and wikipedia text to walk people through the different elements of UXD. I think it would be sufficient for an overview of what UXD is. Potentially I could design an exercise to demonstrate some of the methods better.
