Input: Moving Beyond Web Forms

A session at BayCHI Interaction Design BOF

A Web application can't exist without users' input. We need the data, but do we need Web forms to get it? Traditional Web forms—made up of text fields, radio buttons, check boxes, and a Submit button—have been the mainstay of Web application design. In ecommerce, social networking applications, and productivity tools, Web forms continue to define crucial Web interactions. Thankfully, new approaches for user input are now giving designers more to work with and create better user experiences.

Luke will explore several novel ways in which Web applications can collect user input, through both mobile devices and desktop software, without forcing users to complete lengthy, sequential forms. He’ll provide detailed research-based solutions that articulate not only the how, but the why, as well. You'll walk away with practical solutions you can immediately put to use.
