Increased Participation

  • Neil Caidin, Community manager for Sakai CLE, attended the call this week.
  • He was hoping to sit in on the group meeting to get a feel for how the AWG conducts its bi-weekly meetings.
  • Neil also wanted to express his personal support for pushing accessibility as a high priority topic in the Sakai community.
  • He will be reaching out to the Sakai TCC to both help increase involvement in the AWG and to try and find volunteers to take over as lead of the AWG
  • Neil will try to send or bring a list of the Universities who are actively developing Sakai to the next AWG meeting so that the AWG may personally reach out to accessibility experts on those campus and invite them to participant
