Two ideas:

 Sakai AccessibilityMatt Clare
  • Previous versions of Sakai have been audited, meeting WCAG2 is important for users sake and for market competitiveness' sake
  • There are no plans for a full audit of Sakai and a big chunk of accessibility resources are no longer part of project

Action items


  1. I'm planning to hold a Sakai Tech Documentation BOF on Tuesday, June 3. Would like a few minutes to report back on the results, potentially get feedback and support.

  2. With Indiana leaving the community, we have a need for Accessibility expertise and participation. 

  3. Should we be thinking about an "app store" for LTI that works with Sakai? 

  4. Perhaps some time to review results of surveys and SQL data gathered? I should have this available in at least a rough form with the raw comments from community members.

  5. I am going to plan to attend the Wednesday afternoon meeting unless something unexpected comes up.  My primary interest is just learning but I'd like to try and talk a little about the Lesson Enhancement Project which I'm hoping will launch soon and some future strategy planning.  Hope that's OK.

  6. p.s. I can't seem to edit this page so I wasn't able to add myself to the list of attendees.  FYI

    1. You should be able to edit the page now.

  7. Hi all,

    I'd like to attend on Wednesday June 4 meeting and add Sakai's accessibility status (or lack there of) to the agenda.

    Are we growing the current agenda or generating a separate list?

  8. To be clear on the tech doc stuff, I see it as 3 sections:

    1) overviews and explanation of the product and components, not necessarily hugely technical, but to "position" the technologies in someone's understanding

    2) Simpler, more hand held (i.e. nothing but reasonable assumptions made), "guaranteed to work" strands of documentation for source install and dev environment setup

    3) Some form of Q&A environment where community experiences involving the technologies can be encapsulated, so you don't necessarily "have" to attend conferences to share your journey through small or large technical problems.

    1. Thanks Andrew. Nice articulation of the needs.
