Agenda for August 16 Meeting:

Questions for Clay or Updates:

  • Clay has been doing some clean-up of the minispecs; hasn't received as much feedback as he'd like.  Would like to get some early feedback.
  • Phased approach to implementation.   Minispec for group creation has probably received the most attention, but it's also more abstract than some of the others.
  • Clay would welcome comments (in the confluence pages).  
  • Three dfferent audiences:
  • Design team
  • The User Reference Group - functional ownership of the Sakai 3 project
  • The wider community - where the project is going, how it will be implemented, and why?
  • Josh: how might we apply the lenses to the minispec; Josh thought it might be useful to try this with content authoring to think beyond Q1 or year 1 toward a more complete vision of content authoring.
  • Clay - yes, this sounds more like a manifesto
  • Ann: what is the next after the minispec; wireframes or storyboards
  • There is a design process and evcentually the minispec will preceed design work; initially, the minispecs are trying to capture some design work that has already taken place.
  • Personas:  Not complete, but have been applied where appropriate.  We hope to develop additonal personas for other areas, for example research.
  • Format suggestions are always helpful
  • Focus on describing the problem or the user needs rather than the solution.  
  • For the existing mini-specs, provide feedback by adding comments in Confluence rather than editing the text of the mini-specs.  Or child page.
  • Clay: each mini-spec calls for close attention; we may only get through one.  We'll start with the Page authoring.  

Updates from Sakai 3 Steering Committee/Team
