Sakai 2.9 Accessibility Review

Reviews in Progress

  • Scott and a Michigan student have be investing a great deal of time in the Sakai accessibility review work.  They have posted numerous review on the Sakai 2.9 Accessibility Review (2012) web page.
  • They will continue to go through the high priority tools.

Discuss Escalating Minor issues to Major

  • Due to the fact that any Jira issues marked as "Minor" many never get address, Joe proposed changing significant minor issues into Major issues.

  • Scott proposed that we change the definition of a Minor issue in our review definition to include the fact that no Jira will be submitted if an issue is marked as Minor.

  • Joe suggested the discussion be tabled until the next meeting.

Collaborative Testing

  • Joe and Scott agreed that it is still crucial for the group to collaboratively test the Tests & Quizzes tool.
  • Joe suggested the discussion of testing date be tabled until the next meeting.
  • No labels
