Timeline for responding to feedback:

  • Short focussed attempt to respond, see how far get

  • Write up what we have, where we are with things.

Next Steps:

  • Send out list of questions

  • Start to fill out criteria chart

  • Formal response to NIDRR’s feedback

Digital literacy

  • Instead of starting with the assumption that the user doesn’t know much, leads to a thorough but slow process.

  • How can turn this around? Start with the assumption that they are literate, but back-off when there is an issue.

  • Starting with an opening screen, there is likely to be help setting up this screen so it shouldn’t start trying to make inferences yet.

  • Imagining the first screen to be a language screen -- if they pause, then we think they made need digital literacy help, but what language should we give it to them?

Next steps:

  • Anastasia and Dana creating a design for how we might optimize this process

  • Creating this as google drawing


How does that tool “start”?

  • How long to wait? Measuring elapsed time requires that we start time.

  • How do we indicate that time has started.

  • Include “press any button” to begin.

    • Confirms that they are ready to respond

    • Be sure that we allow people to “click” or touch the screen, or use their mouse, depending on what they are using.

    • Hoping that the if the screen is touch-only then we the language should be limited to touching


Needs are dependent on context? Can we agree on this? -- Yes

  • ex. how they need math

  • Fundamental things: how do they enter text, how we can present, how they can respond?

  • In OER context:

  • We still need to define what it means to “get in the door” - keep focussing on the specific contexts - “getting in the door” or “engaging with ICT” will always be context dependent.

Next step:

  • Draft more use cases

  • Designer on OCAD side will be drafting more of these


We have to be able to put down everything that a person could “need”

  • No labels
