Protocol, heuristics, process and reporting seem to be working. We'll continue to reflect and iterate as we do the walkthroughs.
- We'll continue working through the UX walkthroughs with an eye toward identifying pain points to focus component work on and delivering a "state of usability and accessibility" summary to the Sakai, uPortal and Moodle communities.
- Synthesize all walkthrough results from individual evaluators for the summaries. What should our timeline be for completing the walkthroughs?
- Paul will drive definition of the form of the above mentioned summaries
- Create summaries and share out with communities.
Pain point and Component ID and prioritization activity
Pain point synthesis and categorization identified several areas of focus. Wiki pages for these areas can be found at ?????. as child pages off the Pain Points & Problem Spaces page. Four areas were chosen to focus on and working groups formed around them:
- Navigation Problem Space (Barbara, Allison, Paul, Kathy if time permits)
- Feedback Problem Space (Eli, Kathy, Barbara if time permits)
- File Management Problem Space (Clay, Shaw-Han, Herb, Daphne)
- Workflow -- across tools Problem Space (Gary, Eli, Peter)
There was also discussion around these areas in the larger group. Initially we hoped to assign design and development effort to the areas also but we quickly realized we weren't there yet.
- Create wiki page for each problem space
- Post post-it note work and other sense making outcomes from activity on the wiki page
- Further flesh out problem space spaces and begin identifying components.
- Recruit team members as appropriate. All ; all teams likely need some development representation sooner than later.
- Component design and development - is this the same team or do we need to come back together first?
- Gary & Eric integrate Reorderer Layout Customizer in uPortal for portlet layout
- Gary & Daphne identify likely integration points in uPortal and Sakai and pick 3 - 5 to move forward
- Recruit needed team members from the respective communities (developers, project manager if project is sizable enough, etc.)
- Integrate (design & development work) - what's needed along the way? what are outstanding questions? what's the package?
NEXT STEPS: Barbara is coordinating of group of planners and organizers around this. Wiki page soon to come -- or is there already one?
NEXT STEPS: Jumping off the JA-SIG planning, we'll jump into planning this one next.
With all the great work and discussion, we ran out of time for this and decided to get a jump on it right after the Summit. Shaw-Han and Barbara have started a wiki page and will be in touch to move this discussion along with and move the Reorder component testing forward.
Kuali Student Overview
Paul gave a lightening lightning talk on where they are and what the plan foward is based on Kuali Student UI Design Notes.
Allison gave a lightening lightning presentation on design patterns. She talked about what a pattern is, who the audience for Fluid patterns might be, showed some example patterns and provided us with many thought-provoking questions. The discussion continued the next day a bit with the whole group.
This discussion will happen on-line. The idea is to utilize some agile development planning methods to help the UX folks self-manage and prioritize our work. A huge bonus to this approach is the transparency is it affords to the folks doing the work and the rest of the community.
- Daphne to coordinate conversation to review idea with team
- If people like the idea we'll just doing it and iterate as we go
Content Management Research
Daphne gave a lightening lightning presentation on the problem, goals, and plan behind this project. Much more discussion will happen virtually.
