What is the Fluid Project?
- Fluid is an open, collaborative project to improve the user experience of community source software.*
Fluid includes members of the Sakai, uPortal, and Moodle communities who are working together to address the precarious values of usability, accessibility, internationalization, and more within academic software projects.
Our goal is to help improve the user experience of community source web applications including Sakai, uPortal, Kuali Student and Moodle. Fluid combines both design and technology to create a living library of sharable user interface components that can be reused across community source projects. These components are built specifically to support flexibility and customization while maintaining a high standard of usability, accessibility, internationalization, and security.
In order to encourage user-centered design within community source software, Fluid is also creating a designer's toolkit that offers useful design, accessibility, and usability strategies and documentation.
