Goals and Expectations

This is a working meeting, etc.

Planned Agenda

User Experience

1. UX Walk-throughs
By August, we intend to have completed a first round of user interface walk-throughs of at least Sakai and perhaps uPortal. The August summit will give us an opportunity to review the material gathered, refine our protocol and reporting process, and prioritize the issues collected to date.

2. Component Design Process
As we look towards designing new Fluid UI components, we need to plan a basic process and set of criteria for designing them in a fully usable and accessible way. We'll review Daphne Ogle's proposal for this process, and then share our recommendations for how best to design Fluid components.

3. User Testing
As components like the Lightbox begin to mature, we need to ensure that our work is regularly tested for usability and accessibility by real users. Shaw-Han Liem will present his test plan for the Lightbox, and Mike Elledge and Daphne Ogle will present a proposal for long-term user testing strategies within Fluid.

4. Review UX Deliverables and Create a UX Release Plan
The community needs a stated release deliverables for the Designer's Toolkit and other user experience activities. The group will review our stated project deliverables, prioritize them, and draft a UX release plan for review by the Fluid community at large.
