  • BOF: Accessibility in Apereo. Where are we at and where do we want to be?

    by Gonzalo Silverio and Neal Caidin

    This is a Birds of a Feather (BOF). The purpose is to gather together across the Apereo panoply of activities all that are interested in accessibility for a frank exchange on the subject as it affects our "products". Hope to discuss what challenges we face now, where do we want to see our offerings in terms of a11y in the future and what strategies can we pursue together towards those goals.

    Some other more specific possibilities to discuss are:

    1. pooling of resources (a11y education, development, testing, user assistance) across Apereo
    2. pursuing a11y certification from some organization

    But this is a BOF - so all subjects are open to discussion.

    At 10:00am to 10:45am, Wednesday 5th June

    In Gaslamp, The Westin San Diego

  • Directions for Standards in Teaching and Learning

    by Charles Severance

    This presentation will cover a wide range of topics around evolving standards for teaching and learning. First we will look at the well-established standard of IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) and Common Cartridge (CC) and look at the market penetration of each of the standards. Then we will look at upcoming standards form IMS like LTI 2.0 and give a sense of where they fit into the marketplace. And then looking beyond IMS, we will look at how EPUB3 may have a very significant impact in the LMS market and examine the overlap between the IMS standards and ODPF (EPUB3) standards. We will also talk about open source projects around EPUB3 and other content authoring efforts.

    At 10:00am to 10:45am, Wednesday 5th June

    In Crystal II, The Westin San Diego

  • QA testers gathering

    by Neal Caidin and Andrea Schmidt

    QA (Quality Assurance) testing is important and should be a priority, if it isn't already, for every institution using Sakai CLE, Sakai OAE, and any other Apereo project wishing to have a sustainable future and happy users in the present. By helping to test projects before your institution deploys them in production you get to have confidence that your local needs will be met by the product and create visibility on bugs and issues that are important to your institution and therefore more likely to get attention from the developer community. QA testing is one of those rare activities that throwing more people at it makes it better. It means less work per person to insure a quality product, and a greater number of eyeballs and approaches to testing. Plus, breaking things is fun! Come join in a discussion to share what works, what we can do better and how to attract more institutions and people to be committed to make QA a success.

    At 3:45pm to 4:30pm, Wednesday 5th June
