  • Beyond Putting Lipstick on the Pig

    by Francesca Socolick

    At its core, usability practices are implemented to gain a better understanding of a user's behaviors, rather than preferences, within an application. This presentation will focus on what user experience is, some easy low-cost methods to gather and analyze data, and how solid UX practices make for good design. Participants will see a glimpse of data gathered during research, wireframes, and the reasoning behind NYU's decisions behind skin and user interface updates/changes within Sakai CLE 2.8. After this session, attendees will have a better understanding of how engaging their users may lead to better and more meaningful design choices for their institutions.

    This presentation is for anyone who supports an open source platform within his or her institution and would like to have a better understanding of how an application is used in terms of providing 1) better documentation 2) better training 3) better redesigns.

    At 9:00am to 9:45am, Wednesday 5th June

  • 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

    Find out what the Sakai CLE team has been up to over the past year. We will cover changes to the release process (especially around the 2.9 release), technical improvements, areas of focus for the team, and some fun JIRA stats. We especially welcome anyone interested in joining and contributing to the CLE team (including QA, Documentors, Developers, SVN admins, JIRA review, etc.)

  • 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
