Hi all,

Daphne has outlined a pretty good list of the UX work we're thinking 
about and doing over the next few months.

We definitely can always benefit from more help with the UX 
walkthroughs. If Oracle has anyone who has experience with heuristic 
evaluations or cognitive walkthroughs, perhaps they would consider 
lending a hand?

User testing is another area where we could benefit from more 
collaboration. As Daphne says, the first step is to define a general 
protocol for user testing in time for September's Fluid summit. We also 
want to get started on real testing of the first round of Fluid 
components as soon as possible.

We'll also likely want to look at user testing of new and existing 
content management functionality in Sakai, Moodle, and uPortal before 
too long.

Is this something you would like to contribute to as well?

Great to have you involved,
