Hi all,

I'm hoping to schedule a Breeze meeting soon to begin talking about  
Heuristic review protocols, format, evaluators, etc.  I heard back  
from a few people about their interest in this work and it looks like  
this Friday works OK.  Here are a few times that might work given our  
varied time zones.  If you are planning to attend this meeting,  
please respond with your preferred meeting time (or suggest a new  
one) by end of day Wednesday.  Also, please add any agenda items to  
the suggested list below.

Friday, May 11 - 8am PDT / 10 am MDT / 11 am EDT /  4 pm (UK)
Friday, May 11 - 9am PDT / 11 am MDT / 12 pm EDT /  5 pm (UK)
Friday, May 11 - 10am PDT / 12 pm MDT / 1 pm EDT /  6 pm (UK)

Monday, May 14 - 8am PDT / 10 am MDT / 11 pm EDT /  4 pm (UK)
Monday, May 14 - 9am PDT /  11 am MDT / 12 pm EDT /  5 pm (UK)
Monday, May 14 - 10am PDT / 12 pm MDT / 1 pm EDT /  6 pm (UK)

I'll put together a straw man protocol, heuristic list and evaluation  
format based on materials that have been shared so far and send out  
prior to the meeting.  Below is the start of an agenda.  Please add  
as you will.

Suggested Meeting Agenda:

- Introductions / interest in heuristic work
- Update from Clayton on accessibility heuristics research
- Review/thoughts on material shared so far
- Discuss heuristic protocol / format (straw man)
- Need volunteer evaluators
	- same evaluator for usability and accessibility?
- Identify leads for Sakai, Moodle, uPortal heuristics (some thoughts  
on responsibilities):
	- Coordinate / create activity list for each project
	- Split evaluation into reasonable chunks (2 - 3 hours for each  
	- Coordinate review
	- Coordinate synthesis of findings, prioritization & recommended  
         - Coordinate/write report for communities
- Other?

Previously sent out links to reference material:

Nielsen's reference page on usability heuristics - http://
Accessibility heuristics references (see Clayton's email 5/7/07) -

Looking forward to moving this forward together...
