Hi all,

Sorry for the delay.  I wanted to make sure I heard back from  
everyone before scheduling a time for the meeting.  It looks like  
Friday, May 11 - 8am PDT / 10 am MDT / 11 am EDT /  4 pm (UK) will  
allow the most people to join the conversation.  We'll use the FLUID  
breeze room:  http://breeze.yorku.ca/fluidwork/.  You can sign in as  
a guest.  We've found having a headset works best for minimizing  
echos and feedback.  If you have a camera we'll plan to have the  
video working also (although we were having some trouble with it  
yesterday so we'll play it by ear).  I've found that running through  
the audio setup wizard under the "Meeting" link (top-leftish corner  
of screen) helps with the audio.  I'll arrive 15 minutes early if  
people want to join early and test it out.

Agenda:
- Introductions / interest in heuristic work
- Update from Clayton on accessibility heuristics research
- Review/thoughts on material shared so far
- Discuss heuristic checklists
- Discuss evaluation 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  
evaluator)
	- Coordinate review
	- Coordinate synthesis of findings, prioritization & recommended  
solutions
         - Coordinate/write report for communities
- Other?

found helpful.  Also, please feel free to add to the agenda (which  
I'll also post on the site).
