Thanks Colin,


What browsers must be supported, when, and to what degree?

Designing and Building the First Fluid Component - this section should
include a style guide definition.

Planning Heuristic Evaluations of Sakai, uPortal, and Moodle -

I see a mention of cognitive and learning but I don't see a breakdown of
targeted users and transformations which should be addressed and how these
would then be usable.

For example, for a low vison how will we address content enlargement - text
only, text and images, the entire content (through the browser).
Should we address linearization for larger fonts. For example, in the
lightbox case you have a grid. If you enlarge the content enough you end up
with scrolling. You might then want to linearize and swap the lightbox grid
with a lightbox listbox which is left justified.
We will need to address how the design patters change when the specified
transformations occur.

Hi everyone,

I've been working on a short term road map document that describes the
work we're doing over the next couple of months. Please have a look at
it and feel free to share your thoughts.


Here's a super-quick summary:
* Designing and building our first Fluid component
* Planning heuristic evaluations of Sakai, uPortal, and Moodle
* Evaluating JavaScript toolkits
* Expanding Sakai's UI design patterns
* Presenting at Conferences and U-Camp
* Incremental architecture of the Fluid framework

I'll be following this up with a longer-term view of the project in the
coming weeks. It's great to see work progressing on the project so early!

Have a great weekend,
