Hi everyone,

As you have probably heard, the Fluid project is working on a series of 
heuristic evaluations of uPortal, Sakai, and Moodle. We're looking for 
volunteers who are interested in helping out with the accessibility side 
of these evaluations. This includes helping to define the accessibility 
protocols, mentoring others on accessibility practices, and helping to 
actually review the software applications.

Heuristic evaluations are an easy and low-cost way to assess the user 
interface of an application, identifying usability and accessibility 
problems based on recognized principles or heuristics.

You can find out more about heuristic evaluations in the Fluid wiki:


We've got a great group of accessibility experts--coordinated by Mike 
Elledge at MSU--who can help with training and advice if you're 
interested in getting involved but need a bit of guidance in the process.

Please let me know if you're interested in helping out,


Colin Clark
Technical Lead, Fluid Project
