UIO and Learner Options in the wiki

Tona,

Great points! We totally need to address all of this.

Arash, perhaps you can get some iconic thumbnails together that show the various versions of UIO. I think that means the following:
From Version A: the panel with vegetables from here: http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/User+Interface+Options+Wireframes
From Version B: the evolution of those designs: http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/User+Interface+Options+designs%2C+B.1
From Version C: 1. the top panel 2. do we want to also show the side panel? 3. the browser extension and 4. do we want to show the beginnings of the floating panel? (note: we shouldn't use these nicknames for these designs if they are only relevant to us. As Tona said "the design with an option at the top…"

We are having a lot of floating panel conversations lately in Cloud4All. We will need to make those files finable in the wiki as well…

And Tona, you're spot on with the need for a page that explains the numerous projects. I was working on an OmniGraffle file this morning to try to show it visually. I'll plunk it into the wiki as soon as I get it cleaned up! Is that what you meant?

Thanks!
Jess

We have a lot of options there, and the access to the projects (under Areas of Design) is clear for us, but maybe not so much for newcomers.

I'd love to use this page (along with the latest demo) as a place to send newcomers to learn more about our work on UI Options and its status.
