UIO and Learner Options in the wiki

Hi all,

As Joanna mentioned, we have uploaded the latest design explorations to UI Options C.1 design explorations<http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/User+Interface+Options+design+explorations,+C.1>. We had some issues with the pdfs being uploaded as a slide show. So I have made the first uploaded explorations on the page into thumbnails with a downloadable link. This way, we would have an extra step, but will get rid of the problem with scrolling and pdf rendering. Also the thumbnails would represent the highlights of the exploration, and by clicking on the link, the user would see more details of the thought process.

Please let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.

Hi all,

I've compiled all the UI Options C.1 design explorations<http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/User+Interface+Options+design+explorations,+C.1> and linked them from the main UI Options page<http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/User+Interface+Options>. I think having them all on one page in reverse-chronological order would be the simplest to update and link them from the main UIO page. But, how does everyone feel about the length of the page? The other thing I was hesitant about is adding a pdf preview because of the way it renders the files  (but otherwise there would be no visual reference to the download link).
Also, Arash and I had a conversation about the UI Options Design page<http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/UIO+Design> and the content on it. I was suggesting this page acts as a table of contents to all the design content. For me, it feels like an extra step to enter the Version A, B. or C pages to access the designs. We were thinking that individual design pages could link from the main design page beside the thumbnails that also links to the appropriate page.  What does everyone think?

Great point! We were eyeing that beefy introduction which we were thinking of simplifying.

Wrt the demo, do you mean the implementation on the IDI site or do you mean this one with the added audio+video tab?

It's a good question. I was originally thinking of the UI Options page in the demo portal, which shows the different flavours of UI Options:


But I realize that UI Options is really best appreciated when you can see it integrated into different contexts. Perhaps we could have a little "Showcase" sidebar or section that provides links to UI Options in various places?

Or maybe others have better ideas for how to showcase UI Options in all its diversity?

Any worries about linking to build? We do not currently
1. list the video player demo on this page: http://build.fluidproject.org/

This is something I noticed a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps someone working on Video Player development could quickly link our daily builds and demos on build.fluidproject.org<http://build.fluidproject.org>? AC, King, Fish, Heidi?
