Hi Jon,
I think this looks great, and I like the consistency with Infusion Docs a lot. I’m curious to know what some of the accessibility issues were that you mentioned you had discussed with Heidi.

Hi everyone,

For a while now there's been a desire to move the Inclusive Learning Design Handbook<>
(or ILDH) from MediaWiki to a static site. Security, administration, ease of customization, and simplifying content creation are the major reasons for doing this.

I am proposing that the new static site for the ILDH be a reskin of the current Infusion Docs site<> which is done using Docpad and hosted on Github pages. Attached to this email is a PDF mockup of the new ILDH site as a re-skinned Infusion Docs site.

Since the Infusion docs and ILDH will use a common code base, we should probably refactor the common parts to make it easier to maintain and easier to make derivative docpad sites.

The shared components are:

  *   build scripts for Docpad (docpad.js file)
  *   content templates and fonts
  *   structure for content and site navigation
  *   UI Options

Each doc site will have the following customizations:

  *   site specific markdown files and images
  *   CSS files
  *   modified docpad.js file specific for the site

To summarize the proposals:

  1.  move the ILDH to docpad with a new design (see attached PDF).
  2.  refactor the existing Infusion Docs docpad project to make it easier to make derivative sites.

I'd like people's input on these two proposals. We would like to begin work on this next week (week of June 15) with completion in early July.


- Jon.
