Agenda - Accessibility/Usability of IT Coordinating Group (Coordinating Group)

May 15, 2014, 11:00-12:00, at 136 Rust Schriener *

* Note the change of location for this meeting only. You can bring your lunch. The preceeding Tools Team meeting will be in the same room.

  1. Agenda Review
  2. Notes from previous meeting  
  3. Brief updates on past action:
    • Teaching and Learning Symposium (Joyce)
      Action: All set. Joyce will check on the poster, (visit Gary's office where it is stored.) We might need an additional handout, but the brochure is probably enough. We have lots of brochures.
    • Assessment of content management templates (Joyce or Todd)
      Action: Joyce will finish them up.
    • Tools Team (Gary)
      • Team is evaluating OAA Firefox extension, FAE 2.0, and FAE Auditor
      • Deadline for evaluations is middle of June
      • Team needs chairperson(s). Gary will ask if two members are willing to serve as co-chairs. The charter says that the chair should meet with the sponsors monthly to identify and address barriers. Judy (the former chair) was doing this as part of her regular meetings with Bruce. After we have co-chairs, we'll request a meeting of the chairs with Bruce, but expect that he will delegate this to someone else. At that point we will know who to go to and the chairs can meet regularly with Bruce's representative to discuss implementation barriers.
  4. Check in
  5. Liaison Reports:
    • CIC (Carrie)
      FYI: Jon Gunderson's group is called the "Open Web Accessibility Alliance"
      Carrie is chair of the CIC Web Accessibility Group
    • Unizin (Carrie)
    • Online Course Production and Delivery Committee (Todd)
    • eText (Carrie)
  6. Report to the sponsors
    Handouts: Questions:
    • At a high level, what are our greatest needs, as a team, or as a campus, that the sponsors might be able to address?
    • Subcommiteee to follow up?
    • MTAG, AAIC and ITC are mentioned in the Coordinating Group charter. Question is, how do we coordinate with them?
      • MTAG is the CIO's advisorty group, so we would work through the CIO office.
      • ITC is the CIO/DoIT's shared governance advisory committee, so we would work through the CIO office for that as well.
      • We need to check on the status of AAIC.
    • A sub-committee of Todd, Joyce and Gary will work on a draft report. Joyce has some notes as a starting point.
  7. FAE 2.0 site crawling demo
    Action: Deferred.
  8. Future agenda items
