Education Campaign - Re: EOWG: Agenda for 17 November 2006 Teleconference

** High Priority **

If EOWG is looking to reach out to educators, it may be worth contacting the Web Standards Project's (WaSP) Educational Task Force.  They work  to promote Web standards (including Web accessibility) within higher-ed.  It is a really good group of folks. 

They have a pretty world-wide email discussion list with educators and univ. developers from all over.

I would be more then happy to be a contact point between EOWG and them if that would help.

Cheers,

Dear EOWG Participants:

An agenda and calling logistics for our 17 November 2006 teleconference follow.

Time:    8:30am - 10:30am U.S. Eastern Time. For other time zones see:
	       http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html
Bridge:  +1.617.761.6200, code: EOWG# (3694#)
IRC:     Channel: #eo, server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665
Scribe:  See http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2003/scribes.html

Agenda:

1. Disseminating existing resources & outreach campaigns

- What key documents do we want to disseminate in the upcoming weeks (before the next WCAG 2.0 release)?
- What key audiences do we want to reach in the upcoming weeks (before the next WCAG 2.0 release)?
- Discuss an early concept draft and open issues:

* [EARLY IDEAS] Promotional Campaign to Web Development Course Instructors
  http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/promos/courses.php

- Does the brief requirements analysis capture what is most needed, and can be delivered yet this year?
- What are promotion venues, e.g., e-mailing lists? newsletters? blogs? conference handouts? other? (Let's have some brief group discussion, and then ask for off-line followup.)
- Generally how is the approach for the start of an e-mail, under "Announcements"? What else should we include? What points   will peak the interest of instructors?
- Generally, how is the [Including Web Accessibility in Courses] Content list? Should be add or remove items? How should it be focused?

Regards,
~ Shawn & Judy

IRC reminders and tips:
- IRC is supplemental to the call. Some participants do not have IRC. All 
substantive comments should be said verbally in the call (not just in IRC).
- to type a side comment that will _not_ get recorded in the minutes, type 
/me comment - e.g.:
/me hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
will come out:
*shawn hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
