It's vital that this group enables full participation, and it goes without saying that we don't want to exclude participation on grounds of disability, or geographical location or any other factor we can reasonably address.

Providing detailed minutes from the teleconference is our first effort at letting people who weren't present know what happened and what decisions were made. One additional channel we could use in the future to support teleconferences is IRC, as is used by W3C working groups I've been involved in.

>>>>>
>>>>> 1.2 Notes

>>>>> * Working as a community group, more informal than W3C group, we

>>>>> * Survey: Over 70 responses, posting summaries to public CG list.
>>>>> Results confirmed views of why we should have a community group,

>>>>> to producing accessible online experiences.
>>>>> * David Berman: Is the survey still open? [Yes, will share the link
>>>>> with the minutes.] Research for School of Public Service in Canada,

>>>>>
>>>>> 2. Aims:
>>>>>
>>>>> 2.1 Agenda description
>>>>>
>>>>> Based on the survey, here are some areas we could focus on:
>>>>>
>>>>> * What additional resources are needed to help people use existing
>>>>> WAI guidelines to create accessible online learning resources? The
>>>>> survey indicated lack of knowledge amongst content creators was the
>>>>> biggest challenge to accessible online
>>>>> * What can W3C do to create connections between WAI guidelines and
>>>>> non-W3C standards that could help promote accessible online
>>>>> learning? Other standards exist, particularly those from IMS, and
>>>>> there are also CAST's UDL guidelines. Do we need to work to build
>>>>> bridges between these and WCAG?
>>>>> * What areas do we have to define are out of scope for a W3C WG,
>>>>> even if they are considered important for accessible online
>>>>> learning, but may require focus separately, e.g., tools for online
>>>>> video accessibility, legislation and education accessibility?
>>>>> * What wheels do we need to avoid reinventing?
>>>>>
>>>>> 2.2 Notes
>>>>>
>>>>> * Intention to exchange information to understand how existing
>>>>> resources help/hinder creation of accessible online learning.
>>>>> * Gap analysis could be a general focus of the group.
>>>>> * Has been lots of work underway outside of W3C. How best do we
>>>>> reconcile this work with the W3C work?
>>>>> * David Berman: With course materials, went through A and AA,
>>>>> attempted to match up with popular elearning authoring tools and
>>>>> conference platforms.
>>>>> Possible goal to consider WCAG2 Accessible Online Learning document.
>>>>> * Simon Ball: Did assignment  to look at institutions, looks at
>>>>> existing guidelines, identify gaps, asked educators what do they
>>>>> have to do to these resources to make them useful for their
>>>>> teaching. Replied that they need to mash existing guidelines with
>>>>> teaching principles and institutional elearning strategies.
>>>>> * Ted Gies: Producer of online learning systems, one challenge is
>>>>> that there are repeatable design patterns (consuming content,
>>>>> evaluating learning), is there a usable and accessible solution?
>>>>> Are there proven design patterns?
>>>>> Are there personas? Would like guidance on finite set of elearning
>>>>> design patterns.
>>>>> * Madeline Rothberg: Co-Chair of IMS guidelines, looking to update
>>>>> the guidelines. Leadership coming from online learning industry
>>>>> (publishers, learning software vendors-vendors who want to make
>>>>> products more accessible). Will be seeking to coordinate efforts,
>>>>> encourage people to join group and help shape guidelines. IMS and

>>>>> * Todd Weissenberger: CIC workgroup composed of CIOs to further

>>>>> teaching/learning and accessibility.
>>>>> * Sushil Oswal: Suggestion to compile list of activities people are

>>>>> * Armony Altinier: How we learn is influenced by language, would be

>>>>>
>>>>> 2.3 Proposed activities:
>>>>>
>>>>> * Define scope of effort/attention of CG
>>>>>     * e.g., authoring tools, conferencing platforms
>>>>> * Inventory existing resources
>>>>>     * Existing resources including and beyond W3C (to avoid
>>>>> reinventing
>>>>> wheels)
>>>>>     * Institutional standards (e.g., Open University in UK has
>>>>> guidelines)
>>>>> * Identify pattern libraries
>>>>>     *Are there usable and accessible pattern libraries to support
>>>>> * Inventory/coordinate with other efforts
>>>>>     * Coordinate with IMS guidelines activities
>>>>>     *CIC workgroup
>>>>> * Identify exemplars
>>>>>     *Best practice examples to spotlight where people are doing
>>>>> things right
>>>>> * Issue survey in other languages
>>>>>     * Widen view of what can be done to make improvements in online
>>>>> learning
>>>>>
>>>>> 3. Logistics:
>>>>>
>>>>> 3.1 Agenda description
>>>>>
>>>>> * How do we define a work plan?
>>>>> * How will the group organise its work, given its current
>>>>> constraints (discussion but no publication)?
>>>>> * What tools should the group use to help it do its work?
>>>>> * How will it work with other W3C groups?
>>>>> * Scheduling, reporting, communication.
>>>>>
