To: "EOWG (E-mail)" <w3c-wai-eo@w3.org>

Please read this e-mail and prepare replies for this week's EOWG teleconference. Feel free to send comments in e-mail.

Training Overview page: http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/
Training review survey: http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35532/waitraining2b/

Most of the comments in the review survey were editorial. Some of the edits were already incorporated in the 20 August version that most people reviewed. The following comments and edits are for EOWG consideration:

1. Some people suggested that the Presentations and Workshop material was hard to read and seemed congested, partly because of all the links throughout the content bullets. To address this we've unlinked a lot of the text and removed some of the bracketed material. This means readers will need to get the previously linked information from the Topics page, instead of getting it from the outlines pages.

Question: Do these edits take care of the congestion?

2. In the Workshop material, many of the links went to the WCAG 2.0 Understanding or Techniques document. We moved the links from throughout the content bullets to a new section called "Understanding WCAG 2.0" Resources (or "Understanding WCAG 2.0" and "Techniques for WCAG 2.0" Resources).

Question: OK?

3. For the Workshop page, there was a suggestion to clarify who might do the training, adjusting the content and examples to suit the audience, etc.

Note that we had previously agreed not to include general presentation and training guidance in this update of the resource.
Some additional guidance has been added to the "Important Notes" section: http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/workshop-outlines.html#notes

Question: Does this section now adequately clarify that experience is needed to present the material and that the workshop should be customized for the audience, without going into too much detail?

4. Linking to draft slides.

Question: Is OK to go ahead and add pointers to the following draft slides, or should we wait until they are more done?
* [DRAFT] Instructions for the "Web Accessibility is Smart Business" Presentation http://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/bcase/
* [DRAFT] Instructions for the "Using WCAG 2" Presentation http://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/WCAG2_using/

5. Any objections to publishing this version as a Draft for public review?
