Hi EOWG folks,

You may be interested in the new W3C Community Group (CG) on Accessible Online Learning.

The main page for the group is: <https://www.w3.org/community/accesslearn/>
 From there you can join the group and learn more about it.

Below is telecon info for Wednesday 12 August. (To clarify: This is not an EOWG meeting.)

It would be good to have some EOWG participants active in this Accessible Online Learning CG to help coordinate related efforts.

Hello, AccessLearn members! Looking forward to our kickoff call tomorrow at 10:00 ET.

Here is the call-in information:

Toll: 1-719-359-9722
Toll-free: 1-888-757-2790
Pin number: 876793

And here is the agenda:

1. Background: Brief description of W3C Community Groups and the creation of the AccessLearn CG. Other W3C accessibility efforts (e.g. the WCAG WG, EO WG).

2. Aims: 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 learning, and limitations of learning platforms was another major challenge.
   * 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?

3. Logistics:

   * 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.

4. Next steps:

   * Timing and format of future meetings

Talk soon!
