Teleconference Details

Date: 2007-10-19

Time: 2:00 PM EDT; 1:00 PM CDT; 12:00 PM MDT; 11:00 AM PDT


  1. Report on status of tester pool. OSU has gotten an IRB exemption and Ken and Joe hope to report that they have gathered a good pool of users for testing student interfaces on D2L 8.2.
  2. Finalize the usability testing task list that Janna began and Hadi contributed to. The last agenda mentioned trimming some scenarios.
  3. Discuss how testing should proceed. For example, how will tests be recorded. What is the current status of D2L's licensing with TechSmith UserVue? Will we be able to use Morae and Adobe Connect to facilitate testing for users who rely on assistive technologies for access if UserVue is unavailable? Here at the WAC we have a copy of Morae and could use it locally for testing, but what about at other campuses or on user's systems. AT users will likely want to test on their own machines.
