Accreditation of Websites Debrief

shadi: it was a very good discussion and well prepared...
... very sensitive topic with many views and perspectives

viv: I appreciate that a lot of people joined last week
... I think that it was worth pursuing as a discussion
... further questions to be answered were expressed and we need to look further into them with a lot of interesting ideas...

sharp: do you think we should follow with a session with invited speakers as well or not?

viv: we might need that....

sharp: maybe we can have a poll about that and decide if we need to have symposium or another discussion...

shadi: we need to think if we want to do in depth or beadth...?

sharp: this could also be asked in the survey...

viv: I think we should keep on with similar sessions... we had good feedback

justin: we have about 4-5 topics for the call...
... silvia is working mainly on the background...
... I 'd like to know what people think about the topics...

viv: an interesting questions is how current e-learning systems are doing with accessibility and WCAG...

justin: I know we try to be relative agnostic in terms of products... is it ok if I mention some providers...?

sharp: I don't think there is a big problem because we already mentioned OS's like iOS or Android in the past

shadi: congrats on the material...
... there is no problem naming provider ... just make sure that ti is within examples...and mention more than one...

justin: we wanted for exmaple to mention moodle and blackboard... and how they give instructions on producing accessible content
... but they still have some problems on their systems...

shadi: description that are objective are ok and avoid subjective expressions...

justin: not very far... but we are working on the main page first and then work on the rest

... I think we can move on that quickly and we'll be able to announce it within the next 2 weeks

justin: yes...

sharp: is there anything else we need from w3C's part?

shadi: we need an approval of the subject and we need to have the group look at the calls and the main topic page...
