    2. If you have tested a lesson plan, please comment on this post with any links or information on any slides you did/did not use.
  5. Slides
    1. @courtneydawn tested one of the plans using the lesson page as the “slide” and it was hard to use what we have as is in real life. She is wondering if our  primary product should be the lp slides and the write-up might be better as “notes” and also noted that slides being used in a meet-up setting are geared towards more of a show/tell than a install, show, do process.
    2. What are people who are testing doing? Are they making their own slides, are they adding content, removing content, etc.?
    3. We want to add a question/request to the testing feedback form that says “Please share all created media from your testing session”. We can’t get files submitted through support flow, so @courtneyengle and @bethsoderberg are going to connect and experiment to try and find a process that will work this week.
  6. Location of Team Documentation
    1. @courtneyengle is going through and finding all of the random things that SHOULD be in our documentation and tagging them with the procedures tag.
    2. @linnifred has lots of expertise in organizing data and is going to go through and see if she has additional input/suggestions.
  7. Lesson Plan Accuracy
    1. @mikemueller and @judylwh have started sorting out our existing lesson plans.  They are reviewing if any content should be updated to coincide with WordPress updates.  Their initial documentation can be found here:
    2. We ran out of time while starting the discussion of this item and will pick it up again next week.
