Meeting Recap


Learn WordPress Handbook

  • @camikaos hosted a sprint for the Learn WordPress Handbook last week.
  • The sprint focused on reviewing the existing Handbook drafts and adding in/making edits based on feedback.
  • For next steps, there is still a need for additional contributors to review and add any suggestions or edit to the draft Handbook pages.
    • For access to the Google doc to review and comment on the draft, please ask in the #training channel.
  • From the sprint, one item to be decided is where the Handbook should live: on the Make/Training team blog (this site) or in Learn WordPress itself.

Design UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing./UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. Review for Learn WordPress

  • Some Design team members have left feedback on the Review/Feedback Request: UX for with suggested changes and/or improvements. Those include:
    • Making changes to the text on the home page, especially to clarify workshops and lesson plans.
    • Organizing content around topics and categories for both lesson plans and workshops in a unified way.
    • Revising the home page layout to highlight calls to action/content types differently.
  • @paaljoachim shared some additional thoughts/feedback on the terminology for workshops, as well, and plans to brainstorm some thoughts around definitions.
  • As a next step, the idea is to write up a proposal/post for the team to review and discuss the text on the home page, whether to make changes, and review how that aligns with Learn WordPress’ goals and mission.
