Request for Testing: Slides Plugin

The Training team is on the lookout for simplified way to create slides. We need:

  • An interface similar to writing a WordPress Post
  • A centralized location to access slides
  • Means to audit and revise slide content as WordPress coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. updates
  • Consideration for accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) and translation
  • Means to download or use the slides without internet connectivity

We have historically tried tools like Google Slides and Shower.js (similar to storing Reveal.js slides in GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/). We found some of these options worked, but still were a barrier for new contributors to use.

Use Case:

During State of the WordState of the Word This is the annual report given by Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress at WordCamp US. It looks at what we’ve done, what we’re doing, and the future of WordPress. https://wordpress.tv/tag/state-of-the-word/. 2019, Matt’s presentation used a blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. editor pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website.

These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party to create the slides, with quite a crew of folks that helped build the plugin and his presentation.

Get Slides Plugin:

You can find the Slides and Presentations plugin on Plugins:

Benefits

This Slides plugin looks especially interesting because it would offer us :

  • Using slides in the WordPress editor experience
  • A centralized location for auditing and empowering to update later as the revision tools become available on Learn
  • Options to download the slides
  • Templating for design, accessibility, and good 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.
  • No pre-required skills with GitHub to create or present the slides

Testing and Feedback

  • Install the plugin
  • Create a simple slide presentation
    • Add additional slides
    • Add media
    • Use the speaker notes
  • Save the slides
  • Display in browser
    • Does your theme conflict with slides displaying? (having the plugin on Learn would use the Learn theme – possibly with custom styles for that post type, solving any theme conflicts)
  • Export the slides

Learn WordPress Working Group – Call for Handbook Volunteers

Whether you’re a first-time blogger or a seasoned developer, there’s always more to learn.

That’s how start the Learn WordPress site which encourages visitors to take a workshop and learn, or use a lesson plan to share WordPress with others. The one huge thing we’re missing on the Learn siteLearn site The Training Team publishes its completed lesson plans at https://learn.wordpress.org/ which is often referred to as the "Learn" site. is the documentation to help people who want to share WordPress with others create the very video workshops we’re sharing. It’s time to fix that with a brand new handbook!

Some documentation was written up as we built the workshop portion of Learn but it’s incomplete and unpublished. I’d like to change that by the end of February 2021 by publishing a handbook for contributing to Learn by creating workshops, leading discussion groups, and vetting workshop applications. 

Since this is a relatively new way to contribute we’ve been making it up as we go along, but now it’s time to get these processes out of our minds and onto the screen.

I’ve put together an outline for the handbook and with the help of @evarlese and Hari Shanker we’ve fleshed out quite a bit of content. But there is still more to add and there is the whole thing to review. 

If you’d like an advance look at the existing documentation, you can view the read only document here. Edit access will be given to contributors next week.

This coming Monday, February 1 at 9:00am PST I’ll host a discussion in the #training channel of WordPress SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. to discuss next steps and answer questions for volunteers. If you’re interested in contributing by helping to build this handbook please join me then. If you’re not available at that time feel free to comment here to show interest or ask questions or pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM).

Lowering Barriers to Entry for Workshops on Learn

You may be asking yourself: “What is she talking about? Workshop content on Learn is free!”
Unfortunately time and high data costs can be exclusionary.

Quick Case Study: How to Find Help With WordPress

Challenges:

Length

This video is 31 minutes in length.

While this may sound reasonable for an introductory video, this should use approximately 160 MB of data.

At an Out-of-Bundle rate, this is approximately 2.5 x minimum wage for domestic workers in a developing economy – and therefore inaccessible by and exclusionary to many users.

Quality

Videos on Learn only offer the ability to turn on High Definition.

There is no option to set the video to a lower quality setting for streaming.

This is an inherent limitation of VideoPress.

Speed

Videos on Learn can only be watched at 0.5, 1, 1.5. and 2 speed.

These speeds tend to be unnatural.

Unfortunately, VideoPress does not currently offer 0.75 and 1.25 speeds, which are more natural.

Proposed Solutions:

Content Guidelines

Instructional videos should be scripted.

Discussion videos (panel discussions) on more complex topics can be very valuable content on Learn.

However, particularly for introductory topics, scripting topics heavily avoids repetition and should help to keep video lengths efficient.

If a contributor would like to submit an unscripted workshop, they should include a compelling motivation in the application why this best serves the interests of Learn users.

Lesson Plans should be submitted for all Workshops.

To ensure that Workshops benefit from input regarding curriculum development and best practices in terms of teaching philosophy, this proposes that a Lesson Plan (in outline form) should exist before workshops are recorded.

This will also facilitate the harmonization of Workshops and Lesson Plans into Courses at a later date.

Chapters

Workshops should be broken down into chapters, with descriptive titles.

Long-format videos are not conducive to meeting the needs of students in particular, as the information contained in workshops is not searchable.

Video is not an ideal format if you would like to review information again at a later date.

This proposes that a “Chapters” widgetWidget A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function. You can add these widgets in sidebars also known as widget-ready areas on your web page. WordPress widgets were originally created to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user. is added to workshops on Learn, with time-stamped links.

Subtitles

Subtitles should be submitted at the same time as the Workshop.

Users should not have to watch the video to get access to subtitles.

Subtitles should be viewable on Learn itself (possibly as a custom blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.) and should be downloadable.

Subtitles (in the original language) should be required for all scripted videos on Learn.

Subtitles for unscripted videos like panel discussions should be uploaded as soon as practical.

Browser-side Caching

Carefully consider caching behaviours on Learn.

Content on Learn should not change often and the caching periods should be as long as possible, unless a user manually clears their browser cache.

If possible, use version cache busting.

Buffering

Investigate whether the buffering is sufficient for users on slower internet connections.

Download Option

Make it possible for users to download videos directly from Learn.

This is particularly desirable in educational settings, where multiple users may share devices / a copy can be placed on a central network for everyone’s offline viewing.

Licensing

In order to facilitate downloading, sharing and to encourage proper academic habits in relation to citations, prominently include licensing information on the Learn website and preferably in the videos themselves.

Feedback:

We need your input and engagement in order to realize the goals set out above.

Agenda for the meeting.


Attendance: @courane01 @azhiyadev @webtechpooja @erica @onealtr @chaion07 @ashiquzzaman @ashiquzzaman @mukesh27 @rastaban @Carike @paaljoachim @webcommsat @nalininonstopnewsuk @meher @oglekler @lmurillom

Upcoming team meetings

Meeting Recap

  1. Sprint kickoff – The training team wants to run this on a monthly basis and pick up a few items to focus on in the month of February. The following topics were picked based on discussion and the team needed help with –
    1. Lesson plans for WP 5.7
      1. Using blocks in a Post
      2. BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Patterns
      3. Reusable Blocks
      4. Block directory
      5. Blocks in Widgets

@webcommsat and MegPhillips91 have been working on a block patterns workshop as part of the Questions and Answers on the Release, in feedback to the block patterns presentations to Meetups, and to tie in with Learn WordPress. Awaiting further discussions with Training on integrating this with a shorter version for the Learn WordPress platform and creating a lesson plans that will help tie all these resources together.

@paaljoachim suggested Reusable blocks are being worked on these days. The 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. will likely have some changes. Blocks in Widgets are being worked on these days. Block directory I am not sure how ready it is for a tutorial and hinted at waiting for these three topics.

@courane01 mentioned that these lessons are worth shipping because there will be video workshops at the same time. The audit tool is being worked on, which will help track areas to compare updates vs releases. These features are in core and already available, so whatever state they are in, users can already access them. These lessons will keep the training team in-sync with the equivalent versions in the workshops. https://learn.wordpress.org/workshops/using-the-block-editor/ to which @paaljoachim agreed stating lessons can be updated with time. 

@azhiyadevauwa asked @paaljoachim to include these two in the list for 5.7:

  1. Setting up a local WP development environment
  2. Testing instructions for testing a TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. ticket Patch.

@paaljoachim has done a tutorial for these was thinking of creating a lesson plan. He’s looking at the barrier for anyone submitting a new lesson. These blockers could be key learning points for improving the handbook.

  • Has made a new tutorial for setting up a local WP development Environment + testing instructions for testing a Trac ticket Patch
  • Made 2 videos, and will be creating a lesson plan for it.
  • Suggested having a section for ‘creating a lesson plan’ in the Lesson plan resources. He will write down the steps that he thinks should be added to the handbook.
  • Courtney agreed with @paaljoachim on the handbook revision. Also brought the point that to start writing a plan,  the team needs to decide what content is required. Then ask for volunteers to write the plan. That person then starts a draft on Learn WordPress. Reusable block has content. if your account needs access, pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” @azhiyadevauwa, @courane01, or @evarleseica they have a reusable block to use with pre-filled content on writing a lesson plan ready to go there.

But the problem – The training team traditionally goes through a process of volunteering for which topic to write via TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing., then the person would fork the plan in GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/, pull requests to contribute back, etc. The training team is looking for ways to reduce as many obstacles for those less familiar with those tools, and GitHub is not actively in sync with Learn.

MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. will have that audit/revision tool info available soon for the training team to know how all those features are possible without GitHub but until then @Hauwa will look at getting that part of the handbook updated or adding a post about it.

2. Slides – The training trying to figure out a solution for moving our Slides from GitHub onto Learn WP. Thanks to @Courtney who has come up with a solution. It now needs your help in testing this out https://make.wordpress.org/training/2021/01/29/request-for-testing-slides-plugin/

@ashiquzzaman and @Pooja Derashri have tested the pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party. The plugin looks promising
@ashiquzzaman suggested:

  1. Improving the process of adding new slides.
  2. It’s to have a presentation template with few slides instead of a blank slate. It takes time to understand the settings and how to proceed with creating slides. Having a template will cut down this confusion.
  3. The right sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme. should indicate the total number of slides the presentation has. Otherwise editing the slides becomes a boring & bland experience with a birds-eye overview.

@courane01 stated that the plugin has been used for Matt’s State of the Word address and can be found in .org repo . Notice that of the 2 contributors, one is the .org team itself. So that should help as far as submitting feature requests to it, like the weird behavior when adding a new slide.

@webtechpooja – suggested to update the plugin as the current plugin version was a year ago.

@courane01tney will submit a support ticket – asking it be tested against the current version of WP and another for the add slide (where the cursor lands)

3. Lesson plans for reformatting identified

The training team is still working on converting lesson plans to an outline format. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the handbook. The training team hopefully get through those by the end of the month.

4. Logistics on staying in line with releases –

The training team is looking at how we can stay in line with releases which at the moment are 4 a year. The proposal is:

  • Pull RC1 if not related to blocks and test
  • Check materials 2 business days before the release
  • Ship relevant plans with release party
  • Documenting procedures along the way

@webcommsat replied – we need to get together with the dev/ release group from marketing and others involved to see how we can work together on some of this, avoid duplication of effort, and create something even more user-focused.

@courane01 – Suggested the training team do a retro meeting at the end of the sprint, ensure that we followed these, and note any additional or alternative suggestions, and update our handbook documentation on this workflow.

Retro: a retrospective. Asking ourselves what worked well and what did not work well about the process. Any lesson plans that are not new features of the release can ship as soon as they’re complete.

5.  Plan March sprint with key stakeholders (Meta, Design, Marketing, etc.) –

@webcommsat update: The Questions and Answers on the Release has been some time in development and already working with the release squad, and been part of the discussions with training and Learn WordPress since the summer.

All that azhiyadevauwa addressed so far would be part of the sprint and goals for Feb. The upcoming items are not tied to a sprint but are quite crucial for overall flow.

6. Handbooks

  1. Training Team Handbook – I started looking at this again and findings/recommendations are being added to the google doc
  2. Learn WordPress Handbook — request for volunteers to help with this has gone out

If you want to help, please add your comments to the Training handbook doc and respond to the call for volunteers.

Celebrations: @paaljoachim has I have made a new tutorial for setting up a local WP development.

Open announcements/discussion

@webcommsat added a note on the block patterns lesson plan. @webcommsat, @courane01, @megphillips91 to discuss further and how to link in with the Questions and Answers, Learn WordPress and to support Meetups.

@webtechpooja will be representing #training at WordCamp India with support from @Hauwa on members of the Marketing Team.

https://make.wordpress.org/training/2021/01/29/wordcamp-india-2021/

This event is spread across 3 different weekends, with Feb 6-7 having a considerable focus on contributor dayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/..

@Pooja Derashri – Super excited for WC India Contributor day, which is on 6-7 Feb 2021, please grab your ticket before ending, and come and join us

https://india.wordcamp.org/2021/tickets/

@carike has been rethinking the delivery of training, including cost of consumption.  Please spend some time reading through these suggestions and comments.  Add your feedback as well.  I was really interested to hear from Hari during WC India this past weekend on the bandwidth access, hotspotting, and devices used while coding.  We really want to be mindful in how we deliver the content from Learn to be as accessible to all as we possibly can.

@Carike also published post on protecting children’s privacy on WordPress through the lens of COPPA. Essentially, all of the .org project needs some thought and attention on materials that aim to be directly for youth, and to comply with the various localized laws around that.  Your comments on this are also most appreciated.

If you haven’t had a chance to read through the Learn WordPress Working Group meeting notes, do check those out as well.  So many great discussions during that meeting.

@courane01 stated – We kicked off having Tuesday and Friday meetings just a few weeks ago.  The Tuesday meetings are on the same agenda as Fridays.  As a result, it seems quite a few more folks have joined us on Tuesdays, while on Fridays, folks wander in a bit later.  That is okay.  Also, we’ve had holidays and many regulars participated in WordFest the other week.

We’re considering turning Friday 11UTC meetings more into an open office hour and working time.  If folks need help getting started, or want to be online together while working, using time for that.

@chaion07 stated – having an office hour for Friday makes more sense. @azhiyadev and @webtechpooja agreed as well.

@courane01 also said – Informally, we can kick on video conferencing during that time if it helps, though likely won’t just have a video running throughout.  If we’d like to plan for any accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) needs, I will learn how other teams do this really well.  At this time, we won’t have a set agenda to discuss other than to do whatever we’ve committed to for the week.

Both @webtechpooja and @chaion07 suggested having a virtual coffee break meeting or video conference once a month or bi-weekly can be effective as modelled by the Marketing Team throughout 2020. Possibly run a Show and Tell meeting on Zoom on the last Wednesday each month, which is something the Design Team has started doing.

Please join us Tuesday 1700 UTC OR  Friday 1100 UTC in the #training Slack channel for our weekly meetings!

Learn WordPress: Blue sky thinking

As we get closer to launching Learn WordPress, and we continue to explore ways to improve the platform, a number of contributors started to pull together some ideas in this post for what we’d like to see Learn look like in the future.

This originally started as a Google document, so I’ve tried to capture most, if not all, of the comments shared in revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update. The revision system allows you to see what changes were made in each revision by dragging a slider (or using the Next/Previous buttons). The display indicates what has changed in each revision. of this list. However, these ideas are just a starting point to collect all of our ideas and visions for Learn. Please keep adding thoughts, ideas, clarifications, and so on as you think of them!

Project Goals

Learn WordPress is an online platform that offers free educational content for anyone interested in learning how to publish with, build for, and contribute to WordPress. It is intended to be the primary learning resource for anyone wanting to learn how to do more, and help others do more, with WordPress.  

We aim to:

  • Educate about WordPress
  • Appreciate the power of WordPress and how it’s made
  • Celebrate all the cool things people are doing with WordPress

What could this look like?

Think of this as answering the question: “What could Learn WordPress look like in 2023?”

High Priority items before learn.wordpress.org launch Part 2

Wow… thank you, contributors! We have made a serious dent in all the cleanup on Learn in preparation for the tentative December 8 full launch. Part 1 list can be found just a week ago.

This is a more granular list of what remains to be done. Before we move on to new content (some high priority ones are shown below), let’s try to knock out the remaining issues first.

Draft status lessons: 

Review any lessons in “draft” status that does not refer to brands. Leave them as drafts for now but fix broken links, images, etc.

Lessons that refer to brands are generally avoided for now until the team regroups on mentioning brands… again. (We’ve had many chats on this, but can certainly aim for a way to help the participants while sorting out how we feature or refer to brands).
