Recap of March 14, 2017 meeting

Lesson Plan Update

None.

Copyediting

@Donkiely said the Themes/Plugins Relationship lesson plan (https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/theme-school/themesplugins-relationship/) is copyedited but really needs someone knowledgeable in the subject to go over it. The LP seems more like an outline than a finished product.

@coachwp agreed. Paul and I worked on that and it might need more information.

@chantaboune volunteered to take a look at it.

@donkiely copyediting site performance LP.

Question regarding customizing header and background images and if it had been edited. @skarjune had fixed some problem found earlier and @estes.chris went over it as copyeditor.

Testing Updates

@coachwp did High Level Overview and One Touch Install using Bluehost and both went well. Question is being written up by @melindahelt.

Q&A/Announcements

@chanthaboune asked if we should be working to help create some movement around learn.wordpress.com work. @bethsoderberg replied: I think it would be super helpful if people workshopped a plan around how to present the completed lesson plans, perhaps a list of suggested workshops or a new teacher’s guide, etc.

@melindahelt pointed out that Trello cards can’t be edited. Thought is that it may be because people have to be granted membership, which is limited in free version. @melindahelt and @bethsoderberg will research further.

@melindahelt wondered if we would move the meeting due to DST.

Voted to vote. Discussion switched to audit of discussion times for everyone. Final decision was to meet at the same time DST.

Recap of March 7 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates

None given.

Copyediting Updates

@donkiely: Finished the WooCommerce plan. Many changes, so a review is needed.

@bethsoderberg will mark it in need of review.

Testing Updates

@coachwp giving first session in NYC Mar. 8.

@skarjune started ongoing between workshop on WordPress Content Management with a focus group of 4 communications professionals.

This continued with a discussion of confusion between .com and .org, and between WordPress and commercial site builders. @skarjune is starting with getting a wordpress.com account as an introduction into the ecosystem. Also discussed is the differences in the admin interfaces and how that can be confusing to a person new to WordPress.

WCEU Community Summit

@chanthaboune and @bethsoderberg are trying to dig up the suggested topics from a CSV and PDF. Request for more topics.

@chanthaboune wondered if @wpaleks and @juliekuel would be available.

@bethsoderberg: one suggested topic is: Certification / Gamification / Testing / Whatever

@bethsoderberg, viewing Preview of CSV/PDF files, found several that were just titles with no description and tagged with other a bunch of other teams.

@bethsoderberg: I think it’s hard to propose much given that we know most of us won’t be there.

@chanthaboune agrees and suggest that we not have any topics but that she come as a rep proxy.

@bethsoderberg suggest a virtual “team summit” video meeting after WCEU to have an open forum with this team. Cannot talk about things discussed at WCEU because of safe spaces rule.

@donkiely: Is Trello current on what LPs are ready for copyediting.

@bethsoderberg: It is unless there are updates from last week.

@donkiely to update on some that he may grab

@morganestes tested https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/user-lessons/choosing-and-installing-a-theme/ at the OKCWP meetup Feb. 27. There’s a typo on the quiz that mixes up the right answer numbers, but the rest of the content in the lesson plan is good. The quiz is at https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/user-lessons/choosing-and-installing-a-theme/#quiz

Lesson Plan Updates

Copyediting Updates

  • @bethsoderberg has an audit update. There are a few lessons that we’re missing updates on. Current Trello board: https://trello.com/b/zFnkQF91/wordpress-training-team-copyediting-flow
    • Let’s do a better job of sending links to lessons when we talk about them in chat.
  • @esteschris, @vmarie is also interested, @donkiely, and @meaganhanes are in need of new lessons for copyediting.
  • @esteschris: Copyediting is done on https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/theme-school/customizer-header-and-background-images/ and had questions about how to make images available for everyone. Chris will confirm all necessary changes are made.
    • Once we’ve edited it, do we move it on the board?
    • No, let’s do it in the weekly check-ins (either Slack or on the agenda post) so that it’s all tracked in one place.

Testing Updates

  • @coachwp’s program starts on March 8th. This program is for kids and features 6 sessions once a month.
  • Morgan Estes is testing Choosing and Installing Themes with the Oklahoma City meetup group

Updates

  • WCEU has a community summit AND a contributor day this year, so let’s figure out if we have topics we need to cover.
  • Please leave feedback on the accessibility workshop outline: https://make.wordpress.org/training/2017/02/14/accessibility-lesson-plans/
  • @esteschris and @chanthaboune will be at the WordCamp Atlanta contributor day.

Accessibility Lesson Plan(s)

Currently there is a lesson plan titled “Theme Accessibility” (https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/theme-school/theme-accessibility/). Upon initial testing of this lesson plan, feedback was received that indicated we should consider a user-oriented lesson and a theme-developer oriented lesson.

So the questions are: should there be two accessibility lesson plans, one for users and one for theme school? If so, what would they look like? If not, what would that look like?

Discuss. 🙂

Welcome
Lesson Plan Updates

  • @Skarjune: “Customizer: Taglines” should be complete by EOD of meeting. Working on three other LP copy edits next week.
  • @Donkiely: Unable to make progress due to ambiguity of task. Will review Template Tour and remove red text and strike-throughs.

Discussion of Yearly Goals

  1. Content flow solution
  2. More solid copyediting process (ties into 1)
  3. Proper handbook (ties to 1 + 2)
  4. Outreach to local groups
  5. An accessibility workshop

It seemed generally agreed that considering Edit Flow as one solution and focusing on #1 are probably good ideas but no word on how long it will take to get Edit Flow appropriate sign offs. @bethsoderberg will talk to @chanthaboune when she is back online.

Trello to be an interim solution until Edit Flow (or something else is implemented.

Because of the enormity of the goals @bethsoderberg will write a post about what we know so far about each of our goals and then members can pick up the torch on the pieces they are interested in.
