Proposal for GitHub Process Updates

Based on the discussions during the August 24th / 30th Supplemental SME Meeting and recent Monthly Faculty Meeting, folks have requested changes to the GitHub Content Development Board’s issue triaging and management. This proposal offers improvement suggestions to the current GitHub processes in order to clarify workflows for Faculty and Training Team Members.

August Sprint Retrospective

At the end of the month, we run a retrospective and review

  1. What went well?
  2. What could we improve?
  3. What will we do differently?

Check out the feedback from last month and if you missed it you can add your comments to the post.

 Course Creation – Making the process public

Jonathan is publicly documenting his process for course creation.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make the process of course creation public and open to feedback. As such I have decided to try and build the content publicly, by using a separate GitHub repository in my personal account. You can read more about my reasoning on this comment on the course issue in GitHub.

Allie has an idea for a course about creating courses.

Here is the link: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RW657Q/p1662927462402609

Training team badges

Pooja has been working on a post regarding how training team badges are awarded. This will shortly be circulated to the team to review and comment.

Handbook Updates

The following pages in the handbook have been updated:

Open Discussion

There is some confusion as to which GitHub Projects board should be used.

  1. This is the original board for content: https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/2
  2. This board was created to test GitHub automation:  https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/33

Courtney shared the following thoughts :

We prefer the point where media comes in to be on LearnWP itself. We’ve had issues of media being hot linked to GitHub still. Also, all currently live posts should be revised using the revision 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 tool on Learn itself. We moved to only creating on Learn because GitHub can intimidate a lot of folks. The old way of writing on GitHub was a much steeper step up for folks that don’t know it. I think the key for the team is to be consistent so we know where to go to view work someone has partially done.

Meeting Note Takers

Meeting recap notes is one of the best ways to get started contributing to a team. Please refer to this guide to get started.

  • September 6 – @artdecotech
  • September 13 – Opportunity to volunteer
  • September 20 – @hderashri 
  • September 27 – Opportunity to volunteer

We are looking for note-takers for September, Interested? Let us know!

We’d still like a few folks to help provide access to the team site during meetings and welcome anyone along. Interested? Let us know.

Faculty Members Update

Please welcome our newest faculty member @Vagelis. He is joining our team as a content creator.
Please check the faculty members’ full list here for more details. https://make.wordpress.org/training/faculty-program-members/

Update on Individual Learn Survey

The survey is currently in progress for review.
@courane01: Once we are ready to go with it, Then I’ll integrate the survey to Learn Website and share the link here in the Training channel.  I anticipate this possibly later today.

Update on Team meetings

Meetings will be held in alternating time zones starting from September, so bear with us for today. Also, our next meeting will be in an alternating pattern. When a region is not running a team meeting, the time will be used for:

  • Office hour, bring your questions about training, Learn, content, etc.
  • Sprint/GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that 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/ issue review
  • Provide feedback on items that are currently in review

further discussion on this in a slack thread

Training Team Profile Badges

We provide training team contributor badges that reflect on the http://WordPress.org profile that acknowledges your contributions to the Training Team. Right now this handbook page is outdated. we need to update it.

Things to consider before updating it:

  1. We are no longer using Github for a lesson plan, so we should consider removing it. No PR merged for this, then how we can provide a badge
  2. What if someone reports and fixes issues on Github, and after how many merged PRs, a person is eligible for a badge
  3. We are no longer using 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. boards, need to remove there

further discussion on this in a slack thread

Localized Content

@bsanevans started drafting a handbook page about how folks can create localized content for Learn WordPress. He’d appreciate any feedback people would like to add to the Google Doc in this Slack message: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RW657Q/p1660986964613769

Team Structure

@bsanevans: Secondly, I’ve been thinking about the current team structure. I’ve reimagined the contributor roles we have, in light of the Faculty Program which is going really well. This is very much a rough idea, and I’m open to any thoughts the team has. Please leave any feedback in this Slack thread I started earlier: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RW657Q/p1661838946241849

Update on August 25th / 30th Supplemental SME meeting

We had a meeting to finalize the role and responsibilities of our newly joined SMEs. Anyone can share the update on who is in the meeting?

We discussed the Github board and what can we do to make it clear to go to work for them. @piyopiyofox will soon share a post on what we discussed in this meeting on our Training team p2 post. Stay tuned for that.

Content published this Week:
Creating a new header with blocks

Content available for review:
The following reviews have been requested this week

Check-ins

What went well this month?
Significant content in multiple languages was shipped., Long-time contributors re-joined. Security measures developed for Online Workshops to protect facilitators and attendees from disruptions/Zoom bombing. You can follow the conversation here.

What could we improve? 
We still need course creators’ input on how to revise the content for any feature changes in WordPress. We need to focus on creating more course content and also build out the handbook so contributors have clearer guidance. You can follow the conversation here.

What will we do differently?

We can reduce the frequency of meetings and move detailed these discussions to the team blog using the meetings only for quick discussions. You can follow the conversation here.

September sprint plan discussion

@azhiyadev: One of the suggestions we’ve had is to only post 5-10 items on the monthly Sprint post so that newcomers are not overwhelmed. We also discussed having Faculty SMEs vote on what we should be working on.
We’ve got Faculty meetings scheduled this week and it would be a good opportunity to get the SMEs to prioritize our workload for September.
One of the things I would like to see taken into consideration is the auditing of existing content especially courses as we plan what we should be working on.

Wider community

There have been some bigger discussions happening in the wider WordPress community which will have effects on the work we do in the Training team. Check out these discussion, and make sure to leave any thoughts you have on the respective posts.

Information Sources for 6.1

The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ change logs and CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress.

We could use support from course creators to track areas that need to be updated/revised related to WP 6.0 (already shipped) and the upcoming changes in 6.1.

Lesson Plan landing page will be updated!

The team has been discussing a visually organized way to navigate the Lesson Plans. We’ve landed on a conclusion, and are just waiting for a code review on the updates. Keep an eye out for the updates to go live soon!

We welcomed new Faculty Members!

We recently onboarded additional members to our Faculty Program. If you’re interested in joining our dedicated team, come check out the Faculty Program section of our handbook. We’re particularly interested in seeing more join from APAC regions.


Sprint

We’ve come to the end of our June and July 2022 Sprint and will be publishing a retrospective in the coming week. We took some time to share stats, wins and other feedback in the meetings.

What went well?

What could we improve?

  • Clarification, increased participation, and better onboarding to our different team roles.
  • Assign priority on GitHub issues more precisely.
  • Ship the Individual Learner Survey.
  • Become more data-driven in our decisions.

What will we do differently?

  • Improve general onboarding flow for newcomers.
  • Create material to clarify and introduce each team role.
  • Improve communication around GitHub issues and what contributions are appreciated.
  • Work with 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. Team on tracking contributions.

Open Discussions

Collecting feedback from Online Workshop facilitators and attendees

@bsanevans suggested setting up an optional feedback form for workshop facilitators on the After an Online Workshop handbook page. Faculty administrators would have access to the form submissions, and would act on any actionable feedback.

@caraya suggested also collecting participant feedback – perhaps anonymously. We’re still considering what method would be most effective.

Leave a comment on the GitHub issue if you’d like to participate.

WCUS Contributor Day – September 11

We’d like to submit a single form for Learn. Please comment on the original Slack thread to share your interest in helping, in person and/or remotely.

The form needs to be submitted by July 29th and includes roles such as: table leads, team onboarding person, Slack rep (can be remote).

Community Course Creation: A Proposal

Sarah (@arasae) drafted a proposal to break course creation out into smaller chunks, lowering the barrier to entry for course creation and making it a more collaborative experience.

Sarah summarized the proposal as breaking courses up into a series of lessons.

Comment on the proposal with feedback on the process listed and any questions you have.

In the spirit of making the process of course creation more streamlined, another proposal exists, Rethinking Lesson Plan Creation.

Discussion: Naming content types on Learn WordPress

Although there is no decision and consensus made yet, @courane01 suggested officially documenting the idea to merge videos, what are currently lesson plans, and slides all into a single content type per topic.

Content type names should reflect the audiences the LearnWP team serves:

  • direct learners wanting a single topic/solution
  • learners wanting a deep dive to learn everything they can
  • teachers/facilitators wanting to train others (like MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. organizers)
  • learners wanting to learn in real time groups.

WordPress Certifications

It is on the 2022 team goals to officially begin discovery phase during Q4 (October – December) of WordPress Certifications.

Share ideas, questions, feedback, and concerns as comments on this post.

Previous considerations of WordPress Certifications had many mixed opinions and perspectives so no decision was ultimately made.

This time, the approach is different and includes:

  1. The Individual learning survey (currently blocked here with GDPR concerns)
  2. Needs Analysis. A formal survey directly at different scales and locals using WordPress professionally as a part of their livelihoods.
  3. Forming the Curriculum Advisory Board
  4. Discovery and research around how other open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. / proprietary systems handle certifications.

Learn WordPress Development: Creating a Public Roadmap for Content Creation

Jonathan Bossenger @psykro put together a public roadmap for LearnWP content creation and got started on the with his first workshop, WordPress Action Hooks.

The post focuses on what specific programming/technical content should be created for LearnWP in order for no-code developers to learn the programming languages & APIs that power WordPress and extend WordPress.

Independent Learner Survey

This Independent Learner Survey was worked on by the team at WCEU. The hope is to open this up for any individual in the WordPress space to share how they’ve learned WordPress, what areas they’d like more support with learning, and more.

While this is not a full “needs analysis”, the goal is to make LearnWP a resource to really serves the community, from hobbyists to large scale organizations and many roles within. This survey is a first step in identifying the types of content that WordPress users are looking for.

Training Needs Analysis

Following the Learner Survey, a more official “needs analysis” should be conducted. There is a bit of an industry standard for these. @Robbie and @abhanonstopnewsuk have volunteered to help the team move further along with this. Both are seasoned professionals who conduct frequent needs analysis. A working session to begin this process will hopefully be scheduled by next week.

Naming Content Types

On LearnWP, we have:

  • lesson plans
  • workshops
  • social learning spaces
  • courses

Workshops were originally a term the Training Team used/intended to mean a series of lesson plans presented together, much like the workshops during WCEU.

The term was then applied to mean videos on LearnWP that people watched before attending discussion groups (later named Social Learning Spaces). In conjunction with the feedback from #polyglots that “Social Learning Spaces” often doesn’t translate well, the team is rethinking how things are named.

Merging Lesson Plan and Workshops

Related to the naming of content types mentioned above, workshops are now videos, roughly in parity with lesson plans. Previous effort/work has been done around what the merge could look like, including the landing pages for lesson plans.

The idea tentatively is to have the video and slides near the top, the text walk-throughs after, and tuck the teacher bits like objective statements behind a tab dropdown or something of the sort. Here are a couple proposed ideas:

The team is also thinking that adding several lesson plans together essentially become a course. The individual versions would be stand-alone, and could still be presented by a MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. organizer and used by instructors, or direct learners.

There is still a lot of work to be done, and further progress depends on finalizing content type naming.

Monthly Retrospective

Each month, the Training team works in Sprints. These are goals we hope to accomplish for that month. At the end of the month, we conduct a retrospective by asking ourselves a few questions. The feedback is then posted, here is an example from April 2022. May’s retrospective was delayed due to WCEU.

May Sprint 2022

  • 2 Lesson Plans were published including one in Brazilian Portuguese
  • 6 Workshops were published including one in Brazilian Portuguese
  • 1 Course was published
  • 23 items in Drafts in Progress
  • 13 items in Review in Progress (of which 4 are ready to publish)

Training Team Goals

Carried over from Q1:

  • Implement a Faculty program (like Community Deputies, name to be determined). 
  • Brainstorm and discovery for the creation of a Needs Analysis. Still in progress and a Learner Survey has been created in the interim. 
  • Create Instructor/Facilitator resources portion on LearnWP

Goals for Q2

  • Conduct Needs Analysis
  • Create content useful for WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe
  • Release roadmap of new content (that isn’t tied to WP releases/features)
  • Assess content that has the largest impact
  • Overhaul the “Submit an Idea” form. Build in conditional logic for workshop, lesson plan, and course.
  • Ongoing promotions collaborations with other Make teams such as Marketing, Polyglots, Docs, 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).

Team Comment on the Retrospective

Each month, team members have an opportunity to share what they think what went well? What could the team improve? What will the team do differently in the future? The responses from each meeting are below.

June/July Sprint

For the June/July Sprint, the proposal was to simply continue working through the backlog of existing tasks.

Open Discussions

@caraya prompted a good discussion about where to put “auxiliary content” for lesson plans. This type of content could include sample code files that could traditionally not be uploaded to the lesson itself. Some proposed options included a GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.
