Evaluation (Session led by Martin Oliver, UCL)

10:15 Break-out sessions and general discussion

We will be considering issues such as:

  • What are you looking for when evaluating a project and how do you determine the criteria by which to measure the success of a resource?
  • How do we decide which individuals are best suited to evaluate a given project?
  • Have you found any good ways of eliciting useful user feedback, and how do you then ensure that there is the opportunity to review and act upon what you have collected?
  • Can evaluation be a one size fits all procedure that can be used on every new site?

Accessibility (Session led by Lawrie Phipps, Techdis)

14:30 Break-out sessions and general discussion

We will be looking at issues such as:

  • How do you (and your group/institution) define what makes a site “accessible”? Is the emphasis on adhering to a known benchmark, or on providing solutions that work with assistive technology?
  • Do we as developers fully understand the range of disabilities which we need to consider and the implications of each?
  • Is accessibility a “good thing” in terms of the overall user experience, or does it contribute to a less “effective” site overall?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of automated checking tools such as BOBBY and LIFT.
