  1. Attendance: Tim Klapdoor, Tim McCallum, Jim Tittsler, Wayne Mackintosh.
  2. Discussed critique we have received in using Dashboard as a label
    • Will use "console" as label for OCL4Ed June prototype
    • Noted that Dashboard is used by edX for submitting assignments - still a useful concept
  3. Discussed draft outline for next OCL4Ed prototype
    • Short single word descriptors needed for main menu items
  4. Discussed the SCAN page prototype in detail
    • Designed by USQ to be a landing page and substitute navigation framework
    • Level 2 items should produce dynamic navigation of options unless it's a target page
    • Next OCL4Ed will prototype an implementation whereby the SCAN page is accessible from any page as a popup in main navigation
    • Considered providing navigation options for OERu partners in the future when making a snapshot (eg SCAN page as main navigation or conventional website navigation with a popup to display a SCAN page).
    • SCAN page could be used to indicate dynamically where a learner is situated within the course structure.
  5. Team will start developing ideas in the wiki for:
