OERu/Planning/Technology working group/2015-09-18
- UTC (hover or click for local time)
Reminder: The meeting will be one hour earlier in UTC terms starting with the October meeting, because of the change to daylight savings time in New Zealand.
- as requested at the last meeting, messages from Discourse are now harvested for WEnotes (OERf request)
- 2015 Annual report for the Technology working group - to be presented at October 2015 partner's meeting in South Africa -- I am not seeing the usual Google Hangout link, but I want to add I will be happy to take the lead on drafting this. (Obviously, with many opportunities for you all to edit or comment as you wish.) I know I have been too remote lately, I very much want to make this contribution. I hope that's OK. (And hopefully I will be joining the hangout soon.) Blamb (talk)blamb
- Widget:YouTube (and therefore Template:YouTube which wraps it) now support full URLs to external videos in addition to the original YouTube IDs. This allows a stylistically consistent "clickable poster frame" for playing video. External videos always use the poster frame supplied by the author and always act as a link to the external site (rather than embedding for playback in an OERu snapshot). (UoW request)
- The WordPress oeru_course theme now supports a second icon set and a set of defaults for a "red" color scheme. Template:IDevice now embeds a data-theme attribute which the WP snapshot script honors. (CSU request)
