The usability team that has been designing and testing the OER editor interactions will be blogging regularly to share everything about our design and testing process. Their first introduction post is up on the oerpub.org site.
Since we are an open source and open content project, the designs and processes are all open also. Not only do we hope to create an incredibly easy to use editor without sacrificing power and utility, but would be thrilled if the best of our ideas are copied and used elsewhere also.
And we hope that open source development teams around the world can learn from our successes and failures with making useful software.
We have a back log, so expect a quick series of blog entries as we get caught up sharing initial designs and tests from Open Ed, and then our redesigns and test cycles from December and January.
