Goals for the meeting

  • Review and agree on project information, time line, responsibilities, etc. (to be prepared by me in advance).
  • Review where and how the tutorial will be inserted into the interface.
  • Review the main topics to be covered by the tutorial: is it possible / desirable to include all of them?
  • Review and acknowledge general requirements (such as the need to address a globally diverse audience)
  • Answer other questions not listed here (to be prepared in advance by anyone who has questions).
