Notes on the 11-12 August 2009 LIGO Workshop at Notre Dame
The users liked the system, but also struggled in some places.
Survey/test code is wonky
- Phong is working on resolving this
The teachers seemed highly confused about using and navigating the logbook
The pencil and magnifying-glass icons are not understood to be hyperlinks
The instructions at the top of the page are ignored - users go directly to the content
Flow of commenting is unintuitive
Refresh button if student posts a new logbook or comment?
Still some problems with IE and CSS
needs some work (lots of dead space)
Probably elsewhere as well
Legend on the plots is too small and hard to read in PNG mode. Most people can't view (E)PS or SVG.
Make a PDF version?
Logging in from the Bluestone side (to post a plot) does not then log into the e-Lab side.
Pen color selection should be automagic
The "save plot as" button and textfield should be separated out and re-ordered. Users click "save plot" before they type something in!
The log-scale checkbox doesn't seem to work reliably.
Going back to Data Selection clears out the user's previous settings
Users had some trouble finding their profile editing link
The links on the top/bottom forum navbar sometimes send users to admin-only sections
Need a faster way to access the forum
60-minute edit window is not good for workshops when people go on break
Teachers would like a link to the teacher pages from the student pages (for users logged in as teacher only!)
Displaying a plot from the logbook does not hide the top/side menus
If the field is blank should default to "all" (does this in Cosmic's data search)
