W3C today announced a collaboration with Jefferson University User Experience and Interaction Design program, which has established a class and a small working group of student designers to re-design the W3C’s specification template, aiming to make the standards for the web easier to use. The scope, requirements and audiences considerations are listed in the SpecProd/Restyle wiki.
The students are asking for your guidance, criticism and participation; and will be posting updates, sharing explorations and revisions, and requesting feedback via the Jefferson + W3C Collaboration blog. Everyone who uses or produces W3C specifications is invited to follow along and contribute. This will be a semester-long project for the students, with the goal of producing a prototype for May 2018. (Implementation and deployment plans will follow.)
