W3C: CoVid-19 Remote Meet, Work, Class Community Group created

In the face of the covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, lots of meetings, schools, other kinds of events are trying to "go virtual". To help people understand their choices and other concerns, we started a "community group" at W3C.

Inviting experts in the current state of usable technology for remote meetings, classes, work from home, etc. to help put together best practices documents for the transition.


From the announcement:

The CoVid-19 Remote Meet, Work, Class Community Group has been launched:
http://www.w3.org/community/covid-19/
A clearinghouse for experience and guidelines for people who are suddenly called to avoid travel or meetings, work-at-home or do classes online. Focus on current capabilities and future needs.
To join:
http://www.w3.org/community/covid-19/join

If you do not have one already, you will need a W3C account to join:

This is a community initiative. W3C's hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair:
