Accessibility of the edit function in extension-MOOC should be improved
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

First let me congratulate all contributors to the MOOC-Interface. I really like the global look and feel.

Looking at this example course, I wondering if we may not have accessibilty problems over editing. I believe keeping edition as easy and accessible as possible is of extreme importance in our projects.

So, let me describe a newcomer editing experience. Editing the whole page make only appear a module invocation. Ok, the "wannabe a new contributor" may feel confused, some may even give up. Now, one may remember that on other wiki thy saw "edit" link at each title. At first, there are no such links on the page, but moving the mouse hover, it finally appear. I think this icons should be always visible. Also the icons should have relevant alternative text, currently here is what will be displayed when looking at the page with a text browser such as elinks:

Wikiversity-Mooc-Icon-Ask.svg

Now, back in a more mainstream browser, the edit action open an unusual popin editor. Why such a choice? There are already plenty of work done by the WMF around improving the editing, introducing a new editor look and feel will ban all the benefit of this work. If you consider this pop in system crucial, please explain why. Otherwise please consider sticking to the already available editors.

Once again, I am globally very enthusiast about this interface, and I hope that this ticket will help to make even better. :)
