So using some tools already in Open Atrium (the built-in Help-as-modal-palette function) we built a module to provide contextual in-app help with an awesome twist. By shamelessly stealing some JS from jQuery Highlighter, and writing some other stuff for UI interaction, we have an in-app tour with highlighted page elements that is sure to make this transition a piece of cake for most folks. Check out what it looks like:
A quick note about accessibility as well - while there's a visual change on the page (an overlay hides everything and a clone of the object is floated above it with a halo), we also have a non-visible-but-keyboard-and-reader accessible link in each description that will jump to either an anchor of the element, or if the element itself is a link, just take the user to that link.
Update: Check out this video with an even better interface:
We're excited to see what our trainers come up with for content, and I think this will make everyone's transition a little bit easier this fall!
