Thank you for all of your help and encouragement. My question pertains to photos: With the "frame" attribute, the photo will always be "actual size." And, you must have a "frame" to make a "caption"? Is this right? So.... My photo's "actual size" must've been beyond huge, yet, I wanted a caption. Then I would need to go into some photo editing program to make the photo in my gallery "smaller"? Thanks for any help you can offer! Charlotte
I have a question. I am playing in my sandbox, creating new pages. I don't know how to get back to my sandbox page once I have gone to the new page. There are no breadcrumbs as in Moodle. Is the idea to just use the 'back' button in the browser? I have been going back by clicking on my profile page link at the top of the screen.I doubt that this is the way though!
Thanks for your support. Alison
(: Hi Alison, In a perfect world, you would be able to click on an icon to go back, but for now, in the Wiki, you have two options: You can either just click on the back button at the very top of each page, or you create a previous/next page button on your actual page. Simply type two curly brackets, then type Next and a Vbar, then type the name of your page exactly and close the curly brackes. If you open my response under the "edit" tab of this page, you'll see it.

I would like to know how to create shortened URLs.--Marsha Guthrie 23:05, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
(: Hi Marsha, the best way to shorten an url is using an external free link called "Tiny url".Just enter it into the internet browser http:///www.tinyurl.com, when it opens, enter your long url, click create and copy and paste the shortened url into where you need it to be. Done. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 23:23, 24 January 2010 (UTC))
What was the most difficult aspect of the workshop for you?
- (: I am curious about how other teachers from around the world have shared. Is there a place where K12 resources are stored either by country or Year level? I am still pondering what I can offer to other teachers in this forum.Clairbee 05:41, 22 January 2010 (UTC))
(: Hi Claire, thank you for your comment. There is no particular place on the Wiki where specifically K-12 Teachers as we do this as community as a whole. There are however place, such as the Teacher Collaboration Portal] where some of the information is stored. Another place to look would be under the Content tab of the Main WikiEducator page]. Hope this is helpful. --Patricia Schlicht 22:34, 22 January 2010 (UTC))

Did you identify any errors? Please specify
Any suggestion on how to improve the workshop?
- I would keep any future class meetings on a weekend (preferably Sunday) as that is when many people would have more time moreso than during the work week.
(: Thank you, Marsha. Exactly our thinking too. It has been wonderful meeting you. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 04:36, 31 January 2010 (UTC))
