Breaking down into subpages (1)

Hi Irwin, Alison

This is coming along rather nicely.

I recommend breaking each "Module" into subpages, ie each of the following as a separate subpage of the Module:

   Description (or overview of the module)
   Introduction
   The Individual Artist
   Becoming an Artist: Training
   Art as Social Activity 

Breaking into sub-pages will make it easier to integrate within a learning management system or alternative delivery website, but also create flexibility to embed activities (eg Microblog reflections, self-assessment quizes without the pages getting too long.)

Something else to think about - eg naming conventions of the pages.

I would recommend not using the actual Module number - -eg "Module 2" but rather refer to the name of the Module as the page name - -eg "The artistic process".

This provides greater reuse flexibility -- another course may want to re-use this in a different sequence - -and if we use "Module 2" as the title -- it will reduce this flexibility.

   Alison - is the best method just to create the new pages, copy over and then get rid of the old ones? Guessing there's no way just to change the page name/url

       It possible to use the move feature in Mediawiki,
       But in this instance I would suggest is may be easier just to create the new pages. In the first edit, acknowledging the copyright of the original contributors.
       Now is a good time to make the change before history of community edits becomes a challenge.

Using a quote template (1)

Hi Irwin,

I moved the quote on this page to use a cquote template. What do you think? Another option is to use the quotation template, which has a different look. Probably we should pick one and use it consistently for all quotations in the course.

Also, while we are discussing the quote, I think the quote has typos/conversion errors, eg. can' I think should be can't, and seems like the later apostrophe needs a match.

Best, Alison

   Hi Alison,
   I like the cquote - it's breaks up the page. Anything we can do to avoid long strips of text... And yes there are conversion errors for both single and double quotation marks. This seems to happen when I use the WE export plugin in Open Office (which is how I convert the files). I'm cleaning them up after I find them.
