Talk:Training Educators to Design and Develop ODL Materials/Needs Analysis/Archive

Content Layout

An observation made within the group is that Capitalisation of topics seems quite pleasant and helpful. However, the first three topics were not formatted to provide this same level of pleasantry. We encourage this group to edit the firs three topics by capitalizing the words.

While we feel that the general layout and the quantity of material might have been determined to be necessary after a study of the content, we believe that the material is somewhat verbose. The amount of material would, in our minds, be daunting to the learner. We recommend that:

1. the team attempts to place some of this material in bullet form
2. the team determines which portions of the material can be placed on a separate page so that the user can determine when s/he will access that page to view the material therein.

As a group we wish to complement this team for:

1. their excellent, thorough, and relatively exhaustive coverage of the information
2. being resourceful in the acquisition of relevant information and posting of the material,
3. skillfully applying the principles explored within the eleven (11) tutorials, and
4. the creative use of the artwork and crafty insertion of graphics.

Please have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Section#Table_of_contents_.28TOC.29 and at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:TOCright to see how you can improve the start of your article. Also the graphic is confusing :-p!

Also you've got a bunch of extra white space (enters) and there's a funny link in the questionnaire and interview section.

BTW have a look at http://wikieducator.org/Help:Tips since you're quoting wikipedia.

Random Sampling

I feel that it would be better if you could define the terms used under"Random Sampling".

Thoughts from Vancouver

This is an excellent start - well done.

As I've suggested for one of the other tutorials - it may be wise to structure each main section as a tutorial within the main them of the needs analysis.

It would be good for the Singapore boot campers to have a general discussion on layout so as to develop a consistent look and feel across all the materials. Perhaps develop a style guide for this development.

For example - take a look at the structure and design of the film school on Wikiversity - http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Filmmaking . I think that this layout and structure is too elaborate for our purposes, but you may be able to generate a few ideas.
