My Experience with WikiEducator
My first introduction to WikiEducator was the Tectonic Shift Think Tank meeting in the spring of 2007. Since then I've been sharing my enthusiasm for WikiEducator in my writing and presentations (see my WikiEducator Ambassador Listing). In my work at Michigan State University, we've shared international business finance content using WikiEducator in our MSU Global International Business Resources Project
Open Educational Resources and communities like WikiEducator can help us create important changes in education. My vision statement for the Tectonic Shift Think Tank sums up what I think we can create together:
Learning that empowers individuals to define and achieve their learning goals by choosing and co-creating resources, services, forms of recognition and records of achievement. A system that is enabled by: plenty of expertise; plenty of learning resources; plenty of effective and efficient learning experiences in all forms of time and space; and plenty of ways to value, recognize and badge achievement.

Notes and Feedback from my Wiki Neighbours
- Very nice to see you have an early start on making your User page. If you have not seen it yet, I recommend that you look at the youtube video clip on Wikis. In WikiEd, as in the video, the most important buttons are edit and save. A third button, Link, is not quite the same on WikiEd. To make a sub page, in edit mode, you simply give it a name. put forward slashes around it, then two square brackets in front and after the result. When you save, the word will be in red. Click on it and it will tell you there is no such page. As soon as you start editing, the sub page is created. Another tip is to borrow from your Wiki neighbours. Browse around other User pages. If there is anything you like, just copy it and paste it in to your user page. Make any modification you need, and there you are.--Phil Bartle 01:32, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
