Notes from my WikiNeighbours
(: Dear Godfred. Great user page and so creative, love it. Great work! I am sure you are going to advance to the next level very soon. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 18:03, 2 September 2011 (UTC))
Hi Godfred! Its great to meet you on this space and seeing that you have "alternative assessment" listed in your projects. This sounds interesting to me because my current research is also on assessment in online higher education with a specific focus on seamless integration of assessment into teaching and learning...so I am trying to establish whether web-based technology can enhance how this happens in distance education setup. --Joyce W. G-G 21:38, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
- Hi! Thank you for your warm welcome. Hoping to be in contact and share experiences in this amazing community of Educators. --Alejacha 22:31, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

WikiEducator Learning4Content51 Workshop: "Becoming an Agent of Change through Openness"
At eL4C51 I will continue learning the wiki skills. Here is my personal log for the eL4C51 workshop, there you will find the instructions for every day, tips, key points, reflections and activities I developed.
| My optional community service(learning contract) project
- By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddyabd proceed to WikiArtisan. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.
- I shall also work in collaboration with Alison Snieckus on the math community project, at WikiEducator:Mathematics Community
