- Great to see you in the tutorial and to see your user page. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials?--Phil Bartle 05:47, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
(: Welcome to Wikieducator. Great start, Jeff. I suggest you go into pages click on edit, learn how the codes are used for whatever you want, copy and paste them in your sandbox to practice wiki codes. There are internal and external links. You figured out the external ones, now notice the internal onex, how to make new pages to add to existing ones, how to upload files including images and add them to the pages. Enjoy! Warm wishes, --Nellie Deutsch 10:46, 29 April 2009 (UTC))
My name is Jeff Cooper and I've been an educator since 1991. I taught mostly English, ESL and Computer Applications until 2000 when I moved to Forest Grove Oregon and worked at Pacific University's College of Education as the Edtech Specialist for three years. Due to budget cuts I was laid off (same time my wife and I separated) and I've been a single dad with three kids ever since. I currently substitute teach, but spend most of my time giving online support to educators and students.
My most used venue is Tapped In, a professional educators' collaborative. I'm on Helpdesk there and aside from giving daily support, I help teachers create their own virtual classrooms on Saturdays at 11a.m. Pacific, and also facilitate (moderate, own) over 100 professional development groups and K-12 classrooms. Every other Saturday I start at 10 and help teachers collaborate with others within (and beyond Tapped In). I've been involved with Epals, TakingItGlobal, Nabuur and a number of other sites that engender Global Project Based Learning.
If you are interested in the above, please feel free to contact me and work with me.
