Hello everyone.... I am Zaynah Toofany and I am from Mauritius.

I work as educator in a college. Teaching has always been my hobby, this is why I have chosen it as career too. Teaching involves communication, sharing of knowledge and coaching. It is a very motivating field and it is a great thing to be able to people in their career or even in life.

I joined WikiEducator in order to enrich my skills and knowledge about wikis and also for online collaboration. This experience will also enable me to assist people and help them to learn online.

I am very glad to join WikiEducator and I am sure this will be a very great experience.

My Educational Background

Books-aj.svg aj ashton 01f

I have done a Degree in Information Systems (just graduated this year), and currently I am doing a MSc Educational Technologies Course. Both at the University of Mauritius.


My Interests

Well, I am a great fan of technologies and computers. I like reading and watching IT magazines, learning about the new trends happening in the technological field. As sports, I like mainly automobile sports. And of course, I like outings and adventuring out in the nature, going out to the seaside, and visiting places.

This is my sandbox, which is of great help to me while practicing the various tutorials.

My Wiki Project

For the wikiproject I am interested in doing A beginner's Computing Course where people of any age group will have the opportunity to get the knowledge pertaining to what is Computing actually. I think this is going to help learners since Computing is becoming increasingly important these days. The wikiproject will consist of both theory explanations and some exercises for learners to practice and test what they have learnt. This wikiproject will help us to understand wiki even more.

By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. 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.

  • Zaynah, Welcome to WikiEducator, and congratulations. I just certified you as a Wiki Apprentice Level 1. You have demonstrated many more than the required skills, although one in particular is missing...I wasn't able to find where you used auto-numbering. When you get a chance, please add this to your sandbox (use the button to the left of bullets in the rich editor). I think you are ready to move to level 2, so I'll stop back soon to check on your progress. Cheers, --Alison Snieckus 17:12, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Congrats Zaynah.... quick progress. All the best so that you are certified a Wikibuddy soon. You have the potential to take you right up to the Wikiartisan level too.God bless!... Cynthia --Agnes 01:59, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
