Yesterday, last week...

Only the curious will learn and only the resolute will overcome the obstacles to learning. The quest quotient has always excited me more than the intelligence quotient.
.. Edmund S. Wilson (1895-1972) U.S. author, literary and social critic.

Education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire.
.. William B. Yeats, poet

Education: Being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't. It's knowing where to go to find out what you need to know; and it's knowing how to use the information once you get it.
.. William Feather

WikiEducator Collections

--Vtaylor 13:22, 29 June 2008 (UTC) : Sometimes there is an "Add article" link in my collection box, sometimes not. I'm trying to make a WikiEducator "cheat sheet" so I want to include some of my own pages and some of the Special pages - which don't get the "add article" link. Help:Collections/Bug reports‎

Also - the process for adding to and saving an existing Collection is error prone - requires retyping an existing name and saving in the right panel. It would be nice to have a save button in the left panel to save the current list with the modifications.

I was surprised to find that the "saved" collection didn't reflect new additions. I had also created several Collections because I had used a different name in the right panel to save while trying to figure out how this worked.

Nice feature and I really want to use it a lot! I think this could be a huge "value add" - allowing "collectors" to discover great content and publish collections with reviews, comments, ratings, ... The problem with OER isn't the availability of content - it is already there. It's a problem to find the good stuff and use it. This is where Collections will provide an invaluable service. Collectors will build reputations in their areas of expertise. Users know they can trust the collectors recommendations, limiting their search to a manageable set of OER content. Then OER adoption will accelerate.

Resource Status

For my own work, I need to designate a "status" (this may not be the right term) to wiki pages / articles, either individually or in groups.

Invitation to collaborate. Help and feedback are welcome. See discussion page.
