COMMUNITY PORTAL

Things to do

  • Create more general use templates like these and document how to use them in the Wikieducator tutorial
  • Identify content pages requiring images by using the Image needed template
  • Reduce the number of pages in the Needs Categorisation category.
  • Help us find free content images on the Pages needing images list.
  • Apply to work on a Bounty.
  • Provide feedback on our draft Governance Policy by posting on the talk page.
  • Help us design and restructure access to WikiEducator content on the Ideas4Content Page
  • Visit our Wishlist page for a growing list of community needs.
  • Develop new design templates that standardize the input of newly designed materials to a certain point, giving it a unique WikiEducator look. These templates allow for add-ons to support the developer's uniqueness, so leave some room for individuality.
  • Develop a style guide for WikiEducator similar to that of Wikipedia.
  • Establish a editorial board for Wikieducator (or will this be part of the WE Council's duties).
  • Establish a rotating and/or changing Pool of Quality Reviewers (instructional designer pool), who would assure the quality of uploaded materials and that its set standards are met.
  • Develop a software that allows photos in the Wiki to be resized directly in the Wiki.
  • Develop additional pedagogical templates as the scope is limited.
  • Create a navigation tool that allows to navigate from one page to the next without using the "back" or "Forward" button.
  • Browse around WikiEducator and learn what this wiki is about, and how it can benefit you and how you can use it and contribute to it so as to help benefit others.

Check out Template:CA , Template:FA , Template:Commons , Template:Image needed , Template:Content_infobox and Template:Feedback (this is now also embedded in Pedagogical Templates as a parameter]] ); and Template:WIP has a new look. Note that some of these are still in development.

    Note to Template creators

    Please try to include some usage instructions under your template using the "noinclude" tags, or in the Templates talk page and add to the Templates or Tools category. Cheers. brent 00:00, 27 May 2007 (CEST)
