  • Hi Nellie, I have a question! how can I add a link into a Web Resources template? I tried to add some on my user page, but it's not working, if I add links in brackets, it still shows {{{1}}}.I need your username to access your page. Thank you. --Nellie Deutsch 12:47, 1 April 2009 (UTC)Hi Nellie, excuse-me I forgot to sign: --Nadia Kharoua 08:16, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Hi Nellie, Its great fun,am learning everyday a new thing. I thnk its going to help me a lot in developing a project for WE later on. This workshop actually seems complementary to the one I am already part of (eL4C24). When I applied for this one I had no idea what I'll be learning here, but now I am feeling that it was a must for me to register for this 5 day workshop. --Anubha Das30 March 2009 Glad to have you in this workshop, too. --Nellie Deutsch 12:34, 30 March 2009 (UTC)


  • I really like the straightforward and simple language used in the tutorials. Very accessible.
  • I am confused that http://www.wikieducator.org/EL4C21 has entries for 'advanced participants' that are not referenced in the Instructions for the Day. Have I missed something?
    • Victoria, you are in the 5-day workshop (eL4C24) and eL4C21 is a 10-day workshop. However, you are very welcome to also follow the course layout for eL4C24. Does that help?
      • No. I am even more confused now. All my email is for el4C21, I have nothing from 24.--Victoria Spagnolo 03:11, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
      • I think I understand now. Still don't know what link I followed to get here...--Victoria Spagnolo 08:59, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I would like to know more about what happens to 'stuff' that is uploaded. How to delete/edit/modify/find other uploads. Maybe this is in another tutorial?
  • I am slightly confused about when to put in my sig using the ~~~~ and when not to. It seems that this is automatically put in when adding to a discussion page. Again, have I missed something? My User Page 02:19, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
    • You can use your signature by going into preferences (top tab) and adding your real name. --Nellie Deutsch 12:40, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Hi Nellie, Yes, that would be wonderful. But I am concerned that I am already not meeting the expectations of my current roles. You should know that I have been unsuccessful at creating an account at wizIQ, and have sent an email to their support. And can you tell me how to make Activity templates thinner? Can the top and bottom margins be adjusted? --Victoria Spagnolo 08:50, 3 April 2009 (UTC)


  • I would really like to join in on the online discussion, but Saturday - Monday I will be busy; my sister from the U.S. is visiting and I will be showing her around Switzerland. I would love to hear feedback from the meeting, though.
    • There will be a recording of the session and feedback here.
  • In regards to The Paradox of Control and a Paradigm Shift, I feel that everything Randy is saying is true. However, I have not personally benefited from having people contribute to my work (because I haven't posted a OEC page yet!), so I do not know how much this collaboration happens. I am very interested to see how many people will be actively involved in this process once I figure out what educational content I will create.
    • Erica, it took me a long time to figure out what content I wanted to add, but once I started I couldn't stop. It is very engaging. --Nellie Deutsch 12:40, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Please see Pilot Projects.--Gladys Gahona 18:02, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

I was in a Wiki workshop before well i got to learn new interesting stuff then. Now am adding on what i learned last time, its getting more intersting though similar. What i have added on now is doing my own OER in my userpage which i didnot do last time. It came at atime when iwas really excited to spread the knowledge about TLUD . What i may need more is how to organise and make the material more meaning full. --carly 11:04, 3 April 2009 (UTC) My interesting pages? i should say where all interesting . Each has a different template and organization to borrow from. When i looked through i went straight to Community Media/FARM RADIO/New Page Test it caught my eye having what i wanted in mind it was connect i got excited i just clicked on any community media till i noticed the most edit and visited them wondering why? I like Community Media/Content since its template has a number of different links for the things involved including the podcast,publications ,community radio links everything is viewed once accessibly and it has similar content which would be used in ours. However it's a bit complicated to create . Community Media is also nice and it seems to be the next edited The most community media edited is Community Media/Content and the least are so many like Community Media/Glossary/M,Community Media/Learning Resources

I had a look at Victoria's page of Spanish preparation it was nice with the table. borrowed leaf from Erica suggestions and feedback the males are not working huh

I would use the history page in the future absolutely, since its an editing site of collaborative writing some might edit the page with some unneeded info or an old info may be needed after an afterthought. Or a malice can be done all the infor removed it can be brought back. --carly 12:14, 3 April 2009 (UTC)


How can i add color, color words and vertical lines and table to my page?
Hi Carolyn - on Gita Mathur's Pagae. There were some very interesting tips and tutorials on colours - I must go back and check them out too ! --Helend

Comments from Day 4

Here are some comments in regards to the statistics, history and recent changes section.

  • The Community Media page has many, many edits. It seems that these edits, though, are predominantly between two people who are going back and forth (like a dialogue).
    • Pages with the most edits / history seem to be the most advanced and comprehensive. This is no surprise, though. It is obvious that the most work is being done and thought is beingn put into the pages with the most changes.
  • The hyperlinks in the history section could be very useful. It's nice to see who is making edits on the page.
    • When you know who is involved with a page, it will be easy to go to their page and contact them directly, or even get ideas from them, and the active users are (most likely) the most advanced!
  • In going to Gita Mathur's page, I found an extremely well developed and obviously dedicated WikiEducator user. Her page is extremely comprehensive and has a ton of resources for people to use. She is very inspiring! Erica.layer 12:29, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
    • I agree. Gita and her page are both inspirational. --Nellie Deutsch 09:59, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Yes thanks for the link Erica - Gita's page is a real eye-opener to what you can do on wikieducator. I really liked the way she presented her love of colours, with tutorials too. When I'm better at this, I'll go back. Right now, I've got to sort out my sub-pages mess :)

Wow wow Day 4 has been very great for me . I have found things i needed for our Open Distance Learning Network the community radio operations , workshop material content upload and how its organized. These is really great am seeing stuff we want to do already done these will guard me , i sure took some snaps to present these evening in the meeting of what we have to do . Now we are getting deep into the community media workshop! Nellie, Gladys should it end so soon i feel its the beginning now of what i was looking for.

  • Carolyn, The workshop is just the starting point of a pleasing journey of discovering, reflectioning, collaborating, learning, then... creating. Enjoy it!. Cheers. --Gladys Gahona 05:13, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

I would like to thank my very special co-facilitator, Gladys Gahona, and all the participants of eL4C24 for making this workshop a wonderful learning experience. I am looking forward to our continued collaboration. Let's keep a watch on each others' pages. I would like to add, that the wonderful thing about collaborative learning is that the blurred line between learner and teacher. Everyone is a learner on Wikieducator. As a veteran teacher of the public school system, I find collaborative learning a wonderful change from the old traditional format. --Nellie Deutsch 14:02, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Nellie, I am very honored to be your co-facilitator. Working and learning together is such a fascinating experience!! --Gladys Gahona 05:21, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
