  • Presentation pending.

Workshop requirements

  • We are required to aim at a minimum of 47 registered participants.

Let's go further

  • I believe we can manage up to 150 active participants. --Gladys Gahona C. 20:58, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

To do List

  • Promote the workshop outside
  • Verify links
  • Check spelling and grammar
  • Review contents on Workshop Schedule. Feel free to add relevant content.
  • Delegate tasks.
  • Create live online events.

Populating Participants' User Pages

A simple method for populating a user page with the welcome template, categories, and headings is to add:

{{subst:EL4C user page|Name=EL4C31}}

subst and Name are required to directly substitute the content into the user page and select the correct welcome template. A suggestion for the summary text is as follows:

Created with Template:EL4C user page. Questions should be directed to your eL4C facilitator.

For more information see Template:EL4C user page and the caution below.


Before adding any content to a linked user page, make sure it corresponds to the correct user account. Click on "my contributions" link (in registered participants table), there must be at least one of the following edition line:
Variable Date - variable Time - (hist) (diff) Learning4Content/Workshops/Online schedule/eL4C31/Register ‎
This edit confirms the user registered to the workshop.
Excellent work, Rob. --Nellie Deutsch 22:28, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Interwiki links

  • I have added a page on interwiki links to Tutorial 5. Comments, additions, typo fixes are all welcome. Rob Kruhlak 19:56, 27 October 2009 (UTC)


  • Since participants are required to create an account before registering to the workshop (see page Register), I don't see the need to teach this topic on Day 2, I rather propose to teach them how to personalize preferences. What do you think? -Gladys Gahona C. 15:30, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
    • Which preferences were you thinking of covering? Rob Kruhlak 20:47, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Those contained in "User profile" and "Date and time" tabs, we can suggest to keep the rest untouched until they get familarized with the system.--Gladys Gahona C. 21:10, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I don't see we have a WikiEd tutorial for preferences. WE can:
  • Develop one or
  • Develop a help page
  • I did not find one either. A help page might be the best place to start ... Things that might be useful for newbies:
  • E-mail options (I don't remember what the defaults are any more).
  • E-mail (under User Profile)
  • What about this help page? Help:My_preferences. I put screenshots of my personal account for exemplification, they can be edited anytime of course. --Gladys Gahona C. 21:03, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Ideas for engaging participants in Wiki Discussions

  • Discussions first start at Google groups. eL4C mailing list. Newbies are not familiar with wiki edition.
  • From day 3 we should encourage participants to start adding to wiki discussions.

Comments from Other Facilitators

Gladys, it is really awesome that you have created a page for workshop facilitators to be on the same page. I commend you. Some things are so obvious that you don't do them! Warm wishes--Patricia 03:07, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

I agree with Patricia. --Nellie Deutsch 04:57, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Thank you ladies for your kind words :-)
