Hi Ainsworth and friends,

I think this section of your part is redundant coz the wiki will automatically generate the table of contents which is already a kind of outline to the unit you are writing.

I disagree mohammed. The table of contents outlines what IS in the page.

That section outlines the Concepts. It could be redundant, but It should only be removed if when the modules is finished there is perfect 1-to-1 agreement

I see your point - the Concepts structure would lend itself well to individual tutorials under the methods of delivery section. As I've suggested elsewhere - the timing may be right to have a general discussion on developing layout/stylesheet guidelines for the project. This will help with consistency across the development. A very productive week. Well done!


This page is simple and boring (no color etc..)

Which means there is little room for wiki syntax mistakes. this is good as visuals can be added later, but really it is a bit boring ... c'mon ainsworth ... add a splash of color!!

In this section, you are talking about synchrounous and asynchronous 'modes' of delivery. And then you define these terms as asynchronous and synchronous 'learning'. Dont you think the term learning is not appropriate here? I would suggest 'mode' or 'delivery' as alternative terms if that is okay with u.

I also think your table needs some kind of aesthetic 'reengineering'. This will help improve the page. I also need to appraise the good overview you made of most if not all possible forms of delivery that are possible.

It is also worth mentioning which ones are currently the most used and predilected ones!.

I suggest that you writa a statement or two explaining the importance of your table --Shokahle 07:27, 16 March 2007 (CET)

I notice that there is a direct quotation, but there is no source. Is this information from open source? My understanding is that you need to give a reference.--Pbenn 07:26, 16 March 2007 (CET)

I suggest you define some of the terminology you have used like ICQ,IRC..etc(may be a "terminology" section would be helpful --Nadhiya 07:38, 16 March 2007 (CET)

You have a lot of very useful information in this section, and I think that it would be a good idea to make it a little bit more user friendly. Here are some suggestions. 1. Under methods of delivery, put the brief descriptions of the delivery methods (This means that you may have to include a heading "Description of delivery methods" in the Methods of Delivery in the Content section 2. Try not to repeat information E.g. you discussed print at the beginning and you discussed it later in the document. This information could have been combined. 3. Make a table showing the advantages and disadvantages --Pbenn 08:01, 16 March 2007 (CET)

Learner Support

Hi folks,

I have some interesting information that u may find ok about learner support frameworks. I made some changes on your page. I will upload a diagram and put it on the page also. I also create a references section to cross reference with work going in the area

Overall Content

Commendations are certainly in order for this team for :

  1. covering the information in thorough manner taking great pains to include all relevant details characteristic of the conglamoration of knowledge, cultures and experiences,
  2. resourcefulness in the demonstration of well researched, appropriate examples and case studies,
  3. demonstrating a wide knowledge and understanding of the materials explored through the completion of all eleven (11) tutorials,
  4. going beyond the insights gained in the tutorials to create not just an organizational chart but also a table, and
  5. being original.

Wiki Syntax

In addition to what everyone has already said, we also want to commend you on the excellent work. However the use of bullets would help to make reading points easier.

Headings could also stand out.

Great Job guys.

Good wiki-ing... --Curofficer 07:36, 16 March 2007 (CET) on behalf of Group 1


Is it by design or default that your good unit does not have exercises and summary --Shokahle 07:43, 16 March 2007 (CET)

Advantages and Disadvantages

I suggest that you put the information in a table (3 columns with column headings as "Method of delivery","Advantages" and "disadvantages",so that it is more clear and easy to grasp. --Nadhiya 07:44, 16 March 2007 (CET)

Tremendous!!Rich information here. --Nadhiya 07:59, 16 March 2007 (CET)
