Searching for Content on WikiEducator and the Community Media node

We recommend using Google Search - put in the following keywords: "WikiEducator" "Community Media" and the Media Type (i.e., radio, TV/Video, and even the Organization that you know, or think created the materials. You will likely get a nice list.

As you find the materials you are looking for, please make a note of it...and even link to is on your User Page, or your Organization's Home Page within WikiEducator Community Media Node (see Organisation and Navigation (below).

Organisation & Navigation

Within the Community Media space (i.e., www.wikieducator.org/Community_Media please create a new page, using your Organization as the name for the new page. Do this in CAPITAL LETTERS if you like. (i.e., http://www.wikieducator.org/Community_Media/MAARA} This is referred to as your Organization's Home Page. (on this page, please be sure to include the Community_Media Navigation template}

Please put in some brief information about your organization (2-3 paragraphs, including your Organization's interests, contact people and interests / collaboration interests). Then, have a List of Resource Materials - with linked topics or subjects.

Adding Course Content and Learning Materials

When you are ready to add the actual content and resources, then make a new page, AFTER your Organization's name (i.e., http://www.wikieducator.org/Community_Media/MAARA/New_page (Note the use of the Underscore to create spaces between words).

Then, you can have a nice way to set up your courses. (There will be information about creating a template for easier navigation among the course content).

Be sure to create a List of Resources Materials on your Organization's Home Page, and then deep link this list to the titles that your Organisation has created.
