Hi folks,

This is looking quite good. There are some necessary changes to pull it into the A range.



Your page contains spelling errors. To improve it, please spell check. If you use Firefox, it contains a spell checker. Alternatively, edit the entire page, copy and paste the content into a word processing document, fix the spelling (being careful not to change any formats in the document, and then paste it back into the wiki. Don't forget to save your changes! Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Spell}}''from your page.

Duplicate handouts[edit]

You seem to have 2 versions of each handout. I like the thumbnailed links; keep those and delete the other word links to the handouts. Before you delete the word links, navigate to those handouts and add this tag to each page: {{Delete}}. This will encourage a WE administrator to delete those files and save server space.

Copyright issue[edit]

The sneeze image needs to have copyright information added. I can't tell if it is a copyrighted image or not. Navigate to the image page you have made on Wiki Educator; edit, and add links back to the source of the image along with a copy of any copyright/licensing information from the source. Without this information I will need to delete the image.


Formatting links[edit]

There are a few ways to create links to external web sites in the wiki.

Descriptive option for use in text[edit]

The best type of link for most situations includes a description of the linked site. This description appears as the title of the link e.g. Useful Web Site. To create a link like this just type a link and the description, separated by a space and enclosed in single square brackets: [ Useful Web Site]. This will create a link to the Useful Web Site that appears like this: Useful Web Site and should be used in conjunction with the full citation in literature cited.

Footnote format[edit]

Enclosing the link in single square brackets without providing a description: [] ...will display the link as a number in brackets, like this: [1]. This format looks like a footnote and it should be used in conjunction with numbered full citations in literature cited.

For your citations section[edit]

Type in the full URL for the link: The wiki treats this text as a link like this: and will display full web address. Use this format in your citations section so that users can work from a printout if needs be; avoid using this format in the main text of your lesson. This material adapted from here Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Links}}''from your page.

The reason for full links in the citations section is that some people will print this handout and use it. The full-text links will be useful at that point.


Final Edits[edit]

Some tags were automatically added to your new page when it was established. Once you have made changes in response to the editorial suggestions you should remove them. Once they have been removed your assignment will be graded.

Tags to remove[edit]

Edit your page; turn off the rich text option and remove the following pieces of text: ''{{WIP}}'' ''{{S@W}}'' Once those tags have been removed, it will signal to others that you have made your contribution, and that they are welcome to modify your page and improve upon it.

Common mistakes section[edit]

If you have not already removed this section, do so now.
