Suggestion in line with the Google Discussion
Yes I do think that there are distinctive phases or degrees of completion. I suspect that these will correspond with the generic phases of the learning design process, for example:
- Design plan or blueprint for development completed, which could include, for example:
- a Brief analysis of the intended target audience
- Teaching objectives specified
- Planned structure of the resource completed
- ContentInfobox inserted on the main page
- Request or invitation for feedback on the resource posted
- Resource completed and ready for QA review
- All content completed in accordance with the design plan above (Content Design)
- Navigation templates inserted (Visual Design)
- Images, figures and graphs uploaded (Visual Design)
- Editorial comments and suggestions from the community incorporated into the resource
- QA review completed
- Content validity / reliability reviewed
- Educational Design (i.e. Visual elements, pedagogy etc reviewed)
This is just a tentative example / suggestion to show how we could link generic phases with concrete outputs.
I agree --- the pride in completing a resource (or requesting certification for wiki skills attained) is a powerful motivator and also a vehicle for individuals to be recognized in the community.
Appreciate the inputs ... thanks!
