I'm not sure what I think of LT yet. Sort of a regression in threaded discussion, why not just incorporate the worlds best threaded discussion we already have?

I must say though I have read a lot of discussion on Wikipedia over the past months, ever since I made my first tentative edit. The thread I was reading yesterday was on Drupal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Drupal  :-)

That's it from me. I have a confession. When I started this (at 3.00am in the morning last week as I headed for the airport) it was here in LT I thought I was supposed to be writing. Some of my chicken scratching comments are there, but no-one noticed them.

Derekc (talk)10:19, 19 October 2007

Hi Derek ...

It's a tough call - a Wiki is a wiki and it shouldn't try to grow up into something which it isn't. In that sense - the Wiki shouldn't try to replicate successful technologies like threaded discussion.

The challenge we were facing in WikiEducator - is that many new users were finding it difficult to communicate in a unstructured environment. Newbies were Folk were not sure where to place their reponses, how to start new discussions, forgetting to sign posts, not sure how to indent etc.

LQT has another interesting feature derived from the wiki way - namely the feature of archiving posts - which will encourage the community to remain actively engaged by writing these summaries. We'll see how this works.

LQT is very much still a standard wiki page - you can edit my post! (This of course will be duly recorded in the history.). LQT uses the standard wiki syntax which useful when discussing syntax etc.

For me LQT should be judged in terms of making it easier for folk to communicate within the wiki rather than comparing it to other dedicated technologies.

Testing, testing, testing...


At first glance, not being used to using threaded discussions, I'd say LT is an effective way to keep focused for a specific topic. Let's use it and see.

Now to go off-topic, it was great meeting you again, at the RCS luncheon (a bit formal, but there we are). Your talk went down very well. I know that my friend, Deborah, was impressed enough to put your name forward at the Judiciary Educational Committee as a presenter at one of the upcoming seminars for judges the committee organizes.

We are trying to be effective WikiAmbassadors...

Thanks for a lively lunchtime.


Tippen (talk)10:22, 19 October 2007

LQT is a great improvement on what we had before in terms of structuring discussions.

RE the RCS luncheon - I really enjoyed chatting about WikiEd. Wow - its great to have such effective WikiAmbassadors on our side! I'd love to chat about the project at the Judiciary Educational Committee.

Hope my "radical" views were not too lively <smile>

Mackiwg (talk)10:22, 19 October 2007

I like the idea of Liquid Threads, it makes it easy to follow, and contribute to, a specific discussion topic.

Linda (talk)10:45, 19 October 2007

I share the same opinion as Linda. Liquid Threads simplify the communication and encourage "virtual talking"

Mbjohnson (talk)15:56, 6 June 2008

Yeah, me too. It's easy to post new discussion threads. But I would also like to develop together with our school's Computer teachers a website for our school which we could also use for posting our online lessons or modules or which we could make into a virtual learning environment. I need trainings on developing a software for teaching Philippine Geography, History and Government for online classes using Moodle or maybe Blackboard or other platforms for e-learning.

Cecille2274 (talk)22:28, 18 June 2009

Liquid threads are a great way of communicating in an environment to build up content through consensus. The ideas of all participants are available for comment, and new discussions can easily be made from existing treads. The threads are easy to follow and it is very easy to stay on topic.

Brendah (talk)07:46, 1 November 2010

Yes, i agree with Sanjaya. There is alot of potential of negotiating open content materials in a collaborative environment. Open content can travel well and have no borders or restrictions. When such type of material is developed and posted, people are free to use them and tailor them according to the way they want to use them in a classroom situation. In this case, users won't have a trouble of copyright issues. Though the material developed is open to everyone, quality material is needed to be put on open portal.


Mutuzana (talk)23:29, 18 May 2010

I find LQT (official abreviation of liquid threads) somewhat like keeping notes on a debate. I guess you have to read all of them just to stay in topic since there are no headings for different discussions. Or does it mean that you open a new page each time the discussion drifts?

Berardo (talk)04:54, 20 October 2007

You can add headings wherever you want[edit]

Though normally a heading would be created at the start of a new thread. :-)

Eloquence (talk)04:54, 20 October 2007

So... I read the discussion and finally got that LT is liquid thread.... I'll keep reading...

Reflecting (talk)10:14, 21 October 2007

It gets confusing when there are two acronyms used for the same word. Can we come up with one acronym for LiquidThread? Is it LQT or LT?

Well done! <smile> - we've really got to try harder not to speak with acronyms.

Sorry about that.

Mackiwg (talk)08:39, 20 October 2007

Right! The same happened to me. I was wondering all the time what "LT" was till I came to this post. Finally I could find out it stands for "Liquid Thread". I had read about it somewhere before but I couldn't associate right away.

It seems that WikiEducator's discussion forum was not as good as it is now with LT. I must say I found it a bit confusing but once you get used to it, you'll find it easy to grasp. At first, it was not very clear to me who the author of the post was.

Joao (talk)10:14, 21 October 2007

Hi Joao,

Following your comment related with the usability of "LT", I found the use of different colours a little bit confusing.

This is all very interesting and new to me. But i think the LQT holds a lot of potential especially for someone new to the discussion to catch up and contribute positively rather than take the whole discussion backwards.

Sebastianmusonda (talk)19:17, 23 October 2007

Sebastiaan you make an interesting observation and I totally agree with you. I used LQT's in a learning environment before and it is very easy to come up to speed with the content of discussion and to make a contribution. The structure of the LQT's also allows the user to differentiate where the main discssion points are.

Mcebisi (talk)00:07, 23 November 2007

Mcebisi, how did you create the formating in your posting above? I can't see from looking at the source.

Leeming (talk)12:33, 6 January 2008

Hi David

The formatting used for the box is simply to leave a space preceding the text in the editing window.

This creates boxed text

This doesn't (no preceding space)

The format is typically used for highlighting lines of code or syntax instructions. It doesn't work well when wrapping paragraph text.


Mackiwg (talk)13:20, 6 January 2008

This has been a very exiting and interesting journey for some of us who are Newbies in this area of collaborative content development. However I find the text formating tools above inadequate as they do not contain all the basic formating tools. The use of a cheatsheet is very confusing to new entrants and I believe it requires that a more comprehensine formating tool set be developed to make working with wikies as simple as working on a wordprocesor application. That would actually make it more comfortable for ordinary content creators/writers who are non-technical to actually work with.

Good morning, Mac, if I might be so bold as to call you that. I believe I may have some right to do so since that was the name that my students and friends used to call me when I taught school here many years ago.

Testing a reply for OERNZ2. Can you suggest some good discussion pages to look at so I can see how they might be structured? Particularly any NZ ones. Will post this question on your talk page too.

 Just a test.

 Hi Wayne,

Not sure how to use your discussion page so I'm trying through here.  Usually you send us an email with the course tutorial for the day.  I haven't received mine.  I have been behind but caught up the work in the weekend.  I've enjoyed it.  

I'm not too concerned because I'll just continue with the next tutorial.

I wouldn't mind the next certification if I have met the requirements.  If there is anything I've missed please let me know.  I'm keen to advance.  I'm also keen to share this course with teachers at school once I've finished.  I think there is real merit in it.

Thanks for your time.

Hi, Iam Revathi Viswanathan, working in B.S.Abdur Rahman University. I really like the idea of sharing my views here. I am interested in doing a collaborative project, may be focusing on cultural aspects or on any other  topic.

Hi Sanjaya. I am looking for people to collaborate with, this course is one way I am using to network.

Llaws7 (talk)10:08, 7 June 2010

I'm replying to the discusssion thread for tutorial 8.  I like the ability to have a place to have a discussion with the originator of the information without having to edit their work.  The discussion could simply include words of encouragement or suggestions for change or a request for collaboration.  Very nice feature.  Sharon

Sharonarchibald (talk)14:28, 16 June 2010
This is a test reply. I find this thread very useful for teaching because learners can follow the development of a topic from the beginning to wherever they met it. It also makes it possible to follow the debate on a concept and saves teacher's time on explanations. Students will only reflect on what has been discussed in the thread. Abdulmalik eL4C38

Thank you for the tutorials and the opportunity to learn more about Wikis. Like many others I am running a bit behind ... but I am doing each tutorial. As a 'newbie' I tend to get lost a bit in this new environment but I appreciate the chance to try out my skills.

LiquidThreads software: Created by whom, when?

Dcordier (talk)14:24, 1 November 2010

LiquidThreads was originally written by David McCabe, partly as a Google Summer of Code project in 2006.

(You can find out about this sort of thing by visiting the Special:Version page which lists the extensions available on the wiki, each with a link to more information.)

October 2010 Test Threaded Discussion[edit]

Do great minds always think alike? ( A feeling of consensus and less divergent thinking I get with threaded discussions)

Thembi (talk)04:11, 5 November 2010

Perhaps, but there is always a counter argument and a collection of great minds should be able to find it. Tutorial 8 cheers--Reuben M Cutfield 00:52, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

This is so true. Teaching and Learning are an ongoing and lifelong process and wikieducator definitely provides a collaborative environment where we can and we are actually connecting and communicating with people around the world; while at the same time, encouraging reflection and discussion and creating further understanding through the use of new wiki skills. --Reen.redrose 16:11, 26 November 2010 (UTC) Reena Rajkomar 

Reen.redrose (talk)04:11, 27 November 2010

Wiki helps us to keep in touch with different people all around the world, despite the fact that we are not physically present. Our knowledge increases as time goes on, we become independent individuals, and more open minded. Through Wiki, we get to participate in a collaborative atmosphere, where learning forms a crucial part.

Wajiihahemambokus (talk)07:15, 27 November 2010

Very true, what I've learnt while working in teaching is that a collaborative atmosphere is a crucial part of meaningful learning as both the teacher and the learner come away from the experience enriched. Wikieducator displays the collaboration that early childhood teachers strive to each within centres on a world wide scale.
