Jump to: navigation, search

Hi, I liked the WE Notes, which are great tool for microblog. I am creating a page on problem based learning where collboration like WE Notes can be helpful. Can you guide me please. --Ravi limaye 08:52, 17 February 2012 (UTC) http://wikieducator.org/User:User is my present page . The outline required for Problem based learning is: -Problem is defined -Groups collborate to pen down the known facts and for unknown facts they find resources and provide links -WE Notes can be a great tool for interactivity for that group -Subsequently the final report emerges as another wiki page. Do guide me. --Ravi limaye 08:52, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

WEnotes is a bit of an experiment at this stage, and isn't really ready for widespread adoption. As an alternative, I would recommend using identi.ca alone. That has the advantage that you start with a clearly defined Creative Commons license on all of the posts. There is a Widget that you can use on a page to bring in all of the identi.ca activity for a particular tag. There is an example on the OERu page.

Another alternative is the LiquidThreads feature that is built in to WikiEducator. The discussion page of every page allows threaded replies... which may be helpful in following the chain of message and responses in a group that is working asynchronously. Users have the option of having new messages mailed to them (by setting the LQTemail option on the Gadgets page of their preferences.
