  • Good start, keep working here & you will soon reach certifications--Dr. Gita Mathur 17:52, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • (Comment.gif: Hi Elizabeth, Cheers! You just got your first certification. Now fill up your info box and learning contract. I am watching your progress.--Dr. Gita Mathur 07:59, 27 July 2010 (UTC))
  • When I click on the insert /edit link, then nothing happens and I do not know where to write the Learning4Content.None of the rich text buttons work. Please help. thanks
  • Re: Hi Elizabeth, If you do not see the edit buttons, it means you are not logged in. Click on the 'Log in" on top right of your page & enter username & password in the relevant boxes. Your name should be on top of the page near the human icon if you are logged in. Hope this will solve your problem. Click on the 'Edit' button on right of the section you want to edit. Learning contract is the table/box just above this Feedback section.--Dr. Gita Mathur 01:58, 29 July 2010 (UTC) Thanks but my name is there so I am logged on but still nothing happens.
  • Re: Hi Elizabeth, The fact that you could leave this note means that your edits are working. I think you are clicking on Insert/Edit on your desktop & not Userpage. To insert a file or image you have to Upload it to WE server. So, click on 'Upload file' button on the left under toolbox. See if this helps.--Dr. Gita Mathur 03:27, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
  • (Comment.gif: Hi, It would be nice if you fill up your Learning Contract in the above box. Click on the 'edit' on right of 'My optional community service (learning contract) project' and fill the details. --Dr. Gita Mathur 01:31, 30 July 2010 (UTC))

* Hello Elizabeth, as your Group C facilitator, it is a pleasure for me to see that you have developed such a nice userpage. I look forward to reading your contributions here. Warm wishes--Dr. Gita Mathur 13:30, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
