My Learning 4 Content Workshop Showcase
Here are My Sandbox exhibits
My objective of joining eL4C33 Workshop is to collaborate with National and Global Educators and foster Quality Open Content Movement. I started this workshop thinking that I can fulfill all the workshop requirements easily. But, once I began to follow daily instructions, I found it’s difficult to cope with my office workload and workshop obligations.
As a participant of Moodle Workshop, I experienced how challenging it is for Nellie and Gladys to retain our learning fervor. So, determined to complete all Learning Tasks and Learning Activities required to become a WikiBuddy. Got totally immersed in the Workshop and attained WikiArtisan status, double promotion from Wiki Apprentice. Credit goes to Nellie and Gladys, my workshop facilitators.
|Here is the summary of my learning tasks and activities completed day-wise.
Day 1 - 14 December 20090 was not that hectic. Completed few general tasks:
- Completed newbie survey
- Set my Preferences
- Edited my Infobox
- Signed My Learning Contract, but forgot to mail to facilitators!!!
Day 2- 15 December 2009, started playing with My Sandbox. But, got totally involved and devoted most of my time on practicing in detail each Learning Activity.
- Introduced myself and replied to Gladys and Nellie and captured the syntax from Nellie's UserPage to change font color. But, used different color code.
- Formatted text and experimented various features, viz.,
- bold, italics, bold & italics
- font color and face
- line break
- Bullets & numbers
- Used heading levels
- Created a new page INFOSEEK and experimented the following:
- Font color
- Font face
- Line break
- Creating link to an existing WikiEducator page
- Inserting image (Information Literacy Logo), aligning center
Day 3 - 16 December 2009
- WiZiQ recording was helpful in using syntax for Internal links and External links and piped pages, and also uploading images and other media files.
- Experimented with the syntax Image:file_name|type|location|size|caption
- Aligned images
- Framed images
- Uploaded a pdf file
- Added box Cape Town OED in my Infobox, lots of confusion in using curly braces
Day 4 - 17 December 2009
- Practiced collaborative editing
- Identified recent changes, history (comparing two versions)
- Communicated and interacted
Day 5 - 18 December 2009
- iDevices quite useful for structuring and designing pedagogicaly-sound OERs
- Used Objectives and Summary devices
- Added a sub-page List of Publications
- Joined as WikiEducator Ambassdor at India node and opened a discussion thread in My Talk Page to avoid red mark/link
This is my learning itinerary from WikiApprentice Level 1 to WikiArtisan. Aiming at next level/s !!!
Looking forward to collaborating with WikiEducators, who wish to promote Open Content Movement. If interested, please drop your message here
