December 2008

For December 2008 the featured user page is that of Gita Mathur. The reason can be summed up in a single word, and that word is colours! Or, as she puts it: colours! There more to it than that, of course, like her excellent use of imagery and how she gives good information about her research interests and background. But those colours are really nice!

November 2008

This month's award goes to Leigh Blackall, one of the brightest WikiEducators in our community. We have no doubt about his abilities and his unwavering determination to make this community an exemplary lot of talented people. His work in forums and wikis requires neither proof nor corroboration. That said, we didn't award him a UPE just because he's a stand up guy, but because his user page was the first one to experiment with videos, and because he's one of the few people who have addressed the RSS issue and incorporated it in his user page. Please congratulate Leigh for being this month's User Page Expo Award Winner. Godspeed Leigh!

October 2008

This month award goes to Barbara Dieu for innovative use of audio introduction on her user page. Incorporation of media player in a wiki is a novel thing that we have come across on WikiEducator. She speaks different languages and adds to our community's diversity. Congratulations to her on this achievement. You can have a look on her page at Barbara Dieu.

This month our featured UPE award goes to probably one of favorites of most WikiEducators. Her user page is as sweet and beautiful as herself as a person. Color scheme, usage of wiki syntax, proper classification of topics, video incorporation and content is what got her this month's featured user page award. There is a general expectation that people from COL are supposed to be at the top of WE because it's their project, and most of the time they don't get thanked for that. Let's break the tradition and congratulate Patricia Schlicht for this achievement!

August 2008

Second Award goes to Victor Mensah. Creation, intuitive design and clarity are what got him this month's award. I love the tables. It's lovely you can steal markup on WE :D

The first award goes to Dennis Doe, whose page is truly a synthesis of form and function. Sometimes animated images can be distracting, but Dennis's seems to be enough without being too much -- it's friendly and inviting. The templates he uses for links are a good idea worth emulating, and he makes good use of different visual separations of different content. And we love those rounded corners. Smooooth.
