Feedback and notes from my WikiNeighbours

  • Hello Supten! If would be great to hear your experiences as to what was most beneficial to you in learning the wiki skills necessary to contribute to WE. --Benjamin Stewart 13:38, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

(Comment.gif: Hello Supten and great start on your user page! I encourage you to visit the requirements of becoming a WikiApprentice 1 and WikiApprentice 2, as we are here to help you achieve these goals. Feel free to contact me directly if I can be of any assistance. --Benjamin Stewart 13:09, 21 July 2010 (UTC) (UTC))

  • Supten, have you given any thought as to a project you'd like to work on? --Benjamin Stewart 16:45, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Benjamin, can there be a project to make WE more user-friendly? I am quite at a loss to navigate through the site as the pages are not conventional ones like in Wikipedia, Citizendium, Wikidocs or Medpedia. Blended Learning and Handbook of Open Universities pages looks appealing to me. Blended Online Learning could be a useful page that I have created as a part of today's exercise. Supten 09:46, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Hello Supten. There are many ways that you can contribute, all which can lead to WE being more user friendly. Consider the following:

      • Visit the Content page (direct link located on WE main page).
      • Visit the Projects page (direct link located on WE main page).
      • Consider doing Research (direct link located on WE main page).
      • Choose from a list of things to do as well as participate in open discussions in Google Groups.
      • Become a Wiki Ambassador and be responsible for projects that add to the user friendliness of WE.

    • These are some ideas that come to my and you are encouraged to take advantage of the live sessions we are offering in order to promote your ideas and thoughts. If you would like to have a Skype session, I can personally show you a bit how WE is organized and how to navigate to content of interest. --Benjamin Stewart 14:07, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

  1. Notice the change I made to your infobox. --Benjamin Stewart 16:24, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

  1. Supten, get certified as a WikiApprentice 1 today by adding the following: bold text, italics, headings and subheadings, and lists. If you need any assistance, feel free to contact me or one of your facilitators for assistance. --Benjamin Stewart 23:57, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Ben for your support. As per the requirements perhaps I am already eligible for Apprentice-2 level and would be eligible for becoming a WikiBuddy before the end of this Conference! :-) Supten 03:25, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Hello Supten, I am one of the co-facilitators. I really like your idea for a wikiEd project. You have mastered templates excellently I see in the Blended Online Learning page. I have recently started using this approach myself. You might be interested in some of the material at: - See the code I have added after your signature to stop the colour "running on". :) --Bronwynh 05:44, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Bronwyn! Supten 11:26, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

(Comment.gif: Hello, I am happy to visit your page on seeing your request for higher certification. It is nice to have a person with your expertise on WE. I look forward to reading your contributions to OER's here. Warm wishes--Dr. Gita Mathur 09:46, 28 July 2010 (UTC))

Hi Supten, a wonderful page you have here. I suggest you put a small link to one main content development page you are working on in your contract section. That way, you cna be awarded with a WikiBuddy certification very soon. Let us know if you need any further assistance. --Victor P. K. Mensah 06:06, 29 July 2010 (UTC) (Co-Facilitator)
