Hi Radney,

couldn't participate in eL4C41 live sessions; viewed today's WiZiQ recording. glad to know that your are also interested in Information Literacy. Have you started a WE page on it? If not, I would like to share my WE page [Information Literacy]. seeking your valuable suggestions and input. --Dr. Indira Koneru 07:33, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi, Indira! I tried following the link and received an error message. I found what I think is the link from your user page and have edited your message to give that link. Could you verify the link in your message to make sure it's what you had intended? Thanks--Jrradney 18:55, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Radney, thanks for editing my message. This is the page I was talking about. I use INFOSEEK model to pormote Information Literacy Programs. I even try to integrate ADDIE for designing Web-enabled Information Literacy Programs. I seek your comments and suggestions on my WE Information Literacy page and my article. Thanks & regards, --Dr. Indira Koneru 16:06, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

[singing]] M-I-C (c ya real soon!) K-E-Y (why? because I like you!)) Just wanted to let someone know (you're elected) that I finished my project goal, which was to get a stable article up at wiki. Not sure where I go from here, but it's been great fun! Tallong 09:58, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

The road goes ever on and on, down from the place where it began...

There is no end to the places your new skills can take you. Have you thought of continuing through the tutorials to get more proficiency and helping to facilitate future workshops? I think you would be a good addition to the crew...

There is also a really fine group of teachers at IT4ALL who hold workshops for people who want to learn to use Moodle to teach better. These workshops (among many they offer) are taught at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels; each is about a month long and involves about 10 hours of work per week during the course. A new beginner level workshop is starting in September. Several of us who have participated in this workshop are also with IT4ALL (as volunteers, not paid), and Nellie Muller, a prominent WikiEducator, directs IT4ALL.

I mention these things, because I believe you have a valuable contribution to make in many areas.

Thanks for that. I shall certainly give careful thought to continuing the tutorials here. Re IT4ALL, the timing couldn't be worse: my husband has instituted a moratorium on further volunteer work until my business is off the ground, my book is finished, and we're certain we will have a roof over our heads and can eat. Not to mention that I have a publishing deadline looming on a community book I'm writing for, and I am taking an fine art and antiques valuation course - which reminds me - I think I'm behind on a module. Sigh. But with any luck I can keep in touch through Daniel and Supten and I'll be back.

You made a comment at the wiki talk page. I tried to note your suggestion, but the formatting got messed up and I couldn't fix it. Can you take a look? [[1]]

Re IT4ALL: courses are like buses: another one coming soon. Seriously, the IT4ALL Moodle for Teachers course is offered 3 times a year in monthly rotations beginning (how nice!) with beginner, then intermediate, then advanced. Each level is a month-long course (about 10 hours per week), so people can take a breather for 3 months and join in on the next cycle.

I have had more participation during this last year than some, because I have had a very light teaching load. I will probably be too busy in the coming year to be as involved in the courses, but I still value the people and the approach used in the courses.

As far as the wiki formatting is concerned, things seem to have got fixed; not sure what the problem was. Does it still look pear-shaped on your end?--Jrradney 23:22, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Messages not received

It is possible that WikiEducators are trying to message me, but I am not able to view my messages. I'm not sure what the problem is; I get notice on my watchlist that I have new messages, but when I click to open/view the messages, there are none to be read. If you are trying to get in touch with me, please check my user page and comment near the bottom of the page (or reply to this item).--Jrradney 00:01, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

I've got the same problem going, and it's driving me bats. Maybe a glitch in the wiki? Awfully nice of you to leave me a message at my page, and do people call you 'Randy', 'Randolph' or 'Jay'? Tallong 02:09, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Tallong (talk)15:09, 3 August 2010

The problem I was having with my watchlist was corrected (or corrected itself) and things are tickety-boo. The question what people call me is complex. I grew up being called Randy, but have chosen to be addressed as Radney in an international context because for many speakers of (particularly Commonwealth) Englishes my "first name" is a rather objectionable adjective. When I was casting about for an alternative Randolph did not appeal to me at all. Then I remembered that in many boarding schools it is common practice for the 'inmates' (smile) to address one another using last name; I tried using it at a linguistics conference in the UK six years back, and it seemed to work well. So, I've stuck with it.

Jrradney (talk)07:41, 5 August 2010

Well, we could always call you 'Rad', which was my generation's version of the earlier 'bad', which of course was 'good'. Or I suppose 'JR', but then people would be asking who shot you. (I know you're old enough to get that, hee, hee.) 'Radney' it is! Tallong 22:14, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Tallong (talk)11:14, 17 August 2010

Rad was what they called my father in the military (so that would be fine!) :)

Yes, let's stay away from Dallas references (a nice place to visit--briefly--but the total of 6 years spent there would have been totally unendurable but for the people we got to know...)--Jrradney 23:17, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
