Hi Liz!

Welcome to the WikiEducator community! We look forward to benefiting from your skills in multimedia development and learning design - thus adding value to the foundations of the Newbie tutorials.

Chat to you soon. --Mackiwg 00:03, 28 May 2007 (CEST)

Hey Liz! you made it in. brent 23:09, 5 June 2007 (CEST)

Well I'm going to start at last on inputting into the wiki. One question: is there a reason why we sometimes have Wikieducator and sometimes WikiEducator? As I'm going through I can make this consistent. It's not a big deal, I know.(Liz Ramsay 22:22, 29 June 2007 (CEST))

Liz for consistency the preference is WikiEducator - --Mackiwg 17:21, 30 June 2007 (CEST)

I’m not sure where I’m supposed to write this stuff: Wayne’s usertalk/ Brent’s usertalk/ my usertalk/the discussion tab for the page? Can you help?

Best place for editorial comments is on the discussion page of the individual content page. However, there is also a new editorial comment feature which you can insert on the actual page:
{{Note|Type your editorial comments here}} will display as:

(Comment.gif: Type your editorial comments here) - the advantage with this approach is that all comments using this template are listed on a category page - makes it easier to find all the comments. --Mackiwg 17:21, 30 June 2007 (CEST)

Thought I’d limit my entries to one per session.

Not really a big issue - the history page will highlight all the changes - even if there are more edits per session. The trick is to remember to save your changes. --Mackiwg 17:21, 30 June 2007 (CEST)
  • I’m a little unsure how pedantic I should be – especially given that we all have opinions on grammar and with an international audience variations are even more likely, On the whole I’m doing it according to whether things really jar or seem a bit hard to understand when sentences get convoluted. There are times when I’m unsure whether nuances are lost in such changes, so on the whole when in doubt, I’m leaving it as is.
This is your call Liz - its a wiki, so if folk don't like the changes, they're free to refine. --Mackiwg 17:21, 30 June 2007 (CEST)

One that I did before I thought to hard about that was:

[| What is a wiki Advantages and Disadvantages]

First sentence of disadvantages.

Reads fine for me - I don't think that you've changed the substance of the intended meaning. --Mackiwg 17:26, 30 June 2007 (CEST)
  • How do you get this offline version of the multimedia files? (If you tell me, I’ll put it in the FAQs.) It also occurs to me that a “Getting Started” page that explains things like this would be useful. What do you think? At the moment I’m putting things I think of in on the page where they occur.
These lessons are also packaged as eXe files which users can download and run as local Websites. Bit of a catch 22, if you don't have bandwidth - its going to be difficult to download large files. However, one broadband connection can make many copies for distribution. I think that it will also be a good idea to have an ISO CDROM image of all the nultimedia used in the tutorials. --Mackiwg 17:26, 30 June 2007 (CEST)

[Basic Text Formatting Bold and Italics]

  • The table for headings doesn’t match the wording. (In the table, you use one equals sign for the top heading, in the text you use two). I’m not sure which one is correct.Liz Ramsay 02:51, 30 June 2007 (CEST)

Hi Liz,
