I realize you might not get this message here. I'll email you to take a look if we don't hear from you.
Just wanted to request that you stop by the Workgroup:WikiEducator Workgroups page to check out the progress that we've made. We've decided to create a charter so we can directly experience the process that we are suggesting for initiating a community-wide Workgroup.
While you are there, please add a brief statement of your relevant skills and experience (as related to the creation of the outcomes of this group) in the Workgroup participants list and note your preference as to communication method in the charter's communication section. And generally speaking all revisions, comments, contribution to ongong discussion are greatly appreciated.
Thanks. Looking forward to continued discussions.
Warm regards, Alison

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I don't always get my WikiEducator messages. Yes, if you want to help out just monitor the google group and help others as you see best. Look forward to having you as a part of the workshop.
Hi Peter, Many thanks for getting us on board.How do you make those strike throughs on your page please!!?
Like Undurthy, I am also in the Learning4Content Workshop. One of my stated interests was quality, and Randy referred my to you given your leadership role with QA in for Educator Wiki.
My content contribution for the workshop will be to annotate some web sources related to wiki content. As a trained peer reviewer for MERLOT.org, I am interested in how standards will evolve and reviewers will be trained for the peer-reviewed levels
of content in this wiki. From the US I'm also familiar with Quality Matters standards for online content and EASI for universal access, and look forward to learning about ones that come from our various countries.
This is a most amazing global venture.

- Tutorial for newbies
- Portal pages
- Creation of bots
- Integration of categorisation into training
- Development of users with advanced skills in categorisation and organisation of site
- Advanced Tutorials
- Promote use of "MyTitle"
- Encourage wiki gardening
I hope this proves useful.Leutha 15:30, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
All very good points, and the structure and flow of these suggestions makes very good sense. I believe the greatest struggle will come in the 1. Taxonomy... How do we grow a taxonomy within a mass collaborative environment? My understanding is that taxonomies should not be prescribed but formed by the group as a part of their culture. How do you suggest establishing the taxonomy? --Peter Rawsthorne 22:53, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
I am practicing the eigth day activity. It is giving me immense pleasure to contact people like this. This is also an opportunity to share ideas.
Peter: I was just taking a brief look at your proposed course on creating and altering Open Educational Resources and thought that you might like to take a look at this course on Wikiversity, Composing free and open online educational resources that is being developed by Teemu Leinonen.
