Category levels

Hi Randy,

What is your take on this?

I usually use the most specific category applicable and do not also add any of its ancestors (super-categories) or descendants (sub-categories).

Re: email notifications from talk pages

Hello Wikirandy!

I am wondering why I'm not receiving email notifications when changes to my talk pages occur. I have selected the following under my preferences:

E-mail me when my user talk page is changed

For example, when I posted this message, did you (or are you able to) receive an email notifying you that someone (--Benjamin Stewart 15:17, 27 June 2010 (UTC)) added a comment to your talk page?

Any thoughts?

Thanks Wikirandy for you cooperation for managing my wikieducator page

Global warming project

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 15:44, 5 December 2009

Hi Randy,

I noticed you created a page for a project on climate change back in August which has developed into a resource for a specific group. I'm interested in these issues but felt the need for something more general that would help me explore the issues around climate change. So I've started a new project called Global warming and I'm looking for collaborators. Mystictim 18:39, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

hi Randy!!!!!!! congrats buddy!!!!!! i completely agree with Phil, your page and you have always inspired me to work hard on my page!--Yanubha 13:16, 23 September 2009 (UTC) Well done, Randy. You sure deserve the recognition. You have contributed so much to WikiEd and it is much more than your user page (which is great, by the way). --Phil Bartle 09:52, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

I am honored that you visited my page... it's kinda like having Paul McCartney come to watch you perform at the school talent show or something. I hope my list has value-added... I think it does because every time I find an "extensive" list of free online econ content I find that 95% of is not suitable to base an actual course around. Once I integrate several more lists on it I will try to start publicizing it to econ instructors.

I am finding this to be a great experience ... the world thanks you for all that you have done.

If you have the time I do have a couple of questions...

1. There are obviously network externalities at work with these sights... the more people use them the more valuable they get. So I am wondering what, if any, are the "competing" sights that educators may be visting to connect with each other?

2. How does WE support itself? Is there any chance funding could be cut in the future?

Thanks again. Cheers, --Brian Evans 10:03, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Brianevans (talk)23:03, 3 May 2009
  • Hi Brian,

Ahh, the Paul McCartney reference - sounds great, and I'll hang onto it for awhile! <smile>

Right now, most of the materials are snippets - you're right....but we are moving into the next phase of our strategy....As of May 1, the project has moved to an International Centre for Open Education / OER Foundation based in New Zealand. It is still affiliated with the Commonwealth of Learning. We are moving to a membership model, where we will be seeking to engage with educational institutions (i.e., tertiary education - universities and colleges) to start to have their curriculum development, at least in part, done on the wiki. A cluster of 5 people can generate a minimum return of 30% cost-savings, or reduction in time-to-market. Moreover, there will be considerable networking and joint proposal development opportunities between the partners who share like values, etc.

Regarding your questions, I'm not sure that I understand Q1., so, if you could rephrase, that would be very helpful.

Regarding Q2, at this point, WE has 'supported itself' primarily through the Commonwealth of Learning, in terms of infrastructure support and a full-time project leader. In future, as the OER Foundation gets up and running, there is likely to be 3-5 core staff, with a fairly small annual budget. The organization will be primarily virtual and highly-leveraged, working with WikiEducators around the globe on a project basis. The educational members I spoke above, will provide membership fees to support the core operations, and other projects will be funded through proposal development. If you are interested in a particular project - your own, your groups, or something else, please do let us know, and we'll be happy to provide direction and support for you to obtain financial resources for it. So, the WikiEd project will not fail for budgetary reasons, because right now it is running nicely on a very very small level of funding....Community engagement and ownership is key, and we invite you to become more involved, and invite your friends... <smile> -- Randy Fisher 21:12, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Usability Working Group

Hi Randy, I spoke to Murani the other day and he mentioned that he had given up the Learning4Content course he was on, because he got far too many e-mails, which seemed of little relevance to him. I hope that the Usability Working Group page will provide a useful resource for discussing these issues, and would welcome your comments there.Leutha 19:38, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
