The pilot offering, predominantly to COL staff, VUSSC Boot campers and international visitors will:
  • Provide the skills necessary for using WikiEducator for VUSSC and incorporating the technology into COL's programme work.
  • Identify opportunities for improving the resources;
  • Identify questions that participants are most likely to ask for inclusion in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section of each tutorial

Welcome to visitors

A special welcome to all the visitors from different projects around the world who will be joining us with the pilot offering of the tutorials.

Dates and time commitments

  • Total time commitment: between 4 - 5 notional learning hours
  • Number of tutorials: There are eleven tutorials plus an optional tutorial on free content.
  • Estimated time per tutorial: Participants would need about 15 to 20 minutes per tutorial.
  • Technology requirements: Computer with Browser and Internet connection
  • ICT skills requirement: Basic browsing skills. Wiki editing is very easy and accessible.
  • Dates
    • 10 Working days commencing 12 February 2007 to 23 February 2007 for COL staff
