Great work!

I love what you've done with the Main Page Sjgknight. Thank you.

Thought it needed a tidy - glad you like it! :-) Sjgknight 12:54, 13 February 2013 (GMT)

I am setting up a glossary page for MOOCs. I wonder where they belong in our structure ... I have referred to them from the Virtual Schools page which I have just created ... I know they are mostly relevant to Universities now but I think they can offer great opportunities for schools both as users and creators of content ...

Seems like as good a place as any. I think we maybe ought to add some text encouraging folk to search rather than browsing as that may be a better strategy within a wiki and/or provide a link to an auto generated contents page (does such a thing exist?)

PeterT07:50, 17 December 2012

I think that the Categories might lead us to an automatically generated contents page ...

By 'autogenerated contents page' do you mean a page which links to all the pages that refer to a particular thing? Category can do that. I'm pretty sure we could embed a 'what links here' list within the glossary page too. So, for example if we were on the mooc entry, we'd see all the places across the wiki moocs were mentioned?

Category pages also let us see all the pages within a particular category...depending on how the category is deployed it's probably more precise, but has lower recall (will link to fewer broadly relevant pages) than the 'whatlinkshere' option...

I meant a page that lists all the pages in the wiki ...

PeterT08:04, 18 December 2012

http://edfutures.net/index.php?title=Special:AllPages ? Or any category page lists pages in that category, e.g. http://edfutures.net/index.php?title=Category:BYOT ......

Thanks Simon - AllPages was what I wanted.

Moved link to Virtual/Online Tuition

I have put back the link to Virtual/Online Tuition which had been moved so that it was only mentioned as an oblique reference in the sentence about the case studies which couldn't be carried out - I think it needs to stay as an entity in its own right outside the case studies. In addition, I don't see much point in mentioning the absence of these case studies unless we still want volunteers to do them ...

Mair17:10, 1 December 2012

Ah I see the change is bigger than I realised at first. Are we only going to have levers for change for which we can do case studies? It might be good to discuss this at the next meeting ...

Mair17:20, 1 December 2012

Good that you put back those links, leaving them out was a mistake. Happy if you also want to remove the listing from the 'otherstuff' section - making it clear that they are still levers for change (just not ones we have case studies for).

Liquid threads now exist

Dear edfutures team:

We've just made a big step forward in terms of our communication, I think. Liquid Threads is now installed! This will allow you to have a threaded discussion on talk pages, without having to do clumsy text-based work-arounds. I hope it works well for you, if not, let me know.
