Survey idea is fantastic

Vili wondering how you got to find out about making and including a survey. Is there a page in wiki that lists such things or do you have to pre know about these things to know they exist. Also when you do the survey do you all keep stats easily--Zan 13:56, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi Zan,

Sorry for replying any earlier. I've been away from this page for some time.

As for the survey, I am sure whether there is a wiki survey template. BUt you can prepare your survey outside wikiEducator (for example in SurveyMonkey) and then link to or embed it in your WikiEducator page.

Problem with inserting a quiz inside the Activity Template

Vili Activity Template Problem1.PNG
Hi Colleagues,

I encountered an interesting issue with inserting a quiz in the one of the activity templates - Template:Activity2. At first in works, as shown here:

But if I click on 'edit', it becomes messed up even if I didn't do anything to it.

Currently, it's okay...and I'm I don't want to edit my userpage again otherwise I mess up the content of Activity Template.

Even when I go to History and try to revert the recent changes, I get a message that I cannot undo them!

Grateful for any assistance.

Warmest regards

Welcome to workshop eL4C41 Discussion

Hi Vili, Your page is very well developed & your pictures are beautiful. I am sure you will be an important member of our WE community. Well done.--Dr. Gita Mathur 03:01, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Dr. Gita,

Thanks for the encouraging comments. I like what people are doing in WE. I'll drop by your page to learn from your projects.

I've really enjoyed reading your page. I would love to visit Fiji someday. Wonderful busy bee picture. I have a vegetable garden, but I have trouble weeding out flowers that reseed each year (in my case cleome that have completely taken over the cucumber area), because I love watching the busy bees go from flower to flower.

Your plans for WE projects are wonderful. My sons took general chemistry 2 and 4 years ago. They both struggled to learn the electron configurations. I am excited for the day when learners can find quality materials online to help them learn what they are interested to learn.

Thanks for posting on my page to thank me (my pleasure:) and about the signature issue. Your notes back and forth with Ramesh, suggest that you solved the signature issue. It is true that the link to your user page doesn't "work" on your userpage because you are already there. Rather than linked, it is bold. But I notice that the signature on your learning contract is pointing to a mainspace page rather than a user page. This is the problem that Shinja is having (I think). Have you found the solution to this problem?

Warm Regards, Alison

Hi Alison,

That was quick! I posted my comment on your page this morning, and I thought that it would take long for you to reply. I was just working on my other project - the climate education curriculum - and having just learnt about the 'discussion' page, I thought to just check in case someone has left a message for me. I guess many of the workshop participants are busy bees this weekend (for us on the other side of the Deadline)!

I can imagine your sons experiences with electron configuration. It's an abstract concept. I also struggled learning it at high school and at university. It only started to make sense to me when I started teaching it at high school. And I think that because all my students are visual learners (i.e. struggled to understand abstract ideas that are explained in English), they appeared to understand better when a diagram is drawn.

Thanks for dropping by. I'll come around and leave a message in your Talk page.

Kidneast regards
