- The WikiMaster community certification initiative was established to acknowledge skills achievements and to earn community kudos in preparation for the Learning4Content training initiative.
- A draft Policy for skills certification was posted to the group list on 15 Feb 2008 inviting comment and feedback
- WE took a decision to hold back on specifying the criteria for the levels of WikiTrainer and WikiMaster until the community had more experience for specifying the criteria for these levels.
- The popularity of the certification system has resulted in the existing criteria up to the level of WikiArtisan been applied as a de facto practice in WikiEducator's activities with numerous volunteer certifiers implementing the draft procedures.
- Jim Tittsler has trialled a bot application which harvests an generates a list of certified users from the corresponding category pages for each level of the typology. These categories are automatically inserted on the user page of individuals certified.
- We do not have an identifiable list of community certifiers who volunteer to monitor the Request for certification page and award certification requests from the community -- we should consider adding this as a criterion for the WikiTrainer certification level.
- We do not have a list of criteria for the WikiMaster level -- this workgroup should consider developing a set of proposed criteria in consultation with the WikiEducator community.
- We need to operationalise the listing of certified users in the main namespace.
- Request to consider renaming "master" certifications using a gender-neutral term. See discussion thread on google groups: Nomenclature for WikiMaster.
