Let’s get started

In order to really get started with the course…

  • …have a look at the course information on the Wikiversity course page.
  • …create a personal Weblog for this course (no need to create a new one if you already have a working Weblog). In case of creating a new one, Blogger or WordPress are recommended platforms. If you encounter problems with creating a personal Weblog, don’t hesitate to contact the course facilitators.
  • …provide an introduction of yourself in your personal Weblog.
  • …register a personal Weblog in Edufeedr (in case your Weblog is created with Blogger of WordPress) and it is also recommended to add your name on Wikiversity’s participants page (click on Edit, add your data, and click on Save).
  • …vote for the most suitable time for the first videoconference in Doodle (do it as soon as possible, but no later than Tuesday evening, 04.09.2012). In order to vote, type your name and make a tick where necessary (making a tick means that this time is suitable for you). The videoconference is going to be maximum 2 hours (depending on the number of participants) and we are going to use Flashmeeting tool (instructions of how to use this will follow soon). The purpose of the videoconference is to get to know each other and talk about how we are going to work in this course.
  • …get yourself ready to do some work and have fun.

These tasks should be done by the end of the first week (09.09.2012).

If you have problems, questions, suggestions don’t hesitate to contact us.

Looking forward to explore the field with you!

    It seems that Wednesday evening works best for most of us this week, however starting next week I will have another class almost at the same time.

    Is there any hope that schedule will be more stable or we will keep voting for every upcoming lecture?
    I got really excited when I saw this lecture in IMKE schedule on Monday morn, but now I second-question my ability to attend it. 😦

    Dear Darja and other participants,
    First of all I want to clarify that we are not going to provide any online lectures. The first meeting is meant to get to know each other and get a clear picture of how we are going to work in this course. We are not planning to have online meetings every week and these few, which we might need during the course, I hope, we can organise them when needed. So, there is no need to be online every week at certain times.

      Great, thank you so much for clarification!
