Hi, I was browsing through finished Final Projects in the University A-H group (which I am a part of) and wanted to say this is a very easy wiki to navigate through. I love the Start Here button.Where did you get that???? The whole thing is very user friendly and I think will make it so easy for first time online instructors. I appreciate being able to visit. Thanks Nancy

Hi Nancy,
Thanks for your feedback. The Start Here button and all the other icons used in this wiki were created by our Media Team at Bow Valley College. The graphics package was created for our courses housed in our LMS (Blackboard). I used them on the wiki so all our resources have a consistent look and feel.

Very impressive wiki, Laura!! I teach online and would love to become a part of this wiki. I am trying to put a discussion forum on my wikispace and am having lots of problems with the embedding. I went to the PBWorks User manual and tried to follow the directions but the code isn't pasting in properly. Can you tell me how you did yours?

Hi Sheila,

Please join the wiki if you'd like to be part of it. I used the talki discussion forum and it worked fine. I didn't have any problems embedding, but I did have some problems getting logged in as administrator to set up the forum topics. I just used the "other html" widget and pasted the embed code.

This is an ABSOLUTELY fabulous example of a wiki! Not only is it very user-friendly, the organization and appearance of your resources and pages is superb. I would love to be a part of this wiki, although currently I am not teaching online--I am hoping to instruct teachers on using wikis as a supplement/complement to Blackboard and to collaborate with Peer Leaders/Mentors in our ESL Program. Either way, thanks so much for the inspiration you have given me. It goes to show you how less is more--and how well tables and simple icons can improve the appearance of a site.
Incidentally, I am over in the ESL campers page.
Best of luck with this!
