Recreation of this page[edit]

I expanded and restructured this page in August 2008 to act as a coordination centre for everything on Wikiversity relating to the methodology teaching and learning online. I've tried to keep out self-reflective materials about Wikiversity, but added a small section on this, mainly to discourage making self-reflective additions to the main list. I've trawled through Wikiversity pretty thoroughly on the hunt for suitable projects and resources, but I may have missed some. The completion status indicators are rather subjective. Hopefully the completion status indicators will encourage others to adopt or extend stalled projects. --McCormack 14:42, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Talk from 2006 and 2007[edit]

eLearning, mLearning, Flexible learning, online learning... all equal Teaching and Learning Online[edit]

The jargon may come and go, so in considering the term with the most meaning in the long term, I reckon its teaching and learning online. Eventually, I am sure that the online bit will fade away and it will all be just part and parcel of the normal practice of teaching and learning. By then terms like eLearning and flexi learning will for sure have no relevance. --Leighblackall 11:10, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

"Certification"[edit]

I have a problem with your offer of certification. This is not advertising space. This is to be a repository for free information, available to all. We do not intend to offer certification, and others should not be doing so here either. I see you have your certification ad all over the place. Please consider removing that. You write your articles at times in the "I" or "we" form - this should not be the case on the Wikiversity, we have no concept of single author. --WiseWoman 20:50, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Part of what we do at Wikiversity is provide links to learning resources at other websites. Yes, we do not want Wikiversity to be used as a mechanism for advertising businesses, but Wikiversity participants should feel free to link to learning resources at other websites. It is up to the Wikiversity community as a whole to judge what constitutes welcome links to off-site resources and what constitutes unwelcome advertising. These decisions need to be made on a case-by-case basis and with discussion that seeks a fair consensus decision that is in line with the Wikiversity mission. --JWSchmidt 03:17, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
