Computer Application Technology[edit]

my name is Avile Bantwini from South Africa and I am doing Computer Application Technology .I would like to ask you what course should I am take if want to be an Network Administrator? Plz help me I am still confused I am doing grade 11 ,plz

Welcome Avile! I don't know about South Africa, but I can tell you in the United States a recommended sequence would be:
  1. Computer Skills - You should already be past this
  2. IC3 - You are probably taking this now
  3. IT Fundamentals - Start here. Consider IT Fundamentals certification
  4. Computer Support - Earn your A+ certification
  5. Computer Networks - Earn your Network+ certification
  6. IT Service Management - Learn service management, consider ITIL certification
  7. Windows Server Administration - Learn to manage Windows servers
  8. Linux Administration - Learn to manage Linux servers, earn your Linux+ certification
  9. Cisco CCENT - Learn to manage networking devices, earn your CCENT certification
  10. IT Security - Earn your Security+ certification
  11. Cloud fundamentals / Cloud computing - Learn cloud computing, earn your Cloud+ certification
After that you'll know what part of network administration you want to specialize in. You also shouldn't have any difficulty finding employment with eight or more world-wide recognized certifications.
Good luck!

Just FYI, some of the mainspace pages being put in Draft namespace by the bot are resources not lectures. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 23:04, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

@Marshallsumter: The pages that have been moved are part of Wikiversity:Requests for Deletion#Main Page "Lectures". They go in Draft space, per community consensus, unless they find a new home as subpages. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:28, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
I've noticed there are pages that may appear as resource/lecture. Is something along these lines satisfactory? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 00:43, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
@Marshallsumter: I encourage you to review WV:RFD and consider the concerns that were raised regarding these pages. As a blanket statement, my perspective would be no, a combined resource and lecture doesn't address the concerns described. I personally am okay with shorter overview resource landing pages and separate detail / lecture on subpages, consistent with Wikipedia:Progressive disclosure. But it should be noted that not everyone was supportive of that approach. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 03:30, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Chinese line wrapping[edit]

I found that the line wrapping of the Chinese versions cannot be split by word like English. Could you help to fix this problem? Efex3 (discusscontribs) 22:22, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

@Efex3: Can you provide (link to) an example of where you see the problem? -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 22:32, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes the lines are not wrapped after a space, such as this example. Efex3 (discusscontribs) 22:55, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
@Efex3: What platform and browser are you using? I'm on a Mac using Chrome and lines are wrapping fine at all screen widths in both Desktop and Mobile views. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:15, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
I am using Android Chrome. English lines have no problem, but only Chinese lines have problem sometimes. Efex3 (discusscontribs) 23:45, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
@Efex3: I don't have an Android device available, but I tried a Chromebook and it was fine. I also checked Safari, the least compatible browser I have available, and it was also fine. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:54, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
This problem happened is because of the Chinese lines are split base on Chinese character but not word.Efex3 (discusscontribs) 00:12, 29 March 2018 (UTC)


@Efex3: I'm sorry, but I can't read Chinese. I need you to be very specific. Describe by example exactly what should break and what should not break so I can reproduce the problem. There may or may not be a solution, but without specifics, there is nothing I can do to assist you. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:17, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Could you let the software of Wikiversity breaks the Chinese lines only after a space like English? Efex3 (discusscontribs) 00:51, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
@Efex3: Without a specific example to test, I am unable to assist you. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:59, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Such as this example. Efex3 (discusscontribs) 01:14, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
@Efex3: See {{nowrap}}. I'm not aware of any setting that controls this behavior. You're welcome to search through mw:Manual. If you find a setting that can be configured, I can investigate further. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 01:37, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your efforts, but the difficulty for me is I don't know programming. Efex3 (discusscontribs) 02:29, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
The wrapping of your revision is OK. Could you let the software of Wikiversity to do this automatically? Efex3 (discusscontribs) 12:02, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Chinese line wrapping is fine now. Thank you very much. Efex3 (discusscontribs) 14:21, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
However, it doesn't work for mobile views. Maybe, you have configured for desktop but not yet for mobile views. Efex3 (discusscontribs) 13:02, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

@Efex3: I'm just a volunteer here, like you. I don't have anything configured one way or the other, and your continued editing of this page to force the issue is unwelcome. If you can find a setting that needs to be adjusted, please let me know. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:24, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Preventive Health Science[edit]

The English version of "Preventive Health Science" was translated from the Spanish version and we need to have both , now the Spanish version disappeared, how can we get it back?

Thank you very much --IMHAR 13:18, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

@Saltrabook: This is the English Wikiversity. There are some resources available in other languages, but those are only for the purpose of teaching those languages. If you want to maintain translated versions of the same content, please see Hilbert Book Model Project for how to correctly add translated subpages in other languages using {{Translations}}. Titles are in English, with only the language code subpage indicating the translation. Content that does not follow this approach is deleted. I will send a wiki email with the recently deleted content. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:59, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello Dave, I got it Thank you verymuch, We will use the Spanish Wikiversity for the Spanish version --IMHAR 20:13, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
