You worked on the "Introduction to Computers" course.[edit source]

I noticed the course, "Introduction to Computers", featured in the Wikiversity. I am so glad that someone has begun to encourage others to study this important subject. As advertised on the "Featured Articles" page, you have collected a good variety of pictures to illustrate many topics.

I really enjoyed reading through the course. :-) However, I have two concerns: (1) I suspect that you are not a native speaker of American English. This is not necessarily a problem. The Wiki will benefit greatly by addressing a truly international audience. (2) I would like to see a better discussion of the important distinctions between "data" and "information".

I don't know yet if I can be of any help. I'm a new contributor to the Wikiversity myself. Ray Calvin Baker (talk) 23:07, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Dear Ray Calvin Baker

Receiving your message doubled my enthusiasm and interests in doing my job of putting information on Wikipedia. I express my heartful thanks to you for your comments. You are right I am not a native English speaker, even so very interested in putting information on the net. My full name is Hamid Reza Hanafi from Iran. I am 44 years old and a high school teacher. I have studied Electronic engineering getting a bachelor a couple of years ago. I teach computer science in high school. My big concern is to write in English, so it would be a very great favor of yours if you could at all help me in correcting the English texts I put on the net now and then.By the way, a friend of mine has helped me with writing the present comment.Regards

Distinction between "Data" and "Information"?

Copyright problems on photos[edit source]

Hello. There is a problem with one or more files you have uploaded. Every file you upload must have a clear statement of the copyright position. If you took the photos yourself, add {{PD-self}} if you are placing it unreservedly in the public domain. If you wish to retain minimal rights, add {{Cc-by-sa-3.0}}. If you did not take the photo, please add an explanation of why it can be hosted here. I am afraid that if you do not do this, the file wil be deleted. Let me know if you have any problems.--Collingwood (talk) 20:04, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Looking for help[edit source]

Hi there, I saw your activity on some computer science topics here on wikiversity. I have been trying to fix up the main computer science department page ( But nobody is there. The pages (including electrical engineering) need a lot of help - if you have some free time I would love some coworkers! Azotochtli (talk) 13:28, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

IC3[edit source]

Hamid, thanks for your comment regarding Introduction to Computers. I've started to work on a similar project. I'm not sure if you've heard of IC3. It's a minimum level computer certification adopted as an international standard. It is comprised of three tests, as indicated in the article.

I teach at a community college (2 year college) in the US. We have high school students in our area who take a computer class in high school and then take the IC3 certification exam. If they pass the exam, we will award proficiency credit at our college for the introduction to computers course (CIS 100).

What I would like to do is develop a set of open materials that anyone can use to study for the IC3 certification exams. It provides a good combination of open education and industry certification to validate that learning. If you're interested, please join me.

Also, if you put any computer content together and want me to take a look and edit for grammar, just let me know. I regularly grade assignments from students for whom English is a second language, so I'm used to the sentence structure.

Dear Dave Braunschweig

My full name is Hamid Reza Hanafi from Iran and teach computer science in high school.I am very interested in putting computer content on the internet for example:data. I am not a native English speaker then my big concern is to write in English.I will glad help me.Regards--Hr.hanafi (discusscontribs) 05:22, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Hamid, I've added a navigation sidebar to most of the IC3 pages. I left Computing Fundamentals alone for now because I know you like the round boxes, and because the Introduction to Computers course was highly rated based on its design. Please take a look at some of the other IC3 pages and let me know what you think. Is there a better way we can have both round boxes and full course navigation? To see where I've used this successfully in the past, take a look at Internet protocol analysis. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 01:30, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Mr Dave Braunschweig, It's very good.I agree. Thanks! --Hr.hanafi (discusscontribs) 09:12, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi[edit source]

Hi Hamid, Just to introduce myself, I am based in London and I am currently doing an e-learning course in e-learning! I am interested in collaborative working on developing the IC3 pages. I have already had some interactions with Dave Braunschweig. I think we will all work well together. Leutha (discusscontribs) 14:27, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Data vs. Information[edit source]

I noticed your edit at IC3/Computer Hardware on data vs. information. While I agree that data is probably the better term here, the objectives and skills come directly from the IC3 guidelines at and their word is information. I think in this case it's better for us to use the certifying body's terminology, as that is what students are likely to see on the exam.

By the way, my wife has been working with students using the IC3 materials, and they have been successfully completing the certification and are finding the materials helpful.
