Digital Media Concepts[edit]

Regarding Digital Media Concepts, I've renamed this resource. There's no advantage to having Intro in the name. People searching for digital media won't find it if it starts with Intro. Also, we typically don't sign content pages, only discussions. I cleaned up some of the links. If what I did isn't what you intended, feel free to change it back or otherwise make adjustments. This looks like the start of an excellent course. Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:35, 14 August 2016 (UTC)


Hi Dave, Is there some formatting for an infobox? Thanks. Ireicher2 (discusscontribs) 02:24, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

What type of formatting are you looking for? -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:12, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

See Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wikipedia links for a tutorial on linking. On-wiki links should be created as internal links using [[title]] or [[title|display]] syntax rather than as https links. Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 12:35, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks so much for all your help, Dave. --Ireicher2 (discusscontribs) 00:08, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

I've moved the student assignment pages under the Digital Media Concepts learning project. As stand-alone pages, others are likely to edit or even delete them. By putting them under the main learning project, they should be left alone for the students to work on. Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:12, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Do you want to collaborate with a physics prof in Ohio?[edit]

See this page for other 13hartc productions

This is one of many projects that my students have done that combines my interest in physics with your interests in multimedia. We could also make svg files to be posted on Wikipedia.

I believe in making physics phun (sic) and try to express that with images. You don't need to go too deep into physics because I currently teach it at only the first-year level. But if you want to delve into physics at a higher level, a colleague and I wrote this paper on a private wiki, and it might be good to have a video of students playing the card game. At a lower level, here are some images that I recently published in Sky&Telescope.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 12:03, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

@Guy vandegrift: Thanks, Guy. It looks really interesting. Unfortunately, I am not really versed in physics. Not sure that I would be the best person to collaborate with. --Ireicher2 (discusscontribs) 04:55, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

New Pages[edit]

When students create new pages, have them do it without external links. They can add the links afterwards, but new users can't create pages with links in them already. Otherwise, if you give me a list of usernames, I can tag their accounts so they won't be considered new users for a week. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:30, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, Dave. I forwarded your message to the students. --Ireicher2 (discusscontribs) 04:46, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Note that Dwingdwang and Zblazin are still trying to create everything at once. It might be easier to have them edit the Digital Media Concepts page to indicate a title, and then you could create placeholder pages for them.

Also, I see some students uploading pictures to Wikiversity. While this is allowed with proper licensing, it is better to upload files to Commons:. The upload wizard there is much better at ensuring that proper licensing is included, and all wikis can then use the images.

Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 03:12, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Point well taken. Licensing and usage rights are important. I am not able to find Dwingdwang's or Zblazin's page. The only page I can find appears to be a subpage [1]
Thanks again so much for your time. --Ireicher2 (discusscontribs) 03:48, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Their attempts can be seen at Special:AbuseLog. They are trying to create pages with links embedded rather than just create pages. When they attempt too many times, they just get locked out. Please encourage students to first add their names and projects to Digital Media Concepts. It will be much easier to assist them if we can first identify them. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 12:15, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Digital Media Concepts[edit]

Hi Ireicher2!

Your course Digital Media Concepts appears to be well-developed and ready for learners! Would you like to have it announced on our Main Page News? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 15:58, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

@Marshallsumter: That would be wonderful. Dave Braunschweig was essential in making sure that the articles were in accordance with wikiversity standards and guidelines. He definitely deserves credit. --Ireicher2 (discusscontribs) 17:13, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
