Hi Red1, nice note on your user page! Here are some links to hopefully get you going. :-) Cormaggio talk 11:49, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

<smile> Them's encouraging words! Looking forward to seeing your end-to-end course - though I suppose my thought for now would be to check what's here already (it sometimes takes some digging - our structuring is quite different from Wikipedia's, and the search function is, as you're probably already aware, pretty inadequate). You can use Topic pages and Categories (see Wikiversity:Namespaces) as well as navigation bars to interlink relevant and/or overlapping content, but you really have quite a blank canvas to work with here. Oh, and of course feel free to set up collaborative learning projects as well as creating stand-alone materials. Let me know if you ever need any help... Cormaggio talk 12:16, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

A wise choice. ;-) I replied to your comment on User talk:Cormaggio/Visions of Wikiversity, btw. Cormaggio talk 17:20, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Being bold has its uses :)[edit]

Thanks for your note on my talk page about my edits to The Web Economy. I was trying to bring a sense of order to the Dynamic Lists that are created on some of the portals, which stem from the categories that topic/content pages are placed in. With the mix of one and two digit identifiers, it's hard to figure out what goes where, since page "2" comes in sort order after page "19", which doesn't follow logically.

My suggestion would be to replace the "01", "02" page titles with titles that more properly reflect the subject/topic of the page itself. For instance, page "17" is nominally titled "Why isn't everyone using Linux?", which is a great standalone topic. You could also place this as a subpage of The Web Economy.

The idea of Wikiversity in my mind is to bridge understanding, and using more meaningful titles could help with this. I'll leave it to you for now, but I think this might help people to find your course. Historybuff 21:14, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Chapingo University System[edit]

Hi! I noticed your recent post at Chapingo University System. If most of the content will be in Spanish, you should consider contributing to Wikiversidad español instead. We do have some Spanish content here, but it is primarily for teaching Spanish to English speakers. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:03, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! I will certainly reorganised this then as you advised. - Red1 (discusscontribs) 18:25, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
