You do not need to be an educator to edit. You only need to be bold to contribute and to experiment with the sandbox or your userpage. See you around Wikiversity! --Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:17, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

A welcome message from a real person.[edit]

If you have any questions, put them right here. I will place this page on my "watch list" and usually get back to you in less than a day.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 15:12, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Guy: I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm not very good at getting around these wikis, so I'd lost track of my first effort at getting something done in Wikiversity. Maybe you can help me. The first time I went into Wikiversity was because someone had suggested that some of the work I'm doing would find a place there. So I put a suggestion/request into somewhere in Wikiversity that I didn't bookmark and can't find. There was no response that I am aware of. The idea was to put into a category I would call sporadic learning, files that list the names of, say, people or places or things, with a hint at what the name stands for (as a reminder for a learner who's looked at it before) and one or more links (at least one to Wiktionary or Wikipedia). The idea is to provide a portal to Wikipedia and its like that someone with idle curiosity or a student with an imaginative mentor could go to to do some online informal (sporadic) learning, learning that would suck the learner into wandering around Wikipedia and other similar Internet sites. Since I'm unfamiliar with Wiki work other than minor editing I need help to get this set up. Do you feel like getting me that help or pointing me to where it can be found?, Wnholmes (discusscontribs) 10:18, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

There's a link on the left for User contributions that keeps track of your edits. You can always use that to find your contributions. You did receive a couple of responses. Rather than sporadic learning, you might consider a title such as Informal learning activities. Informal learning is more consistent with what you describe, but your learning project sounds like it will provide opportunities for informal learning rather than opportunities to learn about informal learning. To get started, just click on the Informal learning activities red link. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:05, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
Here is another hint: Even though this page is on my watch list, if you go to my talk page and leave a message there, I see an announcement as soon as I log in. My talk page is at: User talk:Guy vandegrift. --Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 22:49, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks very much for the help. I've made a start, but it'll be rather slow progress for a while. Wnholmes (discusscontribs) 12:29, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Informal learning activities[edit]

Hi Wnholmes!

Your collection of resources for Informal learning activities appears to be well-developed and ready for learners! Would you like to have it announced on our Main Page News? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 23:49, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks very much for your offer Marshall. That would be great, BUT there're a few things still to be done, but I'll let you know when it's ready.  Wnholmes (discusscontribs) 01:02, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
