Study-Guides

Postby mith » Sun Oct 02, 2005 11:00 pm

We should try collaborating on making study guides for the articles in our tutorial. What do you think?

Is this for moderators only?

No, it is for everyone.

lol
ok then, I think that creating study guides is a great idea. In terms of collaboration, we could follow wikibooks method of free-editing. One useful aspect of wikibooks is that it contains a history page, that shows who made what changes and when, so if you think that the changes aren't warranted then the document can be returned to its original state.
I work on the egyptian section of a wikibooks project on ancient civilizations and this is the method we use.

here's a link to the page so you can see what I'm talking about. (notice also how the document is split into sections.)

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikijunior ... /Egyptians

there are tabs at the top for history, discussion on the progress of the document, etc.

We could just create the studyguides on wikibooks and put the appropriate link in the tutorial article. The wiki site is usually pretty reliable unless they have a major power outage so we wouldn't have to worry about broken links.

The system and infrastructure is there for us to utilize.

But this is all speculation and suggestion, so if you don't totally agree, then we could do something else. :)

I think we can do it here... Since Tyson has such a great server to host the site... Anyway, Mithril have you run this by Tyson? It sounds like a good idea. I am very busy this year but i will help out as much as i can...

No, I have not yet, but since he did say he was hiring a developer, we should have the article system up soon.
