Finish up your work with WikisAreUs
We'll spend the time in class comparing notes on your first look at wikis. We want to work from first impressions of wikis and towards a critical perspective - which is why the readings are important. They provide a critical stance.
If you haven't sensed it already, wikis push against / challenge / call into question print-based conventions and values of writing: ownership, commodification, expert and amateur production, incentive. That creates anxiety not just in writers but others stakeholders: businesses, teachers, anyone who wants to control how ideas develop. Come ready to discuss and ask questions about

- concepts: refactoring, double line, thread and document mode, page patterns ... pages in constant development and change.
- conventions and style guides for organizing writers
- changes to conditions of reading and writing
- changes to the conditions of creating knowledge
- changes to practices of reading and writing
- changes to the values of reading and writing
- changes to what text is and how it works: from print to hypertext
- social and cultural fears and anxieties
- the wiki way
- ...
Your first port of call on any of these topics is this wiki. Use the search field at the top of each page, or the page index.

- A change of subject and a breather: Only one required post and no reflection!
- We'll web working with wikis for the next few weeks. We'll be looking at a few, writing a little about them, but mainly, you'll be contributing to this wiki. It serves us best to start slow, however, rather than jumping into the fire: Read first, wiki second. So for this week work with the reading and writing activities in PreparingForWikis.
- There's a single post due for Sunday midnight, but you might want to make a few shorter posts over the week.
==== posted on Sun 22 Feb ====
**Before Tuesday, class time.**
=== Set up your WikiName page ===
Download and print out two pages. You'll want to be able to refer to the tutorial as you register for the wiki.
- [[http://mcmorgan.clarify-it.com/d/dkyv7d Getting Started on the Wiki Tutorial]]. PDF. The invitation code will be posted on D2L.
- SettingUpAWikiNamePage.
Now follow the tutorial and get registered for the wiki and your wiki name page set up.
- Get started on the exercise before class so we can address any problems on Tues, 24 Feb.
==== for week of 24 Feb - 3 Mar ====
- for reference: PreparingForWikis, GettingTheWikiAttitude
- WritingTheWiki2015. Sentences About. Work with pages a number of times through the week.
- Post a weekly **reflection to your blog** by midnight Monday.
==== 3 Mar ====
- a look at WritingTheWiki2015. Sentences About

- Use of wikis. Anxieties regarding wikis.
The role of the writer on the wiki
- GrowingTheWiki means nurturing and fertilizing pages. Revising to connect and open ideas further.
- We will consider some strategies, then proceed to the micro-exercise for Thursday.
==== Micro-exercise: Due R, 6:00 pm ====
Recall that WikisAreSocial. Recall on a wiki EverythingIsInterTwingled. Recall that MeaningIsConnection and ConnectionIsMeaning.
Return to the pages you created or worked on, and revise - add to - refactor - create stubs - work below the DoubleLine - to do two things
1. Link the page with other pages on this wiki by adding WikiWords in appropriate places. You will need to find other pages to link to (Use Search, consult PageIndex, have another look at the SentencesAboutWritingTheWiki page, read other pages).
2. To open the page to further additions / changes by others. CreatingStubs is a good way. WikiCharming is another.
This exercise need not take long (30 minutes), but the more inviting you are, the better the health of the wiki.
=== Final clean up===
- We don't use all caps in titles or headings on this wiki. See HeadingCase. When you see heads in all caps, edit them to the proper case.

- Note on not printing: BSU is trying to save money on printing so I'm not duplicating RettbergChaps1And2 and distributing it. You are responsible for what's on that page, however, so you might want to find an alternative way of keeping the task in front of you. We read differently on screen than on paper and are more likely to skim. Don't. Train yourself not to. Keep the task on a screen note. Or print out just the task you're undertaking and pin it to your wall. Or something.
n class
- Questions? Technical problems? News? Working methods?
- Groups review posts for Week 3 RettbergChaps1And2
- Present a selection, and extend into Rettberg.
- Developing expectations on [[http://erhetoric.org/WeblogsAndWikis/wikka.php?wakka=CourseStatement2014#hn_Criteria_for_Engagement:_SDTT | SDTT]]
Your work with materials for this course should be substantive, detailed, thorough, and thoughtful. Blogging is a good forum for fulfilling these criteria. Blogging tends to have an attitude, and it tends to be informal, accumulative, with any single post being partial, incomplete, and tentative. But blogging - good blogging - is also substantive, detailed, thorough, thoughtful. Snarky, informal, partial and incomplete - but still substantive.
For this week
- RettbergChap3
- Multiple posts on the topic would be good, but should be completed by Saturday. Weekly reflection due Monday for class on Tuesday.
==== week 5: Feb 11 -18 ====
In class
- Questions? Technical problems? News? Working methods?
- Groups review posts. Aggregate multiples.

==== Week 4: Feb 11 - Feb 18 ====
For this week
- PreparingForWikis
==== Week 5: Feb 18 - 25 ====
- Questions, news, reviews
- Aggregate questions and observations on wikis.
- what you observe on the wikis regarding how the writers work
- questions that come up concerning wikis and using wikis (and links to pages that address those questions)
- how wikis operate as social spaces for collective / collaborative work.
- how content creation gets done.
- differences in reading and writing from what we are familiar with.
- ... whatever else comes up
- Intro to this wiki
- GettingStarted covers some formatting. FormattingRules goes into detail with images, links, floats.
- StyleGuide
- WikiWallflowers (which needs refactoring to eliminate the gender bias)
- Intro to WritingTheWikiProject.
==== Week 5 activities ====
- Contribute regularly to the WritingTheWikiProject. Make additions and edits to pages you're working on ** every other day** and keep track of your work on your WikiName page or your weblog. You'll need that list for your weekly reflection.
- Post your weekly reflection on your blog. In your weekly reflection, link to the pages you worked on, and reflect on the questions listed in the HeuristicForWeeklySummaries.
== Notes ==
- Getting started suggestions at OnFirstEnteringAPage

- Delete a page by removing all the text from it. (Select All - Delete).
- To start a new page, start at any page, create a new WikiWord, save the page, follow the link, and click on Create the page.
- Wikis don't do pretty page formatting. Don't waste your time trying to force them to
- We can't embed video on this wiki. Images, yes.
- Use a tab to set a block paragraph. Use two returns to start a new paragraph.
- Use Left Float and Right Float from the formatting bar while editing to set chunks of text or images L or R.
- "The writing on wikis is not formal, it’s explanatory." TricaTuntland
==== Week 6 Notes ====
- Questions, news, reviews
- Aggregate questions and observations on wikis
- Aggregate difficulties
==== Week 6 Activities ====
Week 5 and 6 can be a challenge because you may need to learn some new practices as well as generate and work with content.
- Reading: Chapter from //Wikis: Web Collaboration//, Ebersbach, Glaser, Heigl, Warta.
- MorgansNotesOnWikiWebCollaboration
- Extend the chapter from //Wikis// on the wiki. Address this in the same way we worked with Rhettberg's //Blogging//: by extending the ideas rather than commenting on them. See the note at the end MorgansNotesOnWikiWebCollaboration.
- Adding thread or document material
- Bringing material from the reading and other sources: the Brecht essay on the radio, work on digital literacy, digital culture. Bring material in into any page by way of quoting, summarizing, refactoring.
- You may extend the chapter in one page, or distribute your work across pages, using project pages you worked on for this week, or other existing pages, or new pages tailored for your work with the chapter, such as
- WhatMakesWikiWritingSoHard
- WhatMakesWikiWritingSoEasy
- WikiLiteracy or WikiLiteracyIsSocialLiteracy
- SocialDeterminism
- DigitalCultureDivide
- There are topics - which serve as page names - in the headings of the chapter.
- Make multiple visits.
- Reflection, as usual, with links to the pages you worked on, by Monday.
- And you can read my first pass (second draft) of an extension to the chapter in MorgansNotesOnWikiWebCollaboration.
Make additions and edits to pages you're working on ** every other day** and keep track of your work on your WikiName page or your weblog. You'll need that list for your weekly reflection.

- Bringing material from the reading and other sources: the Brecht essay on the radio, work on digital literacy, digital culture. Bring material in into any page by way of quoting, summarizing, refactoring.
- You may extend the chapter in one page, or distribute your work across pages, using project pages you worked on for this week, or other existing pages, or new pages tailored for your work with the chapter, such as
- WhatMakesWikiWritingSoHard
- WhatMakesWikiWritingSoEasy
- WikiLiteracy or WikiLiteracyIsSocialLiteracy
- SocialDeterminism
- DigitalCultureDivide
- There are topics - which serve as page names - in the headings of the chapter.
- Make multiple visits.
- Reflection, as usual, with links to the pages you worked on, by Monday.
- And you can read my first pass (second draft) of an extension to the chapter in MorgansNotesOnWikiWebCollaboration.
Make additions and edits to pages you're working on ** every other day** and keep track of your work on your WikiName page or your weblog. You'll need that list for your weekly reflection.

- Developing expectations on [[http://erhetoric.org/WeblogsAndWikis/wikka.php?wakka=CourseStatement2014#hn_Criteria_for_Engagement:_SDTT | SDTT]]
Your work with materials for this course should be substantive, detailed, thorough, and thoughtful. Blogging is a good forum for fulfilling these criteria. Blogging tends to have an attitude, and it tends to be informal, accumulative, with any single post being partial, incomplete, and tentative. But blogging - good blogging - is also substantive, detailed, thorough, thoughtful. Snarky, informal, partial and incomplete - but still substantive.
For this week
- RettbergChap3
- Multiple posts on the topic would be good, but should be completed by Saturday. Weekly reflection due Monday for class on Tuesday.

Activities for Week 3 move us into Jill Walker Rettberg's book, Blogging, 2nd edition.

- General notes OnTheActivities
- Activities for Week 3 RettbergChaps1And2
- Note on not printing: BSU is trying to save money on printing so I'm not duplicating RettbergChaps1And2 and distributing it. You are responsible for what's on that page, however, so you might want to find an alternative way of keeping the task in front of you. We read differently on screen than on paper and are more likely to skim. Don't. Train yourself not to. Keep the task on a screen note. Or print out just the task you're undertaking and pin it to your wall. Or something.

==== Friday - Sunday ====
Two activities - in which ever order you find useful - that enact some ideas of Rettberg, Chap 3. Think of blogs not as isolated islands but as nodes in a set of networks, esp social networks between people. Rettberg places the kind of social networks that are created by blogging in context with other networks created by other social networking sites, like FB, to create distributed conversations.
- Posts and tweets and bookmarks on Levinson, chap 7: Facebook. Read and post on the chapter in light of Rettberg on orality (chap 2) and social theory (chap 3). That is, consider in your posts how these ideas connect. Some posts start to connect the ideas already - because many of you know Facebook well. But see what else you can see.
- *Update Saturday am*: Levinson, as usual, relies exclusively on his own (limited) experience in discussing FB topics. As a result every example he gives without invoking a principle behind it can be set aside w/a counter-argument. Meanwhile, the principles he's invoking go unstated. //Go find those principles// - and bookmark them. Rettberg chap 3 gives some. There are others out there. (Why, for instance, is it no surprise that someone you meet on line will be very like that person f2f? Others have written about this. Find out.) We'll talk f2f on Monday.
- Comment on at least two recent posts of others in the class. You may do this on their blog, or by creating your own post in response to one of theirs.
- Other suggestions: refer to WeblogAndWikisWeekThree2012.

**For Thursday**
Return to this site and start the Set Up activities on WeblogAndWikisWeekOne2011. Get signed up for a blog, email the url to me, and make a post or two on it using the en3177 tag. Move on to next steps if you wish.
Questions? Answers? Post them as comments to the [[http://www.erhetoric.org/daybook/?p=719 Weblogs and Wikis Startup post.]]
==== 13 Jan ====
As of 8:00 am Jan 12: four or five weblogs are linked, and half a dozen Twitter accounts are following @weblogsandwikis
- Questions on the syllabus
- Fast review of [[http://www.erhetoric.org/daybook/ The Daybook]]. You'll also need to spend some time getting comfortable with how it works. Recent posts, recent comments, moderation ...
- Remarks on what's developing on the course.
- pretty good. most messages are phatic, making contact, getting used to the network you're building. But some are already moving through the material from remix to repurposing: Chambers, Naming my blog, Muse in Adding a Header Image.
- blogs: have a look at a few via the Daybook - and some aggregating and repurposing that's going on.
- twitter: http://twitter.com/: weblogsandwiki stream. Search #en3177. Search is aggregated in the daybook. Search other topics: newslike. But you can talk to each other.
- Demo: delicious: bookmarking. Find something you want to read and refer others to? Get a bookmarklet to save stuff. Tag it. And follow ... writers guide to twitter
===Issues===
- On Blogger, tags are the same as Labels.
- issues with StumbleUpon. **Update**: SumbleUpon doesn't seem to have an rss feed for tags. Use favorites instead.

===In class===
- Locate, learn about, and sign up for social bookmarking and Twitter: Delicious, Diigo, Pinboard. Choose.
- In-class problem-solving. Build your learning network. If you have an issue, find someone in class who can help you address it. If you're set up, go searching for more materials to help you and others out - or create some.
- If you are set up with the Big 3 (blog, twitter, social bookmarking), help others out face to face or by searching, annotating, and sharing.

=====Course Syllabus Spring 2011=====
==== 11 Jan ====
- CourseStatement2011
- Demonstration
**For Thursday**
Return to this site and start the Set Up activities on WeblogAndWikisWeekOne2011. Get signed up for a blog, email the url to me, and make a post or two on it using the en3177 tag. Move on to next steps if you wish.
Questions? Answers? Post them as comments to the [[http://www.erhetoric.org/daybook/?p=719 Weblogs and Wikis Startup post.]]
==== 13 Jan ====
As of 8:00 am Jan 12: four or five weblogs are linked, and half a dozen Twitter accounts are following @weblogsandwikis
- Questions on the syllabus
- Fast review of [[http://www.erhetoric.org/daybook/ The Daybook]]. You'll also need to spend some time getting comfortable with how it works. Recent posts, recent comments, moderation ...
- Remarks on what's developing on the course.
- pretty good. most messages are phatic, making contact, getting used to the network you're building. But some are already moving through the material from remix to repurposing: Chambers, Naming my blog, Muse in Adding a Header Image.
- blogs: have a look at a few via the Daybook - and some aggregating and repurposing that's going on.
- twitter: http://twitter.com/: weblogsandwiki stream. Search #en3177. Search is aggregated in the daybook. Search other topics: newslike. But you can talk to each other.
- Demo: delicious: bookmarking. Find something you want to read and refer others to? Get a bookmarklet to save stuff. Tag it. And follow ... writers guide to twitter
===Issues===
- On Blogger, tags are the same as Labels.
- issues with StumbleUpon. **Update**: SumbleUpon doesn't seem to have an rss feed for tags. Use favorites instead.

===In class===
- Locate, learn about, and sign up for social bookmarking and Twitter: Delicious, Diigo, Pinboard. Choose.
- In-class problem-solving. Build your learning network. If you have an issue, find someone in class who can help you address it. If you're set up, go searching for more materials to help you and others out - or create some.
- If you are set up with the Big 3 (blog, twitter, social bookmarking), help others out face to face or by searching, annotating, and sharing.
Deletions:
=====Course Syllabus Spring 2010=====

One way of approaching this is to choose a passage from her text (a few sentences, a paragraph), add it to your post, then delve into the implications of what she's saying. Link when possible to examples, other points of views, other angles, interesting sidelines.
- Post responses to the chapters on your blog by Sunday evening, ok? The practice is to take on one idea (or chapter) per post rather than tumble everything together. Focus your posts and readers can focus their comments.

=== Fri 5 Feb ===
- No face to face meeting. Online exercise on the wiki, leading to Monday and Wednesday consideration of WritingOnAWiki.
==== Friday Exercise 5 Feb - Sun 7 Feb ====
Wikis change the postions of writer and reader - as blogs do but more so. But even more, they alter how writing gets written, making drafting more public, slowing down revision, and adding an aspect to writing: refactoring. More than traditionally, wikis demand that writers share a common sense of the material process, and a shared idea of how the text will be worked with.
Become familiar with the shared processes of writing on a wiki. Read the StyleGuide, and the pages linked from that page: ThreadMode, DocumentMode, and RefactoringPages.
Read also [[http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume39/WideOpenSpacesWikisReadyorNot/157925 Wide Open Spaces: Wikis Ready or Not]] by Brian Lamb.
Then visit our page titled WideOpenSpaces and start and add to the ThreadMode discussion. You might also contribute to some of the topics already started.
You task is to become familiar with the conversation we've been having on this wiki for the past few years, and to find a place or topic to enter and add to. Post at least once. Better to return later and post a second time. Or post to other topics. If you post to other topics, keep track of those topics.
The discussants are students in this class past and present. You have nothing to fear.
=== Mon 8 Feb ===
Everyone should have read the materials and posted to the wiki at least once. These exercises are part of your grade.
- Discussion on wikis: Ok. I'm here. Now what do I do?
- compositional practices: WritingOnAWiki
- social practices: StyleGuide and CollaborationConventions
- ReadingTheWikiPage
- tools: Search, PageIndex, RecentChanges, Categories
- highlights of Lamb's [[http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume39/WideOpenSpacesWikisReadyorNot/157925 Wide Open Spaces]]
- Who's been adding to the wiki where. Check the RecentChanges.

Additions:
=== Fri 5 Feb ===
- No face to face meeting. Online exercise on the wiki, leading to Monday and Wednesday consideration of WritingOnAWiki.
==== Friday Exercise 5 Feb - Sun 7 Feb ====
Wikis change the postions of writer and reader - as blogs do but more so. But even more, they alter how writing gets written, making drafting more public, slowing down revision, and adding an aspect to writing: refactoring. More than traditionally, wikis demand that writers share a common sense of the material process, and a shared idea of how the text will be worked with.
Become familiar with the shared processes of writing on a wiki. Read the StyleGuide, and the pages linked from that page: ThreadMode, DocumentMode, and RefactoringPages.
Read also [[http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume39/WideOpenSpacesWikisReadyorNot/157925 Wide Open Spaces: Wikis Ready or Not]] by Brian Lamb.
Then visit our page titled WideOpenSpaces and start and add to the ThreadMode discussion. You might also contribute to some of the topics already started.
You task is to become familiar with the conversation we've been having on this wiki for the past few years, and to find a place or topic to enter and add to. Post at least once. Better to return later and post a second time. Or post to other topics. If you post to other topics, keep track of those topics.
The discussants are students in this class past and present. You have nothing to fear.
=== Mon 8 Feb ===
Everyone should have read the materials and posted to the wiki at least once. These exercises are part of your grade.
- Discussion on wikis: Ok. I'm here. Now what do I do?
- compositional practices: WritingOnAWiki
- social practices: StyleGuide and CollaborationConventions
- ReadingTheWikiPage
- tools: Search, PageIndex, RecentChanges, Categories
- highlights of Lamb's [[http://www.educause.edu/EDUCAUSE+Review/EDUCAUSEReviewMagazineVolume39/WideOpenSpacesWikisReadyorNot/157925 Wide Open Spaces]]
- Who's been adding to the wiki where. Check the RecentChanges.
for Weds
- Continue WritingOnAWiki for Wednesday. WideOpenSpaces is a good starting point.

=== Fri 29 Jan ===
No face to face meeting. Blog exercise in collective writing running from Wednesday to Monday. Blogs as a medium for collective work.

By Friday, noon
- Read Rettberg, chaps 4 and 5.
- Write a blog post in which you consider the topic or issue your group is focusing on, drawing on Rettberg chaps 1 - 5, as well as other bloggers and other authors. (Search Google, and choose sources that you have read and find valuable.)
- Write this post in such a way as to invoke comments and help commenters focus. Ask for input, and specify where.
from Friday noon through the weekend
- Within your group, gather comments on each other's posts, including further development, links to other sources and each other.
- If appropriate, make another blog post before presenting (Sunday evening.)
Of course, you can see what other groups in class are writing in and comment on and link to their work.
You'll be presenting your ideas - and how the exercise went - on Monday, in class.
**Update: Sunday 5:00 pm. {{color text="Everyone log into their blogs and check for comments that might need moderating." c="red"}}** Checking in to moderate comments is part of the weekend exercise.

Additions:
=== Fri 22 Jan - through the weekend===
- Set up a blog on WordPress
- Tweet your blog url using #en3177 and #blog
- Use the weekend to get used to blogging and WordPress.
- For Sunday, read Walker Rettberg, chaps 1 - 3 and comment on each chapter.
- Focus on the ideas Walker Rettberg addresses. One way of approaching this is to choose a passage from her text (a few sentences, a paragraph), add it to your post, then delve into the implications of what she's saying. Link when possible to examples, other points of views, other angles, interesting sidelines.
- Post responses to the chapters on your blog by Sunday evening, ok? The practice is to take on one idea (or chapter) per post rather than tumble everything together. Focus your posts and readers can focus their comments.
- Link link link to topics, other posts, pages on the web. Blogging is about linking.
- Bonus points for twitter summary of each chapter. Use #en3177.

<<== Special Leap Year Class Session ==
The tradition ... started with St. Patrick and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigid_of_Kildare St. Bridget]] (5th Century) in Ireland. St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick that the sisters in her nunnery were in despair because the prevailing tradition at the time -- that women had to wait for a proposal of marriage from a man. [At the time, nuns were allowed to marry.]] St.Patrick agreed to allow women to propose to men every four years, during Leap Year [in some versions, it's only on Feb 29th]. Bridget proposed to Patrick only to be turned down. [St Patrick was a saint at the time and could not marry. As recompense, Patrick gave Bridey a gown, in some versions.]. [[http://www.care2.com/gates/holidays/leapyear/leapyear.html care2.com]]

<<
- Last f2f meeting until the end of Mar
- ProjectProposalAssignment approved or needing revision for Monday.

Final notes
- Most proposals need a few changes - details in number of posts and length, mainly. Once you've made the changes I've asked for, go ahead and start the project. No need to print out the proposal. Add a link to your blog or wiki from the proposal page and I'll add you to the blogroll.
- If I've asked for more extensive changes, let me know when they're ready, or set up a meeting with me for next Monday. I'll be in my office during class time: HS 314.
- Make your research part of posting. That is, rather than breaking projects into research > write, post about the research. Knowledge accumulates over time on a blog.

Wikipedia has a large [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wikis list of wikis]], and a pretty complete [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_farms comparison chart of wiki farms]].

<<== Special Leap Year Class Session ==
The tradition ... started with St. Patrick and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigid_of_Kildare St. Bridget]] (5th Century) in Ireland. St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick that the sisters in her nunnery were in despair because the prevailing tradition at the time -- that women had to wait for a proposal of marriage from a man. [At the time, nuns were allowed to marry.]] St.Patrick agreed to allow women to propose to men every four years, during Leap Year [in some versions, it's only on Feb 29th]. Bridget proposed to Patrick only to be turned down. [St Patrick was a saint at the time and could not marry. As recompense, Patrick gave Bridey a gown, in some versions.]. [[http://www.care2.com/gates/holidays/leapyear/leapyear.html care2.com]]
<<
- Last f2f meeting until the end of Mar
- ProjectProposalAssignment approved or needing revision for Monday.
Final notes
- Most proposals need a few changes - details in number of posts and length, mainly. Once you've made the changes I've asked for, go ahead and start the project. No need to print out the proposal. Add a link to your blog or wiki from the proposal page and I'll add you to the blogroll.
- If I've asked for more extensive changes, let me know when they're ready, or set up a meeting with me for next Monday. I'll be in my office during class time: HS 314.
- Make your research part of posting. That is, rather than breaking projects into research > write, post about the research. Knowledge accumulates over time on a blog.

Be brave. Be thorough. Write to make the DocumentMode better than the original threads.
