WikiReflectionWeek7

Glad You Made It!


So, now that you have found your way here, (sorry if it got confusing. Please let me know if it did so i can fix it!!) you can now read my reflection of Week 7: The Introduction of Wikis. So as you have probably read I started wikis this week. I am loving wikis and hating them at the same time. I really enjoy the customizationthat is available to do if you can understand it. If you clicked on the link you can see that I colored and formatted my own profile page on this wiki, and yes, it took me a while to figure it out. But I got it!!

The first thing we were to do this week, before we even got into wikis, was to publish a new style of posts. This style was to link 4 blog posts that we found to be good and summarize into one sentence or phrase what that post was about. I actually really liked this style the more I looked through everyone's posts. By doing this, you not only showed what you thought about others' posts, but you got to see what kind of post you published; this style was a really neat concept.

Then came the mystery day of Wednesday. Today we got our next assignment for the week: Wikis. We worked a little bit in class, and I cannot tell you how I did each of the steps. HTML lingo is like another language, which is why I am happy MorganAdmin added FormattingRules or I would be lost. Below the double line is code for the comment area, double clicking edits, five = signs is a certain type of header, linking is blah blah blah. That is a lot to take in on top of other learnings, so that is part of why I wanted to write my weekly review in here, practice, because it makes perfect.

For part of our assignment of the week we were to read some wiki chapters and reflect/summarize/ comment on the pages. I wrote a summary for WikiWebCollaborationChap1. And boy was I happy that I did that, this chapter gave me the basics for wikis. As part of the roles that people play with wikis are the revisers, and again I am happy they are there for the naive people like me because I posted in the wrong part of the page. #WikiProblems. And I think I just linked a wiki page or created a link to page that doesn't exist. #Wik
wah, not going to happen again. I also started the ball rolling on SecretMediaRevolution . Here I just threw a thought out about what I think. Any thoughts readers? The final thing I did was comment on JackTuthill 's post in TheWikiWayChap10, giving again, my thought on what he saw.

The last thing that I want to mention is the whole history page that each page has. This concept is really cool, it makes following a wiki so much easier because the font and the format are so similar that it all looks the same.

As for this week, more wikis and more searching. Go!

P.S. if you want to go back to my blog.
