Designs Wiki Presentation - Project Update

  1. 1. d.e.s.i.g.n.s wiki <br />Project Update: Learner Needs & Tool Analysis <br />Developed by Bronya Wilkins – Aug 09<br />1<br />
  2. 2. Assessment 4 – E-learning Project<br />Hi, I’m Bron<br />I’m a student in the second cluster of the Diploma of E-learning.<br />As some of you may know, for my E-learning Project I have chosen to set up a collaborative graduation site.<br />I have named this site d.e.s.i.g.n.s, which stands for:<br />Diploma of E-learning – Success, Inspiration, Graduation & Networking Site.<br />
  3. 3. Learner Needs<br />1<br />The first stage of the project was to analyse the learning needs of the group (i.e. You!)<br />To do this I created an online survey to find out your thoughts on: <br />a<br /><ul><li>The purpose of the site
  4. 4. What should be included in the site </li></ul>r<br /><ul><li>The features available to use in the site.
  5. 5. How you would like to learn the site and obtain support. </li></ul>Many thanks to those who responded tothe survey!<br />
  6. 6. The Results: Purpose of the Site<br />Some responses were: <br />To use as collaborative tool for everyone in the e-Learning diploma to participate. To reflect with individual/group achievements etc and of course graduation which is something I’m looking forward to.<br />To provide a venue for we Diploma of eLearning students to celebrate successful completion of our course, and congratulate each other re same. <br />a colourful site where we can come together (no geographical disadvantage) and celebrate our achievements. <br />To document and celebrate the achievements of the graduating students<br />A site that can be used for networking where we can keep in touch with the people who we have studied with over the past two years<br />To provide a convivial get-together and farewell as we go our separate ways.<br />TO RECAP ON KEY LEARNINGS<br />
  7. 7. The Results: Site Features<br />You rated wiki features as follows: <br />Site Feature<br />Essential<br />Nice to Have<br />Unnecessary<br />75%<br />25%<br />0<br />Discussion forum<br />62.5%<br />37.5%<br />0<br />Activity updates<br />75%<br />12.5%<br />12.5%<br />Event and/or calendar management<br />37.5%<br />50%<br />12.5%<br />Posting photos/images/videos<br />87.5%<br />12.5%<br />0<br />Attaching documents<br />50%<br />37.5%<br />12.5%<br />Profile creation for each user<br />0%<br />75%<br />25%<br />RSS Feeds <br />, <br />Addition of widgets (e.g. links to your facebook<br />0%<br />62.5<br />37.5<br />delicious, blog site etc)<br />25%<br />50%<br />25%<br />Blogging tool<br />50%<br />37.5%<br />12.5%<br />Site map<br />25%<br />50%<br />25%<br />Site search functionality<br />
  8. 8. The Results: Site Lifespan<br />Question:<br />Should the d.e.s.i.g.n.s wiki be defined around a limited lifespan (i.e. from now until after we graduate), or should it be kept going indefinitely?<br />Results:<br /><ul><li>50% - An undefined lifespan - from now until we don't use it anymore
  9. 9. 50% - A defined lifespan - from now until after graduation</li></ul>Decision:<br />Depending on how we use it, the designs site may be useful to continue as a communication tool past the life of the Diploma. <br />We will let it take on a life of its own and see where it goes!<br />
  10. 10. The Results: Induction & Support<br />Question:<br />What method would you prefer to learn how to use the d.e.s.i.g.n.s wiki? (i.e. how would you like to be inducted?). <br />a<br />Preferred Method: <br />Attending an online group facilitation session facilitated by the project manager/ site administrator <br />Question:<br />After induction, what type of ongoing support (up until the agreed upon lifespan of the site) do you believe is appropriate for our d.e.s.i.g.n.s wiki? <br />a<br />Preferred Method: <br />Discussion forum on the d.e.s.i.g.n.s wiki that other learners can respond to to help each other<br />
  11. 11.

  12. 12. Additional Criteria<br />Other wiki features I thought would be important/useful and included in my research were: <br />Site Search functionality<br />Email notifications<br />Web based (i.e. A Hosted site - doesnt sit on server)<br />Upload logo<br />User profiles<br />Free<br />Page Hierachies/<br />Folders<br />Posting Photos <br />and videos<br />Addition of <br />RSS Feeds<br />Product based <br />User Help documentation / forums<br />Addition of Widgets and Gadgets<br />Set permissions on pages/site<br />WYSIWYG Editing <br />(e.g. No coding knowledge necessary)<br />Archive/history<br />Tagging/Metadata<br />
