BOSCO Web 2.0 Lesson 5 BOSCO Web 2.0 Lesson 5 Document Transcript

  • Lesson
5:

Using
Web
2.0
Application—Making
a
 Contribution
to
the
World
Wide
Web
 Community
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Goals
of
this
lesson:

This
lesson
will
familiarize
the
user
with
one
 common
Web
2.0
application—Wikispaces,
or
more
specifically
the
 BOSCO­Uganda
Wikispace
 ­The
user
will
learn
what
a
Wikispace
is
used
for
and
why
it
is
 considered
to
be
an
important
Web
2.0
application

 
 ­The
user
will
become
a
member
of
the
BOSCO
Wikispace,
enabling
 him
or
her
to
make
a
personal
contribution
to
the
site
through
 posting
of
text,
documents,
photos,
links,
or
other
relevant
materials
 
 ­The
user
will
learn
how
to
edit
pages
relevant
to
his/her
location,
 i.e.,
users
in
Pagak
will
learn
how
to
edit
the
Pagak
Wikispace
page
 as
to
benefit
and
educate
people
in
their
location

  • A.

What
is
a
Wikispace?
 A
Wikispace
site
is
a
fully
editable
webpage
for
one
or
many
communities.

It
is
a
 place
on
the
web
where
community
members
can
come
together
to
add
their
own
 content
to
its
pages.

When
individuals
from
different
locations
can
come
together
to
 meet
on
the
web
and
add
their
own
content
(i.e.,
postings),
we
call
this
Web
2.0
 collaboration.


 The
purpose
of
the
BOSCO
Wikispace
site
is
to
encourage
BOSCO
users
at
each
 location
to
empower
their
own
local
community
using
the
Internet.

On
the
BOSCO
 Wikispace,
users
will
find
a
home
page
for
their
location.

That
means
Pagak
has
a
 page,
Coope
has
a
page,
Pabo
has
a
page,
etc.


 Users
in
each
location
should
become
familiar
with
how
to
post
content
on
the
 BOSCO
Wikispace.

Users
may
post
any
(appropriate)
information
that
they
want
on
 this
site.

As
an
example,
we
have
already
seen
some
users
post
farming
proposals,
 some
teachers
are
journaling
(blogging)
about
life
during
the
war,
some
people
are
 adding
photos
from
their
location,
others
are
adding
short
stories
and
news…and
 the
list
goes
on
and
on!
 Remember
these
pages
are
on
the
Internet
for
everyone
to
see
around
the
world.

 This
is
the
way
that
people
around
the
world
can
get
to
know
who
you
are!

Act
 wisely
and
responsibly
and
don’t
be
afraid
to
add
your
own
content
to
the
spaces
of
 the
BOSCO
Wikispace.


 Task:

Go
to
www.bosco­uganda.wiksipaces.com

Editing
Wikispace
Pages,
and
adding
your
own
page
 Once
you
have
registered
for
Wikispaces
and
have

to
be
a

of
 the
BOSCO

you

post
stories,

projects,
journal

and
many
other
things.

You

also
edit
 pages
that
other
people
have
posted
on.

Remember
that
this
space
is
your
own,
 so
make
it
great!

Each
BOSCO
location
(e.g.
Pagak,
Pabo,
Coope,
etc.)
has
a
link
 on
the
left
hand
side
of
the
Wikispace
which
will
direct
your
to
your
Wikispace
 homepage.


 
 Task:

User
will
edit
a
previously
existing
Wikispace
page.


 ‐Go
to
www.bosco‐uganda.wikispaces.com
and
sign
into
your
Wikispace
 account.


 ‐After
signing
in,
click
on
the
link
for
your
location—let’s
pretend
that
I
am
in
 Pagak
for
this
lesson,
so
I
will
want
to
edit
within
the
Pagak
homepage.


 



 
 
 
 
 Links
for
 
 each
 location’s
 home
page
 
 are
found
 here.

Click
 on
your
 
 location
to
 go
to
your
 
 homepage.
 
 
 
 You
will
begin
to
see
the
Pagak
homepage.

After
the
page
loads,
as
an
 example
page
to
edit,
I
will
click
on
the
first
link
at
the
top
left
of
the
 Pagak
page
(“Pagak
BOSCO
Users…”)
 

  • 
 
 
 
 




 
 
 
 
 
 
 When
this
page
opens
up,
you
can
begin
editing
its
contents.

Editing
means
 changing
the
text,
adding
to
the
text,
correcting
the
text,
and
adding
links,
 photos,
or
other
items.

To
edit
any
page
in
Wikispaces,
click
“Edit
this
Page”
at
 the
top
of
the
window.
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  • You
will
see
the
toolbar
 • 
 emerge
above
the
 
 page’s
text.

On
the
left
 
 you
have
font
 adjustments.

Tools
for
 
 adding
photos,
links,
 
 and
other
items
are
on
 
 the
right.
 
 
 
 After
clicking
“Edit
This
Page”
the
page
will
load
and
you
will
see
a
 tool
bar
on
the
top
allowing
you
to
make
various
changes
to
the
page.

 Let’s
start
with
the
easiest
change
to
make:

adding
text
 
 Editing
the
text
is
very
simple.

You
just
use
the
mouse
and
cursor
to
add
 text
in
the
same
way
you
would
if
it
was
a
Word
document.

As
an
 example,
let’s
add
my
name
to
the
page
and
a
sentence
about
myself.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 The
sentence
I
added
is
highlighted
in
blue
 above.

I
simply
placed
the
cursor
there
 and
began
typing.

It
is
that
simple!
 
 
 Once
you
are
finished
editing
or
adding
text
 to
the
page,
you
will
want
to
click
“Save”
 located
on
the
right
hand
side
of
the
toolbar
above.


 
 After
clicking
“Save,”
the
webpage
will
load
and
will
publish
(show)
the
 changes
you
have
made.


 
 

  • Task:

User
will
add
a
photo
to
the
page
 Adding
photos
is
also
very
easy.

Navigate
to
the
page
you
want
to
edit
and
 then
click
“Edit
This
Page”
just
as
you
did
above.
 
 Click
on
the
“Image”
icon
in
the
toolbar
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 After
clicking
on
the
icon
(picture)
a
popup
window
will
emerge.

Wikispace
 stores
photos
on
the
web
in
its
own
library.

If
your
photo
is
not
yet
in
the
 BOSCO
Wikispace
library,
you
will
need
to
upload
one
from
your
computer.

 Click
on
“Upload
Files”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 • 

  • • After
clicking
“Upload
Files”
you
will
click
on
“Browse.”

This
will
open
 another
popup
window
on
your
computer.

At
that
point
you
must
browse
 through
your
computers
files
and
select
the
picture
file
that
you
want
to
 upload.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Click
on
the
file
you
want
to
upload
and
then
press
“Select”
or
“Open”
at
the
 bottom
right
of
the
popup
window.
 
 Select
file
you
 
 want
to
 upload
by
 
 clicking
on
it.
 
 
 




 
 Click
“Open”
 
 

  • After
clicking
“Open”
you
will
be
taken
back
to
the
upload
menu;
click
 “Upload”
 
 Uploading
might
take
a
few
minutes;
be
patient.

You
will
know
that
it
 is
done
uploading
when
you
see
a
small
version
of
your
photo
appear
 in
the
window.
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 









Once
your
photo
is
uploaded,
it
will
now
be
in
the
BOSCO
Wikispaces
library
of
 images.

Click
on
“Insert
Files”
in
the
above
window
 
 
 You
must
remember
the
file
name
of
your
photo.

In
this
case,
my
photo
is
 called
“Pagak.jpg”;

Click
on
the
“P”
at
the
bottom
of
the
library
to
be
taken
to
 the
place
where
all
photos
beginning
with
letter
“P”
are
stored.
 


 
 
 
 
 
 

  • 
 Once
you
find
your
image
on
the
page,
simply
double
click
and
it
will
be
 automatically
inserted
into
your
Wikispace
page
that
you
are
currently
 editing
 
 Adjust
the
size
of
the
photo
inside
the
Wikispace
page
you
are
editing
by
 clicking
on
the
“+”
or
“‐“
button.

Smaller
photos
take
less
time
to
load
and
a
 preferable.


 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Click
“Save”
on
the
toolbar
and
your
image
will
be
saved
on
the
Wikispace
 page.

Congratulations,
you
have
just
published
a
photo
on
the
web!
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  • D.

Adding
a
new
page
to
the
BOSCO
Wikispaces
 Similar
to
editing
a
pre
existing
page,
you
can
also
add
an
entirely
new
page
to
the
 Wikispaces.

This
is
useful
if
you
want
to
make
a
new
page
that
will
solely
contain
 information
on
your
organization
or
program,
for
example.


 
 User
task:

Create
your

unique,
new

 • As
an
example,
I

“Pagak”
link
on

so
I
will
simply
 write,
“Pagak

 I
entered
my

 will
soon
 
 become
a

on
the
icon.

When
it
appears,
 simply
click,
“Add
Link”
and
your
link
will
become
active,
leading
to
the
 creation
of
a
new
Wikispace
page
 
 
 
 

  • 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 • After
you
have
finished
this,
click
“Save”
on
the
toolbar
at
the
top;

Your
link
 will
now
become
active
on
the
BOSCO
Wikispace
 
 
 
 
 
 
 • After
clicking
“Save”
the
page
will
load
normally.

When
it
loads
click
on
your
 new
link
to
be
taken
to
a
new,
fresh
page
that
you
can
begin
to
 Click
on
your
 add
content
on
 new
link:
 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 • When
you
open
your

in
the
blank
 space
here
 

 
 
 
 
 • Begin
typing
any
text,
photos,
links
or
other
content
