  • content: synopsis of all previous deliverables / publications (not much new content)
  • in the content, we should also focus on the fact that wikis are broader than Wikipedia
  • budget: 1000 Euros each partner (for translation)
  • initial application production of CD - we decided to not produce a CD and have everything online

Wiki expert network: 

*define  clear goals of the network

*define the profile of the experts

*discuss legal issues

* Competition within the network? Are experts having overlapping roles? Cooperation possible?

*What do partners of the network need? (What do they provide?)

* Do we have the same expectations on tasks? Same expectations on economic outcomes? - what services will the experts provide?

* Adobe Connect as an alternative to a physical meeting?

  • Which type(s) of business models do we have? (we have define some approach, but it may be needed to have clear(er) communication and dissemination about it (towards experts and towards customers).



WP7 & WP8 :

  • T8.1: Framework of the evaluation report. All the questions and guidelines are located in this section. It is recommended to read it and use the set of questions for the interviews to teachers and experts.

We leave the deliverable as it, and we will mention in D8.3 and the final report that they modify and adapt the evaluation framework thanks to trainees feedbacks. We must take advantage that it was very well rated in the interim report.

  • What can be improved for projects to come? Groupwork and synthesis Discussion about how to improve the evaluation framework (9.1). Is it a key outcome of the project ? we should also promote it and encourage its usage ? 
  • Quality-evaluation: Collect our Xwiki-experiences
  • Tools seldom self explanatory. We should have had a common intro to tools like XWiki  
  • Single source. Makes it easier to updatate deliverables with new lessons learned
  • Concerning 8.3, MAC-Team is developping this deliverable. 
  • Pascal made a review of the various contributions. They are very heterogeneous in terms of level of content and analytical approach.
  • on a general basis, the number and the types of trainees/participants, of interviewees,  are very different from one country to another.
  • Despite that level of differences, we can notice clear feedbacks in the contributions.
  • Some partners included the detailed statistic reports on the questionnaires (directly extracted from the on-line questionnaire system), we do not plan to check those in details.
  • We may come back to the individual partners for further details or explanation, but so far Pascal indicated the possiblity to deliver a global level report. That report should start to be built on the xwiki from next week onwards.
  • not enough informaiton in the contributions to also answer this type of questions:
  • How to go beyond the simple compliance level of the report? --> to validate the pedagogical framework, what work and didn't work, and the e-book can re-use that (testimonies, obstacles removed by wiki usages, skills... not to make in global assertive comments, but at least to identify cases, practices which validate that or conditions which support it).
  • How do we want to use it beyond the project itself?








A parallel workshop with plenaries each of the 3 days in Santiago, to share and update.

Experts are studying and answering the question :  is the patrimony attractive enough for you to commit to pay 200e per year and spend at least 20 hours per years since jan 2014 to be part of the network of experts, what needs to be added and improved ?

Their intermediary report at the end of Santiago meeting is here (needs & recommandations) 



4) (eventually 2.3 pedagogical framework, but not that useful, just give a brief look here 

5) website and related public tools (linkedin and twitter pages/account accessible from webpage; xwiki public part only for content part but not for design)

7) wikiversity announcement :

8) maybe prequestionnaire and postquestionnaire for trainers and students (taking into account that the wikiskills constortium considers it has to be improved, so it's just to give you an idea)
