Frequently Asked Questions

From Scholariki | Our Scholar Wiki

What is Scholariki?
As students and educators ourselves, we noticed a lot of frustrations on both sides. Students are frustrated with the delivery of course content, and educators are frustrated with student's lack of engagement in course content. We started thinking, is there a better way to learn from our experiences as teachers, to talk about what does and doesn't work in a collaborative way without fear of judgment or scrutiny? That's when we launched Scholariki; a resource for educators to be built by educators. This is a safe space to learn about new technologies, to vent frustrations, to learn coping mechanisms, and to read about the experiences of others.

Who created Scholariki?
It was a project for students undergoing Project in Information Systems paper.

What is talk? What is discussion?
Every wiki page has an associated talk page, which can be used for discussion and to communicate with other users. Talk pages can be accessed by clicking the "discussion" tab at the top of the page. Simply edit the page as normal to add your comment. A talk page is actually very similar to any other wiki page, but it is in the "Talk" namespace, to keep it separate from the other articles.
