For Instructors

For the purposes of the long term maintenance of the infinite series module, the following information provides UBC instructors with an idea of how to use and maintain its content.

Functionality

The content management system WordPress was used to present material in the module, but the content of the infinite series module is pulled automatically from the UBC Wiki (which is an installation of a MediaWiki) on the Faculty of Science "namespace", which is a restricted access area on the wiki.

Changes made on the wiki are automatically reflected on the UBC Blog. The blog imports its content from the wiki.

Editor Access

Editing the infinite series module content is currently intended for instructors only. You may want to edit content on the blog and/or the wiki.

  • If you would like to edit content on the UBC Wiki, contact the CTLT Wiki Support to request access to the Faculty of Science namespace. CTLT will direct you to the appropriate person to allow you access to the faculty of science namespace, but circa May 2012, Andrea Han (han@science.ubc.ca) was the contact in CTLT to contact to provide access to content on the Science Namespace.
  • If you would like to edit content on the UBC Blog, please contact Rajiv Gupta, Greg Mayer, or CTLT blog support to request access to the blog.

By no means does the infinite series module have to remain a resource that can only be edited by instructors.

Editing Guidelines

When editing content in the wiki, you may want to take the following into account:

  • changes made on the wiki are automatically made on the UBC Blog, but not in the PDF version of the module
  • removing a page on the Blog does not remove content on the wiki

Therefore,

  • if there is content you want to remove for a particular offer of your course, remove it from the Blog, not the Wiki, so that it is available for future offers
  • if there is content that contains errors, you need only make changes on the UBC Wiki and a PDF version of the module content (if one is available for download)

PDF versions of the module content can be generated with the UBC Wiki book creator.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics was installed in January 2012 to record usage statistics. If you would like to gain access to the Analytics account, Greg Mayer or Rajiv Gupta may have the Google Analytics account credentials.
