This page outlines a process for general members of the community capturing information from a webinar delivered in Powerpoint and transferring it into the community wiki. Note, presenters may author directly into the Wiki if willing.
The knowledge we capture from any given presentation may go on a single page of the wiki OR it may be spread across several pages and hyperlinked via word in the text of the first page. If you are not familiar with how wikis work please review Wikipedia.
The content should be drafted in a using two levels of heading (Heading 1 and Heading 2). Heading 1 should correspond to a potential new page in the wiki, if it is a substantial subtopic worthy of its own page. Heading 2 can just be normal sub-headers within the page, the same as Wikipedia.
The webinar knowledge capture process is:
- Create a document that can be shared and edited by multiple authors (e.g. Google Docs)
- Before starting to author, consider any existing content in the wiki and how your new content will integrate with that. Copy existing content into the word document if appropriate and colour code it to differentiate from new content.
- Review the PowerPoint presentation of the webinar and firstly try to guess any Level 1 and 2 Headings. Type them into the Word document.
- Capture some general content from the PowerPoint slides and copy into a word document
- Ask the facilitator (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the webinar transcripts and aim to fill out the text in the same kind of narrative style as Wikipedia.
- Underline any text that may need to be hyperlinked to another page. Please links word relating to any of the topics listed in the Wiki Index at http://iot.engineersaustralia.org.au/wiki.html/
- Send the draft to the presenter for feedback.
- Next, have it reviewed by one or more third parties (ideally recognized experts in the subject matter),
- Have the document approved by a core member of the community designated for approving wiki content.
- Upload the content yourself, or if you don't have permissions, ask a core member or the community facilitator to do it on your behalf.
