Wiki Day

A formal definition of Wiki is "A web site or set of web pages that allows almost anyone to edit and add content". MediaWiki, a free and open source software developed using PHP originally intended for use on Wikipedia, which is lately emerging as a handy Content Management System (CMS). We, at EnhanceEdu both use and promote MediaWiki as a CMS for preparing and managing course content. For the very purpose of enhancing content development and management process, EnhanceEdu conducts and organizes WikiDays.

Why

MediaWiki comes with a wide range of features. You can prepare and organize content in the form of text using MediaWiki's rich formatting tools, use images to make it more readable, add documents (WORD, PDF, RTF, etc.) and presentations (PPT's) to support your content, and even embed audio/video files to make your content more lively. We, through WikiDays, help you learn and understand how to use these features to prepare and manage content with MediaWiki.

Where

WikiDays are conducted both at EnhanceEdu, IIIT-H and at the respective college premises. When the date and venue is fixed, our Wiki experts will deliver the session at the respective venues.

What we offer

A typical WikiDay would include topics like:

  • Introduction to CMS
  • MediaWiki as CMS
  • Formatting features of MediaWiki

Principles of Programming (POP)

EnhanceEdu conducts the Principles of Programming (POP) workshop as part of its productivity enhancement workshop series. The POP workshop is conducted over a 2-week period in the summer and is a wonderful opportunity for teachers to learn how to teach the concepts of programming using modern educational and software practices, apply to build web 2.0 applications and connect them to principles of software architectures and design.

Objectives and Target Audience

The objective of the course is to bring college teachers teaching introductory programming and computer science up to date with a modern way of teaching and learning programming which emphasizes a conscious use of the principles of programming to build Web 2.0 applications.

College teachers will find this course useful because it introduces

  • Principles of programming
  • Modern applications environment based on the Web 2.0, like Gmail, Facebook, Flickr, etc.
  • Modern software development processes and practices (like version control, unit testing, agile methods, etc.)

Prerequisites

  • Familiarity with programming (in any language)
  • Enthusiasm to learn and teach!
  • Commitment to work hands on installing and debugging software.

Technology Toolkit

A Technology Toolkit can be a toolkit spanning through a wide range of technologies. However, we at EnhanceEdu consider the technologies related only to purposes of enhancing education and training in our toolkit. Our Technology toolkit workshops cover tools such as CMS, LMS, Versioning tools, Project Management tools, etc.

Why

The Technology Toolkit workshop is a 2-day workshop that exposes various open source tools. It covers tools like operating system, project management, content management etc.

What we Offer

  • Day 1:
    • Linux (Operating System)
    • SVN & Redmine (Version Control & Project management tools)
  • Day 2:
    • MediaWiki (Content Management System)
    • Moodle (Learning Management System)

How

The workshops are completely hands-on, where the workshop attendees will work step-by-step with the mentor. This helps the attendees to retain more from the workshop.

The CIT course is conducted in the 'Learning-by-doing' methodology, which provides hands-on experience. It bridges the gap between theory and practice thereby enabling the student to understand the concepts better and apply them in project-centered scenarios similar to what is being followed in the industry. A mentor to student ratio of 1:10 is followed. Shown below is the retention rate of various learning modes:

  • Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

    A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

    Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

    Five quacking zephyrs jolt my wax bed. Flummoxed by job, kvetching W. zaps Iraq. Cozy sphinx waves quart jug of bad milk. A very bad quack might jinx zippy fowls. Few quips galvanized the mock jury box. Quick brown dogs jump over the lazy fox. The jay, pig, fox, zebra, and my wolves quack! Blowzy red vixens fight for a quick jump.
