Hey Axel,

I noticed that you were making use of Help:Hosting courses and the sample course OWW.101 for 840.119. That's great. I am still in the process of trying to put the help pages for courses together so if you have any feedback, revisions or other useful tutorials you'd recommend, I'd love to hear it. You can of course edit the help pages yourself if you like.

Print page problems

Hi Reshma,

the Help:Hosting courses page is just fine. I found it easy to work with. However, as I tried to print the page using the 'printable version' function, the page did not print after the first graphics. It looked fine on the screen but the printout contained only the text until the first graph - nothing beyond. It does not seem to be a problem with my printer (HP Laserjet 1320) since the same thing happened when i printed to a PDF file (to generate a PDF output). I have no clue how to fix this and just wanted to let you know.

Have a good day, Axel

Hey Axel,

Looks like you found a pretty subtle bug. It should be fixed now. Thanks so much for pointing this out!

Naming of project pages

Hey Axel,

I changed 840.119:Projects so that each of the links pointed to 840.119:project 1 rather than just project 1. I thought this might help flag those pages as belonging to your class project so that others don't edit the pages. Hope this ok! Let me know if not.

Hi Reshma, thanks for taking care of the project page titles. That makes sense.

Regarding the course template I was just wondering why the subpages of my course like "people", "projects", and "help" do not make use of the template. Do I have to tell the system that I want to use the template (activate it)? How?

Best regards,

Hi Axel,

Yes you need to include the line {{Template:840.119}} at the top of the page in order for the template to be included. But it looks like you've already figured that out!  :)
