[tw5] TiddlyWiki at the local Community College

Folks,

I am hoping to offer some tiddlywiki lessons with our local community
college, on the subject of our beloved TiddlyWiki.

I hope to build a local group of enthusiasts. It seems however the college
needs persuading it is a marketable course.

I have given this some thought but wonder what you would think would be a
good way to market it to those as yet uninitiated in the "TiddlyWiki
platform"

here is an example I have


- Ever dreamed of writing an App?
- Do you want to be in control of your own computer?
- Ever wanted to build a database of information for a hobby?
- Software is a key to the modern world, but being able to write your
own software makes you the locksmith.

- In the beginning there was the "General Purpose Computer", on which
others wrote programs.
- In time there came the "Universal Client", for which others built
websites
- Then came Internet 2.0 which others allowed you to add content
- Then came tiddlywiki, and all that went before it became yours.

I would appreciate your ideas.

Tony

Hi Tony

Doing the course is a great idea. Your bullet points are good.

One crazy possibility I’ve considered is to package a course as “personal effectiveness” or “personal organisation" and show people how to be more organised using the principles we’ve learned with TW. You’d still be teaching how to use TiddlyWiki, but within a broader agenda rooted on the idea that many people feel they would be more effective and successful if only they were a little better organised


Best wishes

Jeremy.

Jeremy,

Yes, I think “personal effectiveness” or “personal organisation" or even
"Personal Productivity" is a good approach, thanks

Ciao Tony

I'd think about who are the possible Students. What are there needs? Are
they computing specialists? Ordinary folk?

- The idea about improving organization is a good one. And we have
substantial plugin apps for supporting that (e.g. ToDoNow, Cardo, as well
as several simpler editable checklist systems).

- Another thought is "usage" focus. For instance, if I had known of TW when
I started training in anthropology I would have likely used it for
ethnographic notes immediately ... BUT I would have needed someone to Show
Me it can do those easily since I'm not primarily interested in software
principles, more like "will this do the job".

In other words matching participants objective needs. Some of your points
go that way ... Quite how one does that (match diverse interests) is an
interesting issue.

Best
Josiah

Tony,
If possible I would like to have your syllabus of the course when you
finalized!

I am curious how would a course can be designed to teach TW for research
work: like research notes, small databases, note taking and summarizing
references (like book, articles, reports) make plan, todo list, meeting
notes and all items can be done using Tiddlywiki for people involved in a
research!

I like the Cornell notes system in this case and it can be taught using TW!

See; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornell_Notes

I think these are type of work can be done very easily with Tiddlywiki and
absolutely interesting for colleague community!
