    Publishing as a PDF is more appropriate rather than printing as a books.
    Because, we have a lot of visual information not only pictures os photos but also media resources such as video.
    Media based information helps people to understand easily.

    Thank you :)

    May have to explain the internet stuff a little more for people that aren’t used to it all – i.e. I asked about scanning.
    maybe try and get some user testing done with all aspects of your wiki piece and see if it all works well.

    Whenever you give presentations, I always feel like I’m learning something new.

    It seemed like during Scott and Bob’s feedback, they felt strongly about the myredcross.com site that was recently developed. With the limited experience that I had with Red Cross, I already felt that I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of different sites and systems that I had to coordinate between. Do you see the Wiki being integrated with the current myredcross site?

    I give you props for tackling wiki pages, I’ve worked on two and they’ve never been easy tasks. And great job thoroughly researching all the avenues and obstacles you might just run into.

    I’m not entirely sure what the ‘next step’ is but I think you had mentioned that even if NYC chapter wouldn’t completely use it what about the rest of the chapters on a national level?

    I think the data entry aspect is one that is very important as its much about user experience for creating content as the design/formatting/composition and look of the pages.

    So how much maintenance is required back stage for a wiki?

    The Pdf on Toughbooks doesn’t seem to have been through well by the RC. Because it means you have to fire the laptop up, you need to jump through the Siebel hoop and you can’t access it on your smart phone.

    My suggestion is, if you feel confident to do so, is to make one half of your presentation a campaign and lobby for an open source and open access approach to manuals and volunteer information sharing. And the other half the actual wiki.

    I commend on the direction that you’ve taken since you proposed this at midterm.
    I think this is a great space for a long-term development, and it will be interesting to see how this unfolds until the final semester presentation.

    We could even use something like this for the Newschool.
    That constant flow of notices to your newschool spam.

    Sorry for the diversion, but keep pushing!

    I haven’t heard about this since the midterm presentation, but it seems as if you are making real progress despite the occasional roadblocks you have mentioned. I think your argument as to why the Red Cross should reevaluate their current handling of these documents and records is clear and concise.

    Kelly! I like the development that the wiki page has gone through so far. It has a cleaner look and feels more design conscientious than the previous iteration. The function and ability to upload documents is a good idea so that users could scan in hand drawn docs, notes, etc.

    I am not sure if I really get your point or not. I would like to see it is different from the wiki on its layout. May be more colorful?
    I think your project really solve the problem you aim to. GOOD JOB!
