How to Use the Site
- To Ask A question: Try typing
"What is your name?" in the text box and she will respond. If you
have not entered a password you can simply press return to submit your
question. If you have entered a password you will have greater editing
control with the textbox but you must click on the "Click Here" link above
the text box to submit your question.
- To Provide an Answer: If you ask her a question that she does not have
a response to she will let you know and give you an opportunity to provide her
with a response. You must enter your password (Provided by your instructor)
and full Name (First and last name) in order to provide a response.
- Record Keeping (Author, Hits, and Rating): If you provide Anne
with a response to a question she will give you credit as the author each time
she is asked that question. Anne records the number of times that your question has been asked so that you can track how your response has been a benefit to other students. The number of hits (H) represents the number of times that your question has been viewed. The rating (R) represents the quality of your response as evaluated by your peers. A
low or negative rating indicates that your response is incorrect or contains errors.
- Editing or Viewing Your Questions: If you want to view all of the
questions that you have submitted enter your password and full name and then
type "List my questions" in the questions box. A numbered list of the
questions that you have submitted will appear. The list will also show the
number of hits and the rating of your question.
- Quiz Me Mode: If you want to view and evaluate other students questions and responses you can type
"Quiz me" in the question box. This will randomly select a question from Anne's
knowledge base and show both the question and the response.
You must evaluate whether the provided response is accurate. If Anne's response to the question is correct simply type
"Correct" in the question box. If Anne's response is incorrect simply type
"Incorrect". Your evaluation will be recorded and used in the assessment of the author's response. The total number
of questions that you have evaluated is displayed when you type "List my Questions".
- Review Mode: If you want to review student approved questions and responses you can type
"Review" in the question box. This will randomly select a question from Anne's
knowledge base of questions and responses. Since these responses
have been approved by students, any evaluation of these responses is ignored.
- Adding Images and Links: If you want to add an image or link to your response
click on Anne's picture when editing a response.
