Status of collections

It should be easy to see the status of material : i.e. just started - in progress - needs some work - ready for use - update required.

    I’m not sure what this means. Could you explain please, Ralf?

    If a teachers has a first look on a collection he should be able to identify easily in which status the collection is in the moment. - We have started this collection. Its far from beiing complete or ready to use. We are planning to add more material and to didactize it over next time. Join the community and work with us or come back later in a few weeks. - We are just in progress to collect or validate. Its an intensive active working phase in the moment. Please give constructive feedback. - We are just polishing it but we think with a little work it can be used in learning situation. – For the moment the collection is ready to use. - The collection was created in 2009. This collection is now outdated. Some material is not up to date. Be carefull when you use or start the update here.

    If you think about collection not only a collection of sources but also didactical scenarios, progression etc. including material, assignments, handouts for group work it makes sense to inform whether its a draft or a finished scenario. I imagine that in some time we will have communities for thousands of topics and for some topics we will have dozens of communities and collections. A teacher searching for concepts needs a quick overview if he needs a concept for next week lesson.

    I’m not sure if a collection is ever ‘finished’? It’s not a course, so it’s the kind of thing that continually gets updated and tweaked.

    That being said, it might be useful to have a ‘most recent activity’ on a collection? Would that be useful? :)

    Related question: I can’t find a way to see who is following and/or is a member of a collection (not sure if there is a difference here). In communities too. I click on the member profile icons and nothing happens. No member profile icons in collections.

    Also related to collections, it would be great to see who has added a resource to a collection, and then be able to rate it some way (stars?). Eventually, someone could earn a reputation (badges?) through a lot of high (or low)-star resources that they add.

    OK, now I see members are visible in the Overview tab of Communities. Clicking on the profile icon list in the community description (right side bottom of community background graphic) should lead to the overview page (or rename the Overview to Members). Then add that capability to Collections as well?
