Here comes checkpoint 1! Polishing your posts and details on marking

The first checkpoint for A1 is Sunday night, so I thought this would be a good time to review some key information about the assignment.

Please read the following information carefully and ask any questions you have in the comments.

Due date

You must have everything done by 11.59pm Sunday 13 August.

Clare will mark posts as she finds them when she visits your forums.

What you need to do by Sunday

  • Quizzes: complete all to date (Week 4, 6 and 8)
  • Activities: complete
    • all weekly activities to date (Week 3, 5 and 7) OR
    • two of the three activities to date and use your get out of jail free card to skip an activity.

Polishing up your posts

You should be thinking about polishing up your blog posts ready for submission.

There are a number of pieces of content already on the site that will help you with this task.

I’ve also just added some additional material that might help you with this process:

Tag your posts

Please add tags to your post to help Clare keep track of your activities.

We’d appreciate it if you could use the exact tags we’ve listed below.

Add one tag for the topic:

  • Reference
  • Reading and literacy
  • Information and digital literacy

Add one tag for the week:

  • Week 3
  • Week 5
  • Week 7

Add one tag for the activity type:

  • Trends
  • Issues
  • Twitter chat
  • Service reviews
  • Program reviews
  • Argue a point


Clare will be marking all forum posts. Thanks Clare!

You don’t need to do anything to ‘submit’ for this checkpoint. Just make sure you’ve completed all the activities and quizzes by 11.59pm Sunday. Clare will head to your forums to find and mark your posts.

If you’ve used your get out of jail free card, Clare will mark two posts of 20. If you have completed all three activities, Clare will mark three posts out of 40.

    Hi Kate,
    I am having a problem inserting images in my forum posts. If I edit my posts and insert images as instructed it works well and I can wrap around text to the image. However whenever I press submit the formatting gets lost and all images end up on the right side of the page and no text wrap around. I don’t want to get marked down for bad presentation so any help appreciated.

    Good catch Steve. I’ve fixed the date. No time travel required.
