Jo I did receive your message, but have not yet corrected it on laceioli. Since Christmas eve I have had half my apartment in darkness. Every time I tried to use my computer everything went dark, and I was afraid to damage the memory. So I have been offline for most of January. Just 2 days ago I decided to move my whole computer desk to another wall where I do have reliable power. I wasn't ignoring you (don't ever think that), I just couldn't go online to fix your links. I will do that before the week ends. Lorelei
Jo, I have an answer. There are 2 places you can post notices about your ebooks. And I think you should use both.
First: Everyone has the option of posting a permanent link to books they have written.
Look in the upper right hand corner of the screen. There is a box with your name on it. Click on SETTINGS. That takes you to your profile page. It contains all your answers to the sign-up questions. Look at the last question. It asks about books you have written, and where they may be obtained. You can add the titles of your books there, along with links to the website.
You can go to that page and edit anything you have posted there, at any time. If you write more books, you can add them. Don't forget to SAVE.
Jo I had thought you might have more contact with individual students. What might that will use Devon's ideas as well, would be for me to start a discussion which will include Jo's url in its description. And I'll explain how anyone who wants help with her lesson material can put the questions there. Once I get it set up, you might want to put a direct link to that particular discussion onto your website, inviting those using your work to ask their questions in our discussion area. This is an opportunity to CREATE more back and forth with students using your site.
Jo, you are definitely allowed to mention your website. But we already have included it among our ONLINE RESOURCES page in the BEGINNERS group. I want to offer you the opportunity to use our site to converse with your students, whenever they contact you with questions. They would have to join laceioli in order to be able to ask questions. And all of their questions and your answers would be public.
My question now is what is the best way to set this up. I could set up a separate group for those using your website. Or I could create a DISCUSSION in the BEGINNERS GROUP devoted to your website and conversations about it. I can also set up some links on the opening page of laceioli to make your section easy to find.
I would like it to be possible for other experienced lacemakers also to answer questions about material on your website, if they are so inclined and if you don't object.
I've told you before that I think your lace lessons, with those cute little animated stitches, are wonderful. If you want to use laceioli to communicate with your students about details they are having trouble with, please do. Just tell your students to join and you can have back and forth communication with them, with pictures. Please visit our BOBBINLACE BEGINNGERS group. We have only just started so there isn't much to see just yet. I'm trying to set up a lesson for braided/plaited lace, but it isn't ready yet.
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join whatever groups interest you. Post some photos of your lace. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
