Webmakers! Welcome to this week's testing.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Webmaker/Testing

There's a couple of things we're focusing on this week: one test is to do with Training, and one related to resources to help those wanting to align with the Web Literacy Map.

We really value your input, so why not block out some time (in your calendar, if you use one) to dive into these resources and give us feedback?

And, if it helps, I've written a blog post about the Web Literacy alignment resources here:

Hey webmakers, I've created a tutorial to go with a blank version of the 3D presentation I showed you last week: http://mzl.la/1gD7S04

How can I make it better? What needs further explanation? Feedback encouraged! :-D

Thanks +ankit gadgil  I'll explain it here for you, but think it's too advanced to put in the basic tutorial accompanying the resource.

Basically, each slide looks like this:

<div class="step slide" data-x="0" data-y="-1500">
  <q>2</q>
  </div>

If you copy and paste one of these blocks, you then just need to change the x, y and z co-ordinates. The thing to remember is that z is depth, and the y axis is inverted when it comes to CSS transforms.

Try adding this:

<div class="step slide" data-x="0" data-y="0" data-z="-2000">
  <q>Hello Ankit!</q>
  </div>

Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.

Last thing: you can add 'data-rotate' to each axis as well. So, for example, this will rotate the slide round (from its middle) on the y axis:

data-rotate-y="90"

Have a play and let us know how you get on! :-)

Hey all, ever since I first used Thimble I've wanted to use it for presenting with. It must be the teacher in me. ;-)

Finally, thanks to the latest updates from the Product Team and my half-arsed attempt to remix the impress.js presentation framework, I've managed to put something together: http://bit.ly/oppi-mozilla

Feel free to make (much) better!

Here's a crazy graphical thought based on Mozilla's web literacy map (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Webmaker/WebLiteracyMap). Could we build a diagnostic on top of it? Should we? (and is anyone already making it?) #webliteracy   #rookie

<sigh> Another commentator that doesn't understand how Mozilla works. It's a community - and a diverse one at that.

I am red/green color blind, and can often switch colors by accident (as I choose colors from the embedded wheels).

I have to color by code and not the way it appears. Does anyone have a favorite resource of color codes. I do not need too many just your basics.

Hey webmakers, I'm posting this on behalf of +Laura Hilliger, really as it's all her work. Give it a try and tell us what you think!
A couple of months ago my extraordinarily productive and talented colleague, Laura Hilliger, created something epic: a huge spreadsheet of dependencies and next steps for the Web Literacy Map. From this she, used her HTML, CSS and JavaScript... | Doug Belshaw | Web Literacy Lead for the non-profit Mozilla Foundation.

+Laura Hilliger This is amazing. I can not wait to stare at the code and see if I can make something similar.

I will be using this in all my classes.

The Web Literacy Map co-created with the community is now at v1.1.0 at webmaker.org. This version incorporates improvements by Kate Hudson to the look and feel. Much cleaner! :-D
