Where's my module?
For a quick answer, try recent submissions.
The submission process
All modules submitted to Qedoc must be approved before being published on this site. For approval criteria, please see appropriate content. In general, provided that you have submitted a reasonably OK educational resource in a language we can understand, it should get approval.
One issue which people sometimes have problems with is the time it takes for approval. As much as 24 hours may elapse between submitting a module and its appearance on this site. Sometimes longer. If your educational resource is a good one, feel welcome to alert us by email and ask us to hurry up.
Normally when a module is processed by Qedoc, we send you an email with the result.
- If you don't get an email, maybe your email address doesn't work, or maybe the email got lost or filtered somewhere. Don't despair. Alert us by email and ask! Or look on this site anyway, just in case it got published.
- Sometimes people just send in modules which are so experimental that we can't possibly publish or even process them. These modules may just get deleted, but we'll probably send you an email anyway thanking you for your experiment and prompting you to evaluate the software with something just a little more serious.
- Sometimes people send in modules which, although some serious work has been done on them, are still clearly incomplete evaluation modules. We regret that due to our workload, we can no longer unlock these for you. For evaluation purposes, please try out any of the 1000+ modules already available for use and inspection.
- Sometimes modules are great, but have specific problems with them, such as missing image copyright information. In this case, we may email you back with a question.
- Or... you could be published!
Finding your published module
If a module is published on qedoc.org, it will appear in the main page list of recent updates and submissions. It will also appear on this useful page of recent updates. The module will also appear in a whole load of other places too, depending how it gets categorised. The same thing happens if you send in an update - you'll see the date next to your module change when the update finally gets processed.
The module page: when you click on the title of your module, you'll be taken through to your module's very own page on this wiki. The page gives lots of information about the module and tells you about different ways of download, distributing and using it.
Changed titles: it's amazing how often people send in modules with the title "quiz" or "test". The most talented, brilliant, well-qualified educationalists somehow completely lose their creativity when it comes to titles. Unfortunately we can't publish 100 modules called "quiz". For starters, every module has to have a unique title. And then it's also a good idea if the title actually describes things like the topic and level. So unfortunately we very often change the titles of modules. Be aware of this when looking for your module. Read the email we sent you, as it should alert you to this.
Searching by author name: one good way of finding and keeping track of your stuff is by using your name! Your name is one thing we don't usually change, and every module can be searched for by author name (use the search box on the left). Additionally, every author has a category page, which is a special page where all the modules of a particular author are listed.
