A workshop will be held on Zoom on January 8th, Friday night, 7pm EST. You must pre-register for the event so I can send you an invitation. If you did not already sign up, send me a direct message on iNat.
Another will be held the next day, January 9th, probably also 7pm EST. It will be on the unofficial iNat Discord server and everyone is invited :)
What do I need beforehand?
Nothing except an iNat account and knowing how to use a mouse and keyboard
What is covered? (At minimum)
Adding IDs to observations that have none, using the web interface
Basic DQA and troubleshooting
Common mistakes and knowledge gaps
What is NOT covered? (Not in this workshop at least)
Use of the apps
Advice on posting observations
Advanced URL filters
Any ID advice for stuff more narrow than Order
Using a dichotomous key
How does it work?
Each workshop should be between 30 and 60 minutes, and will include a lesson, a few examples, and an opportunity for learners to practice a little under supervision.
My screen will be visible and my audio on. You don’t have to show anything or speak a word (though questions are welcome).
There will also be a Moderately Advanced Unknowns and Life workshop. You can attend both. Or neither.
