4.5. Commenting

Commenting or giving feedback is an essential component for portfolio work. You can give feedback not only on individual artefacts but on entire portfolio pages.

Der Autor eines Artefakts oder einer Portfolioansicht entscheidet, ob Sie Kommentare hinterlassen können. Kommentaroptionen bestehen für:

Bemerkung

‚Feedback‘ and ‚comments‘ are used interchangeably. It can be argued that feedback and comments denote different qualities of responding. From Mahara 15.10 on, ‚comments‘ are used throughout instead of having a mix of ‚feedback‘ and ‚comments‘.

4.5.1. View page comments

You can see the comments left so far at the bottom of each portfolio page or the artefact page that contains the artefact’s metadata.

View comments on a page

  1. The profile picture and name of the author of the comment are shown. The name links to the author’s profile.

  2. You can see when the comment author wrote the comment and also when the last change to it was made.

  3. The comment is displayed.

  4. If comment or portfolio authors decide to remove comments, they are marked as such.

    Bemerkung

    Deleted comments retain the section ‚Comment removed by author / owner‘ if more comments come after them as they could have been referenced. Without that indicator, some conversations may not be easy to follow as context would be missing. If no additional comment comes after a deleted one, the deleted comment is removed entirely.

    If a deleted comment needs to be retrieved, it can be undeleted in the database as comments are not deleted from the database itself, but only set to be hidden.

  5. Comments can contain a rating which shows quickly how well the person commenting likes your page or artefact.

    Bemerkung

    This feature is only available if the site administrator turned it on in the extensions.

  6. As page / artefact owner you see all comments. A comment marked as private by the comment author is only displayed to you and the person commenting.

  7. You or the comment author can make a private comment public by clicking the Make public link.

  8. Comment authors can attach a file to their comment to give you longer feedback or oral or video feedback. The files that they add are placed into your personal Files area so you can use that feedback later on.

  9. Sie und der Autor eines Kommentars können den Eintrag durch Klicken auf den Löschen-Button entfernen. Wenn Sie den Kommentar einer anderen Person löschen, wird diese darüber informiert und enthält eine Kopie des gelöschten Texts.

  10. You can reply directly to a comment when this functionality was enabled for your institution.

    Bemerkung

    When you reply to a public comment then your reply can be seen by anyone with access to the page. They also receive a notification about the comment when they had previously left a comment themselves.

    When you reply to a private comment or reply privately, then only you and the comment author to whom you are replying can see your reply and are notified about it.

  11. You can edit your own comments, and comment authors can edit their comment if it is the last comment and / or the editing time of 10 minutes has not elapsed yet.

  12. If a comment is less than a day old, its time is displayed in seconds, minutes or hours.

As owner of a page or artefact, you receive a notification about new comments that have been placed on it. Others will receive notifications if they placed a comment themselves.

4.5.2. View and add artefact comments

You can see quickly, which artefacts on a page have comments, when you click the Details button and see the black bars on blocks or within blocks when blocks contain multiple artefacts.

If you only want to comment on artefacts, you can also click the artefact itself, e.g. an image in an image block, a link to a file or a journal entry. The comments and details modal is displayed for a range of artefacts without the need to go into the details mode.

    (or a variant of it).

  2. A modal is displayed that contains details for the requested artefact.

  3. You can view metadata for the artefact. In the case of images, a preview is displayed.

  4. If the artefact allows comments, you can see any that have already been made.

  5. If you are allowed, you can also leave a comment yourself. When you click the Comment button, the modal is closed.

  6. If you do not want to leave a comment, you can close the modal by clicking the Close icon . Alternatively, you can click Cancel at the bottom of the page.

Bemerkung

If you do not see ‚Comments‘ and / or ‚Add comment‘ on an artefact, then you are not allowed to leave comments (anymore). If comments have already been left, you can still view them, but you may not be able to add your own.

4.5.3. Comment on portfolios

You can comment on a page and individual artefacts if the page / artefact author allowed that.
