(For this page I have adapted ideas from the NMC wiki -funny eh, I think I am trying something really innovative only to discover it has been done before.)


Tips for Wiki Site Users

This wiki is the working area for 2015 edbooknz project. The project is run as an open process and this web site is viewable by the general public. However, only the current members have access to edit the wiki content. Below is some information on wiki editing specific to the 2015 group..

If you are not a member of the 2015 group, you are welcome to visit this site and engage in any discussion by entering your comments on the discussion tab of any wiki page. We also invite you to share relevant web sites, reports, and examples by tweeting them, using #edbooknz,

Logging in to the wiki (2015 Team)

You will receive an email with a link to access the wiki site. If you have not received the email, please contact me by tweeting me Sonya @vanschaijik. When you follow the link in the email, you are able to select a password and complete a profile.

Completing Your Profile

So the 2015 #edbooknz team can get to know each other, I ask that you provide some information in your wiki profile. You can find this my clicking on your name or picture in the upper right to see your profile, which contains your personal settings page. Look there for a link to Edit Your Profile. This is a great place to practice wiki editing: just type in the content you want to have on your page, and use the editing tool bar to add styles, links, and images. For an example see:

Working In the Wiki

Your tasks include adding to the content of the wiki pages on this site. For any page you are working on, look for the big green Edit This Page button to launch the wiki editor, and click it to enter editing mode. Then you can edit the page almost as you would a word processing document, using the tools on the toolbar. You can find a comprehensive guide to editing at http://help.wikispaces.com/Help.Editing+A+Page

Here are a few key hints pertaining to working on this project.
  • If you just list a URL in the text you are writing, it is automatically converted to a link. I encourage you to provide many links and to write the full URL.
  • Use the Preview button in the editor if you want to review your work before publishing it, but be sure to Save when you are done.
  • This wiki has easy to use tools for adding images, and you can even embed video clips. To add a video, click the widget icon (it looks like a little TV set), then click Video on the left, and follow the instructions for the appropriate kind of video source. This can embed a relevant video right into the discussion in the wiki.
  • I ask that when you add some new content to the wiki pages, you annotate what you've added with a "signature" for your contribution. If you type in 4 tilde symbols (~) in a row, this is a special code that will create an automatic timestamp signature that looks like - ulimasao ulimasao May 16, 2015
