Guidelines and Tips
Here are some guidelines for using the wikis:
Here's a link with detailed instructions for using the wiki editor: http://community.learningobjects.com/Groups/Documentation/Campus_Pack_4.4_User_Guide/Text_Editor and for general information: http://community.learningobjects.com/Groups/Documentation/Campus_Pack_4.4_User_Guide . You can access this link from your group's wiki by clicking
on the "Help" link in the upper right-hand corner of the wiki content frame. See
also, the tutorials for working in a wiki in the "Wiki Help" folder
on the "Group Areas" page of the class MyGateway site.
- The first page
you come to when you open your wiki should be labeled Group "#" home page." Don't use
this page for a personal page or anything other than the wiki's "home."
- Do not edit any other student's page without discussing
such edits in advance. Wikis are collaborative tools, use them to
collaborate, not dominate. Pay attention to "where" you are when
you do your editing.

the wiki to display your ideas and your research work--write your essays as

page" to provide access to sub-pages for the various parts of the project
as well as to group member personal pages and a communication page. Use the
sub-pages for the parts to provide links to the various elements and individual
essays for each part.
and use a "Group Communication Page" to document discussions you
have and the work/additions/edits you do in the wiki. Preface each entry on
this page with your name and the date/time.
To Create (or edit) a page:
- From any page in the wiki, click on "Add New Page" (or
"Edit" if you have already created it and are returning to edit).
- Give your page
a name. Format: Your last name, Your first name: short page title.
- You'll see a
variety of "tools" to help you edit your page--you can choose different
fonts, and font sizes, format your text, and add tables. You can also add
images and links to other web pages (internal to this wiki, as well as to
outside web pages). Click the Image or Link buttons, and follow the simple
- If you know html, you'll find a button that allows you to
edit the source code.
- Be sure to click the "Save" button when you are
- You'll be evaluated for content, style, and presentation.
- One member is responsible for editing the 'home' page (first
page you access when you enter the wiki), and to go through and link all of
the other pages together.
