You can't hurt anything here, so click on the Edit Tab above and type away.  Click BC UDL Project Wiki at the top to return to the main page or use the back arrow.






Here are some things to try:


Type text on this page in different colours and fonts.



Navigating and Sharing on a Wiki (demos and instructions)


To create a new page:

Click on the "Create a Page" button in the top right-hand corner when you are in View Mode.  There are a number of formats to choose from, but generally you'll choose blank page.  Try creating your own page and linking it to this one (called practice-page in the list).




To link to a website or another page in the wiki:

In Edit Mode, select the text where you want the link to appear and click on the links tool (looks like a little globe with a chain).  A little box will open up for you to choose the type of link (another wiki page, url, email) and then either choose the page to link to or type/paste in the url or email.


To upload a file or a picture:

Click on "Upload files" in the top right-hand corner when you are in View Mode.  Then click the upload button and find the file or picture on your desktop.  You have the option of creating folders on the wiki for storing your uploaded documents and pictures. or use the two I've created.  




To add a picture directly to your page:

In Edit Mode, click the Images and Files tab in the Right-Hand panel.  Choose a picture that has already been uploaded or browse to a file on your computer and click upload.  Click on the file name to insert it.  Drag to resize.


To add a downloadable resource directly to your page:

In Edit Mode, click the Images and Files tab in the Right-Hand panel.  On the page you are editing, select the text you want to link the file to.  Then click the file name in the Right-Hand panel.  If it hasn't been uploaded yet, click the Upload button. 


To embed a video, Voice Thread, or photo that is already online:

Use the Insert Plugin Tool in the toolbar.  You can usually just copy the code from YouTube, Voice Thread, Flicker, or Picasa and paste it right on the wiki in Edit Mode.  When you return to View Mode, you'll see the visual.


 To manage your files online:

Click on "Pages and Files" in the upper right-hand corner.  You'll be able to move your files and folders.  Only admin can delete files, so ask your team leader to delete files or promote you to admin.
