Welcome to this Community of Practice Tutorial.  This tutorial will take you step-by-step through the fundamentals of using a Wiki on a Community of Practice.   Let's Begin!

  1. Login to your Community of Practice (See "How to Login to a Community of Practice"). 
  2. Click on the "Wiki" tab in the toolbar

  3. To create a new wiki, click on the "Create a new Wiki Page" button in the upper-right corner of the screen.  To contribute to an existing wiki, click on the wiki's name and click "Edit" in the upper-right corner of the screen. 

  4. You should now see the wiki editing screen. 

    • Read what's already been written, and Edit the document by typing directly into the document on the screen.  You can use the font, alignment, insert, and undo/redo buttons to change formatting and insert pictures, links, and files into your wiki document.
    • If this is a new wiki, type a Title in the "Title" box.  This will also be the wiki's web address. 
    • Type a Description in the "Description" box
    • Type Keywords in the "Keywords" box.  Keywords are simply one-word terms that describe what will be in this wiki.  If you need to use a two-word phrase, be sure to put it in quotes ("...") so the words link together.
    • Click on the appropriate Tags in the "Tags" box on the right.  Tags are similar to keywords, in that they describe what kind of content will be in this wiki.  However, tags are more powerful than keywords and help to identify your wiki by category or by topic in the website's "Popular Topics" widget, so they are very important to add. 
      • Note:  If you need to tag your blog with a tag name that is not currently there, please contact Maher & Maher with the requested new tag name.
  5. When you're done editing, click the "Publish" button.
  6. To view a wiki's comments, click the "User Comments" button on the main wiki screen.  All of the wiki's comments from other users will appear, as well as a box to add your own comment.
