The next UBC Wiki Support session will be on Thursday, September 16th, from 1pm to 3pm at the Fraser River Room in the CTLT Tag offices in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. The drop-in UBC Wiki Support sessions are informal sessions where users can drop by and meet face to face to ask for information, help, or suggestions on how to use the UBC Wiki.
Have questions on wiki mark-up, organizing your content, embedding media, or any other topic? I’ll be offering drop-in support sessions for the UBC Wiki. In my mind, these will be sessions where I am able to give one on-one help or answer specific questions regarding the UBC Wiki.
The next session will be on Thursday, August 26th, from 1 to 3pm at the Fraser River Room in the CTLT Tag offices in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
I decided that a good first place to start with the wiki gardening project was to review the help documentation. I first looked at what currently existed on the wiki and then I moved some articles over from the public domain user guide of the MediaWiki to fill in what I thought might be missing.
In order to make the help documentation more visible, I created a help category for all pages that provide information for helping users add, edit, or create content on the UBC Wiki. In doing so, I got to see my first glimpses of why weeding will be part of this project.
In general, I think some specific help tutorials need to be created for the specialized needs of the UBC Wiki (such as how do I organized my course content).
