Working together using this wiki

 

 

Think of this wiki as a shared online whiteboard. Your entire group can share information using this wiki, making your research accessible to everyone. Play around with this wiki: Notice how you can add comments to a page, see what people have changed, and edit all the text.  Just click "New page" to start a new page.  However, look at the rest of this page to see the type of information you need to include on your pages.  Note that you will link to your drafts on this page.

 

What follows is the type of information you will keep after you create a new page for your project using the Sampledraft6 template.

When you create a new page, give it a title: W6 Code KeyWord

Example:  W6 Shee New Mayor

The template has this information ready for you:
