Do’s

  • Use the “Help” button

  • Identify yourself

  • Make the Wiki user friendly

  • Start small, start with 1 assignment or just a few pages

  • Have a Plan

  • Make sure each student can find the wiki and navigate through it.

  • Make a separate page for each subject, topic or project

    • Give each page a slightly different look

  • The navigation is the key. Keep it maintained.

  • Only have relevant pages visible. (Pages can be hidden until you are ready to use them.)

  • When you add a link to an external site; do have it open in a new window.


Don’ts

  • Post student information as names, grades etc.

  • Make your Wiki to “busy”. More is not always better.

  • If you post a photo of a student you must have a signed press release.

  • Have non-working links
