A wiki is a collaborative website and authoring tool that allows users to easily add, remove and edit content.

Probably the best known is Wikipedia.

Our staff wiki: http://tarletonlibraries.pbwiki.com

Student worker training wiki: http://dslstudentworkers.pbwiki.com

Wiki I created for Children’s Lit: http://rdg301library.pbwiki.com/

Wiki for my long-distance book club (the rest of the members are in Seattle): http://mnobookclub.pbwiki.com/

slide4

Open up your Tarleton e-mail. You should have an e-mail from Amanda that says:

Hello; I've just given you writer [or editor] access to collaborate on our wiki. A wiki is a powerful tool for multiple people to edit documents, work together, and coordinate projects. Our wiki, securely hosted on PBwiki, is called tarletonsandbox.

Please click here to join tarletonsandbox.

Thank you.

PS: You can manage your wikis at my.pbwiki.com.

Click on the “Click here” link in your e-mail and you’ll get:

slide5

If you already have a Pbwiki account, just enter your user name and password.

If you don’t… See where it says “No account?Sign up!”? Click the link on “Sign up!”

slide6

Create your Pbwiki account:

Name: first name is fine

E-mail: use your Tarleton address

Password: Something you’ll remember – you don’t have to change it every 120 days!

Then click the “Create Account” button

slide8

We’re going to practice this in the Tarleton Sandbox. We can’t all edit the Training Log at the same time because of Pbwiki’s Edit Lock feature, which prevents more than one person from editing a wiki page at the same time.

From your My PbwikiHome page tab, under My Wikis, click on tarletonsandbox.pbwiki.com:

slide10

Then click on the “EDIT” tab:

…and the page will look like this, with Word-like editing tools at the top, just below the name of your page:

slide11

You can use the blank table provided to add a new training event. Just change “Date and Event” to the actual date and name of the training, and enter your name in one of the boxes below it.

You can create another blank table easily by copying the “Date and Event” line and the table below it, and then pasting that just below “Training Log practice:”

On the real Training Log, if for some reason there is no blank table, just type the date and name of the event and your name just below “June 2008 – May 2009” and one of the editors will fix it later.

You can add your name to an existing training event by clicking in one of the blank squares in the table and typing your name.

Be sure to click the “Save” button when you are done!

slide13

1) Click on the “EDIT” tab at the top of the page.

  • 2) Click "Images and files" under “Insert Links” on the right panel of the screen.

3) To put your picture or file on the page, use the scroll bar to find it in the list, if it has already been uploaded (you might have to scroll all the way down and click on the "Show all [#] files" link).  If you just uploaded it, it will be at the top (and you will have needed to save your edits first before you can put it on the page).

slide14

4) To put your picture or file on the page, use the scroll bar to find it in the list, if it has already been uploaded (you might have to scroll all the way down and click on the "Show all [#] files" link).  If you just uploaded it, it will be at the top (and you will have needed to save your edits first before you can put it on the page).

5) Click on “EDIT” again, and on “Images and files” again. Make sure the flashing cursor is where you want the picture or file to go on the page, then click once on the picture or on the file name under “Images and files”.

6) Click the “Save” button at the bottom when you are done.

slide15

If you have not yet uploaded the file, click on the "Browse" button and find the file on your computer, H-drive, network drive, thumb drive, etc. 

Double-click on the file or picture and it will automatically be uploaded to the wiki (but not yet to your page). Click the “Save” button at the bottom of your wiki page when you are done.
