Preparing for Wikis

Readings and activities for WeblogsAndWikis, S 2014

Post this week not an essay or conclusions but extracts, quotes, notes, questions for exploring further, frameworks for considering matters further.

Part I

First, a few primers to get a sense of what wikis are and how they work. (The practice at a university is to use Wikipedia to get up to speed on a topic, as you would use a general encyclopedia, but not use the material as a source unless you're writing about Wikipedia itself). Instead, use a more focused source of http://c2.com/ - Portland Pattern Repository's Wiki.

Next, some readings on wikis - that is, some wiki pages about wikis. With these you might begin to develop questions and frameworks for more consideration.

Some Wiki Spaces

Investigate these as a first time visitor - which you are. Read (not skim, read) the material on welcome pages, users's guide or style guides. You'll be able to edit some pages on some wikis, on others, not. Watch for tabs or buttons labeled Talk, Recent Changes, and Info. But the idea is to stay focused on how the wiki is designed, how to find things, some of the community conventions.

As a final focus, compare a few style guides
