Creating educational content on WikiEducator is quite different from what you may be used to. WikiEducator's contributors may come from many different countries and cultures and have different views, perspectives, and backgrounds, that sometimes vary widely. Treating others with respect is the key to collaborating effectively in building useful resources on WikiEducator. Remember that all resources on WikiEducator are viewable and potentially editable by anyone who creates an account. Expect your work to be edited by others and resolve any disputes or leave comments by using the Discussion pages.
In this tutorial, we will discuss several ways to improve your collaborative editing skills. We will breakdown what is happening on the recent changes page which shows the real time changes to WikiEducator pages. Once we are familiar with the recent changes page, we will show you how the diff (version comparison) and history pages can be used to speed up the collaborative editing process. Finally, in a collaborative editing environment mistakes will happen. A simple and quick method to correct mistakes is to revert the edit. To show you how easy it is, the final activity in this tutorial will be to revert some pseudo-vandalism.
