Dear friends,


We were eagerly waiting for the workshop to start and here we are now! :-)

At the outset we thank all of you for showing your interest and joining us in this workshop.

This is our first day of the workshop and lets 'inaugurate it' by making an edit in WikiEducator on your User Page. Going to your user page is easy. You can do so it by visiting http://wikieducator.org/ and login from the link in upper right top corner and then from the Main Page locate for workshop details given at the end of page.

Its better you bookmark your userpage and then log in from there so you can reach your page directly.

In this workshop we will be using a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor, which is also called Rich Text Editing (RTE). (Tip: We recommend that you open the links below in a new window or new browser tab. Move your cursor (pointer) over the link, click on your right mouse button and select open link in new tab or window. This way you will keep the instructions open in one of your browser windows.)

1. If you are new to wikis, view the short video called ‘Wikis in plain English’ at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dnL00TdmLY - hosted on YouTube.

You may have noticed that we are using simple text in this page without any formatting or wiki syntax. This is so to give a feeling that even simple text can appear on Wiki. So be brave in typing the details without bothering about the syntax or format.

Wishing you a very pleasant learning and community building time!
