Help on getting started with Wiki editing

There are a couple of resources on WikiEducator to help you get started. You obviously have an account already and may need a little help with the basics of wiki editing.

If you're like me and only read the instructions when you have a problem :-) - there is a quick start set of guidelines which should get you going.

If you have any questions please feel free to join our discussion list on Google groups which is a good place to get help from the community, or drop me a note on my talk page below.
