Pedagogical templates are used when authoring teaching content in WikiEducator. A number of templates are predesigned to save you time with more complex layouts required of instructional materials. They include a range of "instructional devices" or subelements of a content page and are usually signified by an icon. For example:

Wiki syntax for iDevice templates

A template is called using a predefined label and the text for your iDevice separated by "|" and all enclosed between two "{{ }}" braces. For example, the following syntax will be used for a Self-assessment question:

{{Preknowledge|Think about a situation when you ....type the rest of your preknowlege text here}} .
