• If you have not seen it yet, I recommend that you look at the 'youtube' video clip on Wikis. In WikiEd, as in the video, the most important buttons are edit and save. A third button, Link, is not quite the same on WikiEd. To make a sub page, in edit mode, you simply give it a name. put forward slashes around it, then two square brackets in front and after the result. When you save, the word will be in red. Click on it and it will tell you there is no such page. As soon as you start editing, the sub page is created. --Phil Bartle 03:05, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
• Hi Gerard, with a little bit more work you will be on your way to becoming a skilled WikiMaster Warm wishes --Patricia 16:54, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
• It is really very exciting to learn wiki skills for teachers. Unfortunatelly the problem for teachers of some countries (mine included) is the very low and sometimes inexistant internet connection. When it works it is so slow that that becomes too expensive to pay. That is also a great handicap for many developing countries.--Rwagasana 21:26, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Rwagasana. Welcome back to WikiEducator and our upcoming eL4C42 Online workshop.Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 16:53, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
• To demonstrate collaborative writing here in your WikiEducator page, I am adding this note in a section specifically provided for collaboration. Now it is your turn to reply to my note. --Valerie Taylor 00:21, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

• Hi Gerald. Have you given it much thought as to what projects you'd like to work on or promote? You might want to include this information in the boilerplate above. Since you have already achieved WikiApprentice status (congratulations!), I encourage you to work towards being a WikiBuddy --Benjamin Stewart 12:23, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
• You are making progress on your user page, Gerald. Good for you! Have you given much thought as to what OERs you would like to work on? Or have you already contributed to some OERs in WE? If you have something in mind that you would like to work on in WE, you might consider adding a brief description of your project in your user page above. --Benjamin Stewart 23:25, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
