Wiki Training

The training started on Tuesday, 25th of June, at 8.30am EAT at the KINU Innovation Space. The participants had previously little or no in-depth knowledge on the use of wikis for social interaction. The presenter provided the participants with hands-on training on how to create a wiki account, how to edit, save and format the content, and how to interact with another Wiki user. Participants also learned something rather interesting - how to manipulate another Wiki user's text, and how that Wiki user could restore the changes that another user had make to his/her content!

Participants' Reaction

Everyone found the tutorials and videos really exciting and useful, but a few of them found it difficult to keep up with the presenter. This is understandable when you are learning how to use a program or feature for the first time! All in all, we are really very grateful to the trainers for organizing this splendid workshop, as after the training, we will definitely apply our newly acquired skills in our workplaces or daily activities. KINU keep up the good work in helping participants be much more efficient and productive!
