Wayne Mackintosh the founder of Wikieducator invites teachers and educators to join the WikiEducator community by creating an account. Our community is working together in developing free content for eLearning. You are encouraged to copy, distribute and use these tutorials in helping your friends and colleagues join us in creating free content for education.

Creating an account is the first step to becoming part of the WikiEducator community
The process of creating an account on WikiEducator is very similar to registering for an account on one of the free email services like Yahoo Mail or Gmail.

It's pretty easy to create an account, and you won't need much to get started. You will need:

  • about 5 to 10 minutes to complete this tutorial
  • access to a computer with an Internet connection and web browser software (Firefox, Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Safari, Netscape, etc.)
