Help! I'm new with wikis


Exploring basic technical aspects


Wikis are simple and easy. However, the newbie may find this is a whole new world. Let's explore it a bit.


First things first:

What is a wiki?



PBwiki homepage


Logging in

Two possibilities:



Even if you do not have a wiki, you may create a PBwiki identity here. That is, you may have a user name to automatically sign your contributions to any PBwiki you take part in without creating a wiki. It is an useful option for your students.


If you already have a PBwiki, then simply log in with your existing user name.


My.PBwiki.com is also a home page to organise a list of all the wikis you take part in. There you can decide to receive notifications of the changes in any wiki. (read more in this post from PBwiki blog)
