Once you’re in the Wiki you should see some guidance about how to use the Wiki, the first page of the Wiki and a selection of tabs to edit/navigate the Wiki.

The tabs:

View – to see the current page you’re working on (out of edit mode). 
Edit – to edit the page you are currently in and add tags
Comments – to add a comment about the page you are currently in
History – to view the editing history of the Wiki
Map – to navigate within the Wiki e.g. between pages
Files – to view files relevant to the Wiki that have been added by your tutor

The first Wiki page will always be created for you by the tutor.  You have editing access to every page in the Wiki; you can edit other people’s work and add your own.

Editing a page

  1. Navigate to the page you wish to edit by using the Map tab then choosing the relevant page from the "Page List"
