Welcome to the Wikispaces Module!


Necessary Editing Skills

Wikispaces is WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) web editing. That makes it simple to create online content for students. It's also simple enough that the tool doesn't get in the way when students begin to collaborate on their own pages.

The formatting tools allow you to change the style of the text on your page. It is best to keep the font and color consistent from page to page, so I wouldn't suggest you customize too much. Dividing your page content apart with bold headers, bullet points, numbered lists, and dividing lines can help the end user make sense on the content. It'll make it look nice, too!
  • Formatting Tools and Adding Text (style, lists)

You can include a variety of content on your Wikispaces site. For much of the content, it will be uploaded to the Wikispaces site for you to include in your pages. Here are examples of content that would be uploaded: images, animations, videos, PDF files, maps, diagrams...

Link and File Buttons:

Using the File button embeds items in the same page, whereas the Link button takes the user to another page/site.

These video tutorials will help you understand the difference (pros and cons) to embedding versus linking to files on your Wikispaces site, and will show you both tools.
