Do’s• Use the “Help” button • Identify yourself• Make the Wiki user friendly• Start small, start with 1 assignment or just a few pages• Have a Plan• Make sure each student can find the wiki and navigate through it.• Make a separate page for each subject, topic or project

• Give each page a slightly different look• The navigation is the key. Keep it maintained.• Only have relevant pages visible. (Pages can be hidden until you are ready to use them.)• When you add a link to an external site; do have it open in a new window.

• Post student information as names, grades etc.• Make your Wiki to “busy”. More is not always better.• If you post a photo of a student you must have a signed press release.• Have non-working links
