    • Templates - what are they?

  6. Now the fun part - its a wiki, no mistake is unfixable.
    • Create a "red link" so we can create a page
    • Fill our the page with your info (whats the difference between "Save page" and "Show preview")
      • One way to do this is - Cut and paste into the new page a basic page layout (for the rpg its a template)
    • Have every one check out history, why comments are a good thing?
  7. Have the students edit an existing page. (the cook book project)
    • Look through the pages that have been created to find one that isn't in the proper format
    • Adjust the page to make it more like the others.
