Site Tools


We encourage you to add to this toolkit. We have used a template to try and build some coherence across the site and we ask that you at least try using it. If your tool or method doesn't fit well, please adjust it. Here are some brief instructions if you have never created a wiki page before.

  1. Join this wikispaces wiki - look in the upper right hand corner. You will have to wait until your membership is approved. This is not to screen you out, but to make it hard for spammers to come in and disrupt the wiki.
  2. Decide on the topic for your contribution.
  3. Decide if it is a tool or a method. (reminder: tools can support interactions, including methods. Tools in this context generally refer to technology. Methods are the ways we interact, sometimes using tools, online and/or offline)
  4. Go to either the tool or method page, and look to see if the contribution you want to make already exists - or something close. If it does, add to that page rather than creating a new page.
  5. If it is not listed, type in the name in the correct alphabetical order. Then highlight the new topic and click on the link tool on the edit bar. You are going to choose “wiki link” and the tool name should be showing in the title box. Click ok. Then click Save Page. You will have amended the index and created a new page for your tool or method.
  6. Click on the new link. This will take you to a new page - choose from the drop down “Toolkit Template” and the template will load and you can start editing by filling out the fields in the template that are useful and relevant to your tool or method. Start with the title! Note there is a template in English,Espanol, and Francais!
  7. In the Tag field, choose tags from the tag cloud that apply, and any new tags you think would be useful.
  8. When you are done, click the Save Page button.
  9. If you would like to, include your name at the bottom as the original starter or contributor to the page. Feel free to make yourself a page on the wiki to share more about who you are.
