The Objective of this assignment is to familiarize everyone with the more detailed use of the wiki, and to engage us in a collaborative, interactive use of the wiki tool. In this exercise we will work beyond the one-way communication of a web page, and take full advantage of the wiki's ability to be constantly edited and updated by a broader group of people. The suggestions in this week's assignment should continue as regular activities throughout the semester. We must think of this wiki as our collective work, and everything on it is a reflection of the standards of our group. So feel free to make suggestions or corrections or updates anywhere on the wiki.


Here are the primary steps for this assignment:


1. Transfer your presentation onto a wiki page. We asked everyone to complete this part by Sunday evening, to allow the completion of part 2.


2. Read everyone else's wiki pages, and make some kind of update or comment on each of them. For instance, if you see a spelling or grammar or formatting error, it is okay to just go ahead and fix it (if you're sure!). If you aren't certain, but something looks like it needs attention from the page editor, leave a note in the appropriate place on the wiki.


On the page that you are preparing, please indicate at the top the name of the page editor, with a link so anyone reading it can email you directly if they wish. Use the following format--you can copy this phrase and paste it (and modify it with your own info) on your own page, to keep the same formatting:

Page Editor is Mickey Mouse. Please email me with suggestions, comments, or compliments!


When leaving a note, use this format:

[Start the comment with a square bracket--that will help differentiate the note from the content, and allow for searches based on a bracket [. Use of the bracket is a standard editing mark in the publishing world--often used by an editor making comments back to an author, for instance when asking for clarification of something the author has written. Also, use red text, and italics. Red is the usual color for "markups" and "redlines" of drawings, so we will use it in the same way here on the wiki]
