Leasons Learned

  • Tutorials are essential for editing, and MediaWiki is a great guide to learn how to edit a wiki.
    • Tutorial has especially been useful for teaching me how to upload images, as well as WikiText help.[1]
  • Resizing an image via wiki is something I need to work on.
  • Formatting is important for readiblity and uniformity.
  • Creating tabs in the wiki was not nearly has difficult as I thought. I was using a code from the MediaWiki site, and it would not work. The actual code to create tabs was much more simple than the one MediaWiki provided.
Additional Comments

  • So far, I would say this has been a successful week of learning.
