Adding a Wiki Article

When you add an article to the wiki, be aware of what level you are currently viewing, to make sure that you add your new article to the correct level in the course wiki.

To move down a level in the wiki, select See all children; to move up, select the appropriate level in the wiki breadcrumb trail links at the top of the page.

To Add Articles at the Same Level

  1. In your course, select the Wiki tab at the top of the page.
  2. Navigate to the level where you want to add a new article.
  3. Select the Add Article button near the top right of the page.
  4. On the new article page, add a title for the page, and optionally a few keywords to create a “slug” that provides a more specific location identifier for your article.
  5. Add contents to the article. You can enter plain text and use Markdown syntax to add formatting. For help with Markdown syntax, select the link to the cheat sheet at the upper right corner of the Contents field.
  6. When you have finished entering content for your wiki article, select Create Article.
