How to Do the Wiki

Some of you might know how to do this already; but for others this might be helpful.

1. Sign in using our group email and password—found at the bottom of page one on the syllabus.
2. Click on the page that you are assigned (i.e. "verbal delivery" if that is the page you intend to edit.) Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the light grey 'edit' tab. This will open up an editor where you can make changes.
3. When you're finished with the changes, scroll to the bottom of the page and click 'save'. Your page should then pop up with all the additions you've made.

Voila, you're done. Ok, but what should you do? Here's the thing—it really is open. Basically, I want you to add something useful to the resources we have here already. Here are some ideas:

1. Add in material from the handouts I gave you in class or tips you find on the internet. This is the most important thing—ideally, this could be a resource for anyone wanting to learn more about public speaking, so try to make the content A+.
2. Add in examples. These can be examples you use in your handout, in class, or something specific to the wiki. Are there some good YouTube clips that demonstrate the process you're trying to teach? Embed them!
3. Tidy up the material here. Some of this might not be well-organized. Feel free to re-organize it or start anew.
4. Share some exercises. Perhaps you've had classes in the past that have taught you something really well (i.e. how to write a thesis statement, rhetorical figures). Let us know specific activities to get better!

These are some very basic ideas; the sky's the limit here so feel free to experiment.
