  • What
is
a
Wiki?

 ‐a
knowledge
management
system
accessible
from
 anywhere
with
an
Internet
connec@on
 ‐an
easily
scalable
place
to
host
informa@on
and
share
it
 with
anyone
or
just
a
select
group
 ‐a
community‐driven
site
that
encourages
sharing,
 discussion,
and
collabora@on
 ‐informa@on
on
a
wiki
does
not
belong
to
anyone,
but
 rather
everyone.
All
are
responsible
for
the
content
and
 for
revising
it
and
ensuring
its
accuracy.

  • The
Wiki
and
Local
Training
Partners


 -The Wiki will be used to compile and share all of our training network’s resources. -It’s a dynamic place to host information – the info is updated as things change. As more and more people add resources to our database, the better resource we become and the stronger our training network is. -As ideas shift and knowledge grows, so does the content of the Wiki. The Wiki can provide information on new incentives, new education programs, etc. Anyone can add more info to keep the info as current as possible.
  • Who
will
use
the
Wiki?

 -Every Local Training Partner will have access to the wiki and can grant access to their staff. -The MREA will give access to any instructors who come to the training institute. -The MREA also has its instructors on the wiki working on teaching modules and curriculum development. -The information is organized so that certain sections can be restricted amongst MREA instructors or LTPs if necessary.

  • Technical
Knowledge
 -There is an initial learning curve: wikitext. Wikitext takes some time to learn but the payoff is great. -Wikitext is similar to HTML. There is a plain text editor and a rich text editor. -It’s helpful to learn both. We’ll review the main things to know here, then you can spend some time on the wiki and in the help section learning more.
