  2. Read what other people have written.
  3. Navigate around the dashboard site.

  • Type your name, change the font, size, and color by clicking on the "A" symbol in the menu above.
  • Insert a link to a favorite website below by giving it a name, clicking on the first "World" icon, and paste the link into the bottom option that says "External Link." Click OK.
  • Go to Youtube and find a favorite video. Copy the "embed" code on that page. Click on the TV icon above, choose video, then "YouTube" and paste the embed code into the white box and click save.
  • Create a document in word or know where you can browse for a document you've created. Click on the "image" icon above, look for the section that says "Browse." Find your file, and click "Upload." Your document will load into the viewer, and you will have to double click it to insert it into the Wiki. Before you double click it, make sure your cursor is in the place you want to insert the document.
  • To insert an image click on the "image" icon above, look for the section that says "Browse." Find your image, and click "Upload." (Your image will be coming from a file on your computer. If you are using a web image, it will be easier to work with if you've saved it first.) Your image will load into the viewer, and you will have to double click it to insert it into the Wiki. Before you double click it, make sure your cursor is in the place you want to insert the image.
