[how to use this wiki]




navigating around e e learning



there are numerous ways to navigate around eelearning. here are descriptions of the menus available to you.


the wiki navigation menu 


at the top of every page, you will find this menu. the buttons are:


the eelearning navigation menu 


stuck between the eelearning nameplate and the sidebar you will find the eelearning navigation menu. this will help you navigate within and between the various sections of eelearning. (there is only one active section at the moment.) the buttons may change from page to page, but they will be a subset of the following:



the sidebars 


on the righthand side of each page you will find a sidebar with three tabs at the top. the content of the sidebar is the same wiki-wide.



the footer 


at the bottom of each page you will find some green boxes with various links and functions available. some of the key ones of note include:





as soon as i can put them together and post them, you'll find tutorials on how to:




e e learning style


while most wikis have similar mark-up conventions (i.e, how to bold or italicize text, create a table, etc.) each does have its peculiarites. if you try something and it doesn't render the way you thought it would, check the wiki styles page on pbwiki's home site.


wiki style, html, and other mark-up. 


the preferred method of encoding in pbwiki is the pbwiki style. this is a modified, simplified language compared to html. the editing page handles the most common formatting issues for you with buttons at the top of the editing window. one of the nice things about pbwiki is that it allows you to use html intermingled with the wiki style. so if you know html, you are welcome to use it. but please keep it simple so that others will understand what you have encoded and can freely edit if necessary in their revisions. pbwiki does accept javascript, but i ask that you please contact me (dcleesfo at gmail dot com) before adding it to any of the pages here.


lower case letters 


e e learning uses a style that calls for no capitalization - of anything. if you see a capitalized letter, it's either a typo on my part or a system control that i haven't figured out how to change yet. go ahead and give it a try. it ain't as easy as you might think.




in e e learning, all hyperlinks are red until you cursor over them and then they invert to white type on a red background. this differs from the standard pbwiki style of underlining hyperlinks (which you might see occasionally because I haven't gotten to re-coding those links yet). you can assume that if it's red (underlined or not), it's a hyperlink.


while wikis tend to follow similar rules and styles, no two are exactly alike. if you find that something you are trying to do doesn't work check the wiki styles or dropping me a note via the haloscan tool at the top of this page.
