UTT Blackboard Support site offers resources to help you build and maintain online course components. If you have questions that are not answered in these pages, please call Ms. Imka Seecharan @ 636-4125 ext. 3401 or tt.ude.ttu|narahcees.akmi#tt.ude.ttu|narahcees.akmi.

If this is your first site

Then there are some things you need to know:

  • You can configure all security and other settings online, using the Site Manager. When you invite other people to help build this site they don't have access to the Site Manager unless you make them administrators like yourself. Check out the Permissions section.
  • Your Wikidot site has two menus, one at the side called 'nav:side', and one at the top called 'nav:top'. These are Wikidot pages, and you can edit them like any page.
  • To edit a page, go to the page and click the Edit button. You can change everything in the main area of your page. The Wikidot language is easy to learn but powerful.
  • You can attach images and other files to any page, then display them and link to them in the page.
  • Every Wikidot page has a history of edits, and you can undo anything. So feel secure, and experiment.
  • You can choose different themes in the Site Manager, and you can write your own theme if you know CSS.
  • To start a forum on your site, see the Site Manager » Forum.
  • The license for this Wikidot site has been set to Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License. If you want to change this, use the Site Manager.
  • If you want to learn more, make sure you visit the Documentation section at www.wikidot.com

If you've already created other sites

Then we don't need to tell you how addictive Wikidot is. But maybe it's worth reminding you of some of the advanced Wikidot features:

  • You can run your Wikidot site on its own web domain name.
  • You can use Google Analytics to measure traffic going to your site.
  • Giving away free wikis is not enough for us — we are also offering you a way to earn money from your wiki using our AdSense implementation.

We hope you enjoy using Wikidot as much as we do. If you want to discuss Wikidot, there's an active community of Wikidot enthusiasts where you can share tips and ideas.
