Collaborative Editing

From WikiEducator
Jump to: navigation, search

Creating educational content on WikiEducator is quite different from what you may be used to. WikiEducator's contributors may come from many different countries and cultures and have different views, perspectives, and backgrounds, that sometimes vary widely. Treating others with respect is the key to collaborating effectively in building useful resources on WikiEducator. Remember that all resources on WikiEducator are viewable and potentially editable by anyone who creates an account. Expect your work to be edited by others and resolve any disputes or leave comments by using the Discussion pages.

Our work is based on a consensus model. In practice members of WikiEducator agree to work as follows:

  1. Draft plans, outlines and suggestions are created on the wiki. Anyone is free to create a new wiki page in relation to any content.
  2. Consensus discussions take place in the Discussion pages (i.e. the Discussion or User talk tabs that you will find above the content area of each page).
  3. Once consensus is achieved, please make the necessary changes on the relevant wiki page.
  4. Minor edits, improvements and new additions are usually done without discussion.
