Welcome, TWikiGuest!

Welcome to the meNet platform! This is a meeting place to work on common interests. Any registered user can contribute using any web browser. The meNet platform looks like a normal web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing of pages, questions, answers, comments and updates.

The meNet platform is based on the TWiki software, a software similar to the one driving the well known Wikipedia web site. Fundamentally it consits of editable web pages. It is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with the other project members over the web.

What's in the meNet platform?

Webs: The meNet platform is divided into webs, each one represents an area for collaboration. This site has the following webs:

  • ComeniusProjects
  • LearningOutcomes
  • Learning_Teaching (this Web is subdivided further)

Topics: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics (web pages) that appear in your browser.

Some things to do

  • Browse. This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
  • Write. Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a topic (provided that you have the necessary permissions). Use the WYSIWYG editor - or if you are an advanced user the Edit command.
  • Experiment. Edit your personal page or visit the Sandbox web.

Some basics

Editing a page:

  • click [ WYSIWYG ] at the bottom (or top) of any topic and make your changes
  • click [ Preview Changes ] at the bottom to verify the topic (use your brower's Back button if necessary)
  • click the save symbol You've now edited the topic!

Creating links

There is an easy way of linking topics in the platform: Use WikiWords! WikiWords are words starting with a capital letter and having another capital letter within the word (like WikiWord). All WikiWords are automatically interpreted as links.

Creating a page

See a question mark link "?" behind a WikiWord? That means that there's no topic yet for that WikiWord. If you want to create a topic for that WikiWord, just click on the question mark. The topic will be created and you will be in the editor window. (To change to the WYSIWYG editor click save and the click WYSIWYG.)
