Wiki Orientation Presentation

Sharing Your Work

Editing the project box

All wiki project pages have a template on them that allows you to add your name to the resource and indicate if you'd like to share your work via a Creative Commons license.

If you’d like your name added to the page as author as well allowing other people to re-use it as a conservation resource, you can:

  1. Click on the edit tab to edit your page
  2. Then scroll to the bottom and click on the green box at the bottom of the page
  3. This will generate a little pop-up with an edit button. Push the edit button.
  4. In the names field, add your name if you would like to be credited as the author
  5. In the share field, add “yes” (must be lowercase) if you would like to allow other folks to be able to reuse your page, such as by including it on the UBC open case studies site at http://cases.open.ubc.ca/. Clicking yes adds a creative commons license to the page. If left blank or no, no statement about licensing will be added to the project box.
