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 would like add a name for who or what project created the resource, add that info after the names parameters. If left blank, it will default to Course:FRST270. If you would like your resource to be reused, add a yes to the share parameter. This will add a Creative Commons license to the resource. If left black or no, no statement about licensing will be added to the project box.

Example

When you typed the following parameter:

  • names=Will
  • share your work?=yes

It will look like this:

When you typed the following parameter:
