Resource lifecycle


Content Creation

When developing the initial content, it is worth considering what the resource's future content needs may be (e.g., addition of new content, updates).

Preservation and Upkeep

Review and Evaluation

In a dynamic ever-changing environment, it is important to regularly examine whether the resources are providing value to and are meeting the emerging needs of the teaching and learning community. This would allow you to optimize the utility and impact of the resource or to make decisions around decommissioning/archiving the resource.


In UBC Wiki, you can check pageviews of the wiki resources you or/and others have created. Adding statistics can be very useful when you reflect and evaluate the resources you have created on Wiki. Take a look at Help:Adding statistics to your page to learn how to add statistics to your wiki page.

Managing your resources


Add pages to your watchlist by clicking on the star at the top of the wiki

A watchlist curates a set of pages that you have selected to monitor for editorial changes. You can add pages to your watchlist by clicking the star at the top of each page. You can easily access this watchlist by selecting "Watchlist" located in the administrator bar at the very top of the screen.


You can configure your preferences to have the UBC Wiki email you every time a page on your watchlist is changed. You can do so by accessing "Preferences" located in the administrator bar at the very top of the screen. Scroll down to the "Email options" to select "Email me when a page or file on my watchlist is changed".
