From UBC Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Congratulations on your new position as a Digital Tattoo Project Coordinator/Contributor! There will be some things you will want to do in your first week with us that will help orient you to the work ahead. Read on...


  • You will need an account on the UBC wiki (just login with your CWL and create a user profile).
  • You'll need to be added to the Digital Tattoo site as administrator. You will send the email (associated with your CWL) to and ask her to add you.
  • Slack: this is an optional communication tool - we have a project team set up - just need to add you. You'll need to email Ian Linkletter about this and ask him for access to Slack and the digital tattoo project team. If you have a UBC email address, you can add yourself via:
  • Confluence: our project management tool (mainly a file repository). Message Rie to receive access and instructions about logging in.
  • Google: You do not need a google account ( and are not required to have one), but make sure to request access to the student share files via or another DT student member.


  • All pw for our social media accounts etc. are on Confluence. Login and get oriented as soon as you get an account.


  • We will work out a time for you to go up to the Learning Commons work space in the Library level 3 and get oriented to the workstation there. You will mainly be using the Mac for times when you need to work on the video editing software or save/transfer files to the hard drive. Some hours in the space will be required.
