UBC Wiki is composed with wikitext (or wiki markup). Wikitext is like a simplified version of HTML. You can choose to edit your text with Visual Editor or using the traditional wikitext editor.

Visual Editor is an "visual" or "WYSIWYG-like" online rich-text editor, which allows you to edit wiki article in a more intuitive way - just like in Microsoft Word. If you have basic knowledge about wikitext, and you want to have more control in how you want to format text or do something more advanced(such embedding a video,etc.) you can choose to edit in wikitext editor.

You can always switch back and forth Visual Editor and wikitext anytime.Take a look at the documentation below to learn how to format in UBC Wiki:
