Hi All:

Thanks for joining us as we build this wiki resource to follow up on the Arts Education Summit 2009.

Here are a few brief tips for using this site...

  • Please note that on the right you'll find links to individual pages set up for each Summit session. There is one for each general and breakout session. Please post resources and information comments related to specific sessions on the corresponding page. Each page also has a discussion board for ongoing conversation.
  • For each page, the two most important buttons ("Discussion" and "Edit") are near the top of the page, just below the "Puddles" logo. These are the main tabs that allow you to make changes to the page.
  • To add resources or content to each page, click the "Edit" tab. Once you do so, you can then type in whatever you like, upload any file you like, link to outside websites, and more. A small "Editor" bar will pop up once you're in the "Edit" tab. This bar lets you format your text, create links, upload and post files from your computer, and much more. Once you add your content, click "Save" to make it official. Don't worry, you can always go back and change it again. if something's not quite right.
  • To add a Word doc, image, pdf, or other file, click the little picture button on the "Editor" bar. Then click the "Upload Files" tab first to browse on your computer and bring your file into the system. Then you can click the "Insert Files" tab and double click on your file to insert it in the page.
  • To add to the discussion board, click the "Discussion" tab. Then it works much like an email... type in a subject heading and your message, and click "post."
  • Also, by clicking on the "Help" link at the very bottom left of each page, you can learn most anything you need about adding files and other content.
  • Once you work with this resource a few times, you'll find yourself rapidly gaining confidence. Let's make the most out of it and enjoy!
