Getting Started With Wikipedia
- Step One: Sign up for an account [you may delete your account if you wish after the conclusion of the course] [Why should I start a Wikipedia account?]
- Step Two: review the “Five Pillars of Wikipedia” [basic information for writers, editors and other contributors]
- Step Three: complete the Student Tutorial on Wikipedia. It is not important to remember all of the details of the tutorial right now; instead get a sense of how editing works on Wikipedia.
- Step Four: set up your user page, talk page, and sandbox [instructor assistance given]: found in the upper right hand of the page, after you are logged into Wikipedia.
