You can download these instructions as a PDF here.
Create an individual work zone (also called a "page" or "child" - see the "children" below) that will contain your assignments (e.g., see the Parmenter Demo below), then create sub-page for each assignment, e.g., Assignment 1 - Parmenter).
- To create your individual work zone, first click on the Student Work Zone - Intro GIS Spring 2008 page (don't do this on this page of instructions!)
- When you are in the Student Work Zone page, click on the Edit menu, then select - New - Page. Give it your last name as a Title. You may type other information in there if you like. When finished press SAVE, and it will automatically appear in the list in the Student Work Zone page.
- To add a page for an assignment, click on your individual work zone page first, then click on Edit - New - Page. Give the new assignment page a title something like "Assignment 1 - Yourname".
- There are then three ways you can add your work:
- You can start typing the assignment directly onto this page typing in the area under the Rich Text tab just as you would in a word processor. Press Save when finished. Note you can insert images and create web links as well.
- If you have already written the assignment as a word processing document or have it as a PDF, you you can upload it.
- To upload a file, first save the assignment page if you are still in editing mode - if you are not in editing mode, click on the assignment page to which you will upload it (step 2 above)
- Click on Edit - Attachments, browse for your file, and attach it.
- Click on Edit - Edit this Page again
- Click on the Wiki Markup tab
- Type in the text you see below - including the brackets: - this macro will make a link to your attachment(s) automatically appear.
- Press SAVE when finished!
- Alternatively, you can add your attachments as in the above step, but then in the Rich Text tab, you could type in text (e.g., Assignment 1) and create a link to your attachment if you like. See the instructions below for linking to an attachment.
To link to an attachment:
- First make sure you have attached a file to your Assignment page (e.g., Assignment 3) - see the instructions above
- Navigate to your Assignment page, and click on Edit - Edit this Page
- Under the Rich Text Tab,type in the text that will be the link (e.g., "Here is Assignment 1")
- Highlight the text to be linked and click on the "Insert/Edit Link" icon in the toolbar (globe with chain link on it)
- In the dialog box that appears, click on the Attachments link (at the end of the set of links starting with "Search History..."
- You should see the attachment you have added in the list that appears (if you don't you haven't added it to the correcct place)
- Next click on the attachment to which you are linking, so that its file name appears in the Link box (see graphic below)
- Press SAVE when done editing the page.
See the link properties dialog box below for how this attachment is linked - the linked attachment is a pdf called "accessing GIS networks drives from outside the GIS lab.pdf":
See the Parmenter Example below for more instructions.
You should restrict editing of your page to yourself, and you may restrict viewing of your page to the instructor and TA. E-mail them if you need to know how to do this.
