You should have received an email with the confirmation of your registration for the ST wiki. The email tells you your user name (usually your first and last name concatenated) and your password.
Note that the password you were emailed is also used for several other services that
you have been registered for (subversion, jira).
The wiki account lets you edit pages of the ST Wiki
and gives you access to the IntraWiki
. The latter site can only be viewed with your wiki account.
- Try viewing the IntraWiki main page; type your wikiname and password in the dialog
At the IntraWiki you have your own personal web.
- Find your IntraWiki web in the list of StudentWebHomes and open your WebHome in a new window.
Your personal web should be used to maintain your studyplan, assignments you make for courses, etc. The web is viewable only to yourself and the ST staff. Make sure that your fellow students cannot access the pages (ask your neighbour now). This is important since you will be placing your reviews on your personal web and those should not be readable to other students.
In the rest of this assignment you learn the general concepts of Wikis and the features
of the TWiki instance we are using. At the end you should fill your personal web with
a required set of pages.
Read the 'One-Page Primers' referred to at the TWiki.WebHome
page and make sure to
learn all there is to know about TWiki. While reading you can experiment with editing, markup, etc. in your personal web.
- From your WebHome link to the page WikiSandbox (in your own web)
- Make BookMarks page with links to courses you are going to take
Decorate your own Web
