Health and Science Academy - General Biology

Page history last edited by Derek Weber 9 years, 5 months ago

Welcome to the Academy-General Biology Wiki Page:

Learning is most effectively done as part of a community. A wiki page is a collaborative tool that allows users to act as both authors and editors. These pages are viewable to the world or just a small group (like a General Biology course section). By sharing information, our goal is to improve the learning environment for everyone, including myself. Please access the help section at the bottom of the page for useful tips and suggestions on using this space.



Click on the link for the course syllabus. If you are interested in printing off a hard copy, select the printable version link on the bottom right hand corner of the page.

Help Section

  • This video reviews the process of constructing the chapter wikis for the course.
  • This video demonstrates how to insert an image using tables.
  • PBWorks sends email when the space is updated. This video shows how to change the frequency of those emails. I suggest selecting the once a day option so you are aware of any changes the instructor or fellow classmate may make to the space.
  • The PBworks Manual and 30-second training videos can help show you how to edit, add videos and invite users.
  • The best way to get your support questions answered is to click the help link at the top of this page. Our support gurus will get back to you asap. 
  • Here are two guides I created to help you navigate the process of creating pages and recording lab presentations: Instructions on using Screencast.pdf and  How to use wikis in lab.pdf
