Here at Northwestern U. we are looking to provide zwiki within our course management system, Blackboard. We currently provide other Plone-based services there, including a blog and other content management projects.

Documentation Ideas

Making a simple "how-to" document for Northwestern Zwiki users would likely require the following sections:

  • Basic text conventions (e.g., bold, italics, and _underlined_)
  • Paragraphs and headings
  • Lists
  • Links and images (including how to make a new page)
  • Preformatted text
  • Tables

Basic Text Conventions

Bold text

Bold text can be created by enclosing the text in double asterisks, like this.

Italicized text

To italicize a word or phrase, enclose it in double asterisks, like this.
