This particular lab will guide you through the following:

  1. Creating your Open Source @ Seneca Wiki account
  2. Creating your user page
  3. Adding your user page to the Open Source @ Seneca Wiki’s people list

Alright, let’s begin.

Launch Firefox and go to http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/wiki. This page is the Open Source @ Seneca Wiki main page. Here you will find links to many course resources and course pages. You will also find links to the most current blog posts by other members of this community.

Open Source @ Seneca Wiki Main Page

 

1. Creating your Open Source @ Seneca Wiki account

To create an account click on the “log in/create account” link located near the top right of the page.

Log in/create account Link 

Once you click on it you will be redirected to the “log in/create account” page. From here click on the “create an account” link to be redirected to the create an account page.

Login Page

Fill in all the requested information. Once you are done filling in this information, double-check that your information is correct and then click on the “create account” button to create your account.

2. Creating your user page

Click on your user name located near the top left of the page. Once you click on the link you will be redirected to your user page. Since we did not yet create your user page, you will see some text explaining that you do not have any text to show. So, lets create some text by clicking on the “edit this page” link.

User Page Empty

The page will go into “Editing User” mode.

Copy and paste in the following HTML code with your information.


Where:
a is your first and last name (i.e. John Dang)
b is your birth date (i.e February 15)
c is your profession (i.e Student, Scholar, Professor)
d is your expected graduation date (i.e. May 2009)
e is your Seneca User ID (i.e. jqdang)
f is your blog site (i.e. http://jqdang.wordpress.com/)
g is some text about you
h is some text about your goal
