The organisation of INOTLES Wiki is very important as it allows users to find easier specific information, to keep users from overwriting each other's pages, and to use the Wiki for multiple purposes. The basic method of organizing INOTLES wiki is through the use of Namespaces.

Namespaces

Pages on the INOTLES wiki are grouped into collections called "namespaces", which differentiate between the purpose of the pages at a high level. Pages in certain namespaces can also have special properties or behave differently when they interact with other pages.

Namespaces are indicated in page titles by prefixing the page name with "namespace:", so the prefix "Help:" in this page's title ("Help:Namespaces") indicates that this page is in the Help namespace. Please note that namespace prefixes always end with a colon.

Organization Policies

Each namespace on the INOTLES Wiki serves a different purpose and may have slightly different policies:

Main Space

The Main Space namespace is a shared community space. Articles in this section should have an encyclopedic style, targeting a broad audience, and reflect the innovation of teaching and learning of European Studies.

Teaching Methods

The Teaching Methods represents a community area for sharing the knowledge and experience regarding the use of various pedagogies in European Studies courses.

Teaching Tools

The Teaching Tools Namespace represents a community area for sharing the knowledge and experience regarding the use of various teaching tools in European Studies courses. The space welcomes contributions on innovative teaching tools, such as educational softwares and hardwares (e.g. interactive whiteboard), e-learning (virtual learning environments), social networks, etc. We encourage sharing of experience with the use of various tools (top tips, prerequisites and integration into course design and implementation).

Course space

You may create course specific pages, share your course syllabus, elaborate on detailed course design and implementation or use this Wiki for collaborative course work with your students for taking course notes, collaborative knowledge building, or assignments.
