  3. Title your wiki page using the section number and term selected from the table of contents below.
  4. Proper entry for ONE term should include:
  • A definition directly quoted from a source and properly cited using the APA style.
  • A definition in your own words that draws from the quoted definition, giving an example related to your major.
  • If you consider it necessary: ONE multimedia object (video, podcast, song, game, animation, cartoon, demonstration, etc) that expands your definition or illustrates your example. It should explain the concept(s) visually or with an analogy, or a funny story, etc. Cite properly the source using the APA style.

Task 3: Edit the content an existing wiki page.

  1. Add an alternative/equivalent definition or additional example to at least THREE of your colleagues' definitions.
  2. Cite properly using the APA style, explain why you chose that definition, and include your name in parenthesis and bold letters at the end of your addition. For example, if I add something to a page I will write at the end of my addition" [mcuellar].

Task 4: Edit an existing wiki page.
  1. Add a properly cited and additional multimedia object to at least THREE of your classmates' definitions. The object must be different from the one you are adding a contribution; for example: if the entry already has a video, don't include a video.
