Editing Wikipedia

This guide is intended to assist students and faculty editing articles in Wikipedia for course assignments.


Your sandbox is a place where you can experiment editing using Wiki markup, the visual editor, or both, before editing in the mainspace.

Practice by adding content along with a citation. Your assignments will require that you reference the content you add to articles.

You can copy the content that you add to an existing Wikipedia article, or you can "move" the content to create a new article if one does not exist for the topic.
