Wiki Updates

A few updates concerning the Canisius College wiki:

  • After March 1, 2021, the gray lefthand sidebar will be minimized by default. Although still available, it will not automatically appear to users on desktop or laptop computers. While the sidebar appears to provide a navigation menu, it does not always do this in the most efficient way.  More importantly, the sidebar does not appear on mobile devices so it should not be relied upon to assist users in navigating wiki pages and spaces.  You can provide much better navigation within your own pages, using tools outlined here.
  • Revisit your wiki pages and update the materials there. This includes files attached to pages. If your pages are available to anyone, so is any out-of-date information posted there or in attached files, even if they are not linked on visible pages.
  • As part of an effort to assist offices and departments across the college, the Center for Online Learning and Innovation has updated and augmented our guide to using the Canisius College Wiki. The guide provides information on how to improve wiki pages, as well as some time-saving tools and tips. Access the guide here.

If you don’t have a wiki page yet, you can request that COLI create you a page. Follow the guide and add content, create subsequent pages and manage access.

With the overwhelming volume of Emails crowding into faculty, staff and student inboxes, information distributed solely through Email will likely get buried and users will later struggle to find it. Trying to distribute important information by email could be problematic. Consider including it in the wiki where users can continually refer back to it. Save time and Email links to wiki pages that users can bookmark in browsers.

Email helpdesk@canisius.edu for any questions concerning the wiki.
