Information for Tutors

In order to add your material to wikiToLearn, you first need to create an account on the wikitolearn.org platform.

WikiToLearn is using the media wiki syntax. Even if you are familiar with the media wiki syntax, it is always a good idea to start reading the manual (https://en.wikitolearn.org/Manual) before adding material.

In case you have already prepared your course in a different format, you can probably use pandoc to convert it to the media wiki syntax.

Supported input formats:

  • docbook, haddock, html, json, latex, markdown, markdown_github, markdown_mmd, markdown_phpextra, markdown_strict, mediawiki, native, opml, org, rst, textile

For example: Conversion from markdown to mediawiki syntax:

  • pandoc -w mediawiki README.md -o README.wiki

In addition, WikiToLearn supports a conversion from LaTeX and MS Word documents.
