Start it—two ways

For Eduzendium articles, there are separate instructions for setting them up in a course-specific format.

1. The easy way

Type the title of your new article in the box to the right, click on the bar below it, and you've begun! You can use the search box (menu panel, left, this page, top) to check for related articles that already exist. See Topic Choice and Naming Conventions if you need to.

2. The complete way, with subpages
