At Ubwiki, tools and information take shape in a form directly relevant to students of practically any subject. It enables the forming of communities of like-minded students with common learning goals, cooperating in gathering relevant information. In particular, we are focused on the needs of students for government careers who need to be approved for standard tests.
There are many reasons to study with Ubwiki, but this might be the most important: unlike most platforms around the Internet, Ubwiki was created specifically for students and, therefore, you will not need to waste your valuable time figuring out how to best use disparate services.
In your office, you will find the artifacts that result from your studies in the other areas of Ubwiki. For example, articles you wrote, study notes, pages marked as studied, your participation in forums and others.
Also in your office you can set a nickname, which will allow you to take part in the forum, as well as to those a combination of color and icon which will form your avatar.
And finally, in your office you can create pages and text documents. Pages can be turned into full-fledged courses, as long as they have a title and no sections.
Courses are structures that contain and shape the information stored at Ubwiki. Courses are divided in modules containing topics, which are standard Ubwiki pages, capable of carrying a number of element types, such as images and videos, as well as study notes which are private to the users with access to it.
Courses can be shared in a number of ways: they can be limited to their authors or shared with a study group or individual. It is also possible to block other users from changing the course content, which is thus treated as an 'authored' work. In this way, something like a book can be fully written in Ubwiki, while making use of the forum for each page so that an engaged community can help the author realize his creative vision.
Free pages form a network of topics and communities, gathering information which can be repurposed for courses. In this way, they create something similar to a virtual encyclopedia, with space for a community built around any imaginable area of interest.
They are, simultaneously, 'tags' which organize otherwise unconnected information found throughout Ubwiki.
We recommend new users to add to their office free pages corresponding to their personal areas of interest. This will allow them to follow the development of these pages, also being able to take part in the conversation in the forum of each page.
In the library, users will find information about works of a number of types, such as books, movies, music records and the such. Library items added to your office will become a part of your personal collection.
Above all, we recommend users to write about books they read as a knowledge fixation method. To take part in a community effort to improve book summaries is possibly one of the best ways to study a book.
In the market, you will find information about all the marketable products connected with the content of Ubwiki courses, acting as a sort of classified section of a newspaper. Information about courses, teachers, coaches and the such can be freely included.
Access to private Ubwiki courses, which anyone can create, can also be sold in the market.
