[edit | edit source]## Construction

[edit | edit source]This Wikiversity will be constructed primarily between January and April 2012. If you're a participant and haven't edited a wiki before, you might try reading Wikiversity:Introduction for an introduction. Once you know how to navigate and edit the lessons above will be at your fingertips. You can read them to refine your understanding. Expand the lesson to master the material. Add examples where you can. Ask questions when you need, answer questions when you can. And remember to be bold!

See the Construction page for a list of items that need attention.
