From Systems Engineering
Welcome to The ITNG Wiki. This is where we provide guides to help you use the systems and software available in the school.
Besides the wiki, ITNG offers a range of other resources which you will need during the course of your work, and beyond these there are various resources in the wider University. This page provides an easy way to find them. Look below to see some of what is offered, or use the box on the right to access some of the more common ones.
Did you know that if you are logged in you can create your own pages? You can create your own user page eg if your username is ad123456 User:Ab123456 or just create a page such as Cool Wall by entering the page name in the search box and clicking on the "create this page" link. Also each page (even ones you can not edit) have a "discussion" page which you can use to add comments about the page or your own tips, etc. such as Talk:Tips_for_readingLive
