Review of IM tools

From February until today in the course of Information Management I have been learning, above all, how to manage references in order to make contributions to improve Wikipededia articles. At first, we were only using Twitter and Océano, two websites that were quite known for us from the beginning.

Then, we have been using some different and interesting tools in order to work with the references. We had to create a new account in all of them and start learning how to write references of different things such as books, journals, etc. Among the different tools, I would highlight:

– Refworks

– Flow

It is important to mention that the use of those tools has been very practical, because you could share the same references in both websites, by only clicking on them.

After that, we created our main Wikipedia page in order to start making contributions and improvements to the articles about our favourite topics. We learnt how to use the Sanboxes and Templates provided by Wikipedia in both languages, English and Spanish.

Finally, another interesting thing we learnt was how to create a Mindmap about some Wikipedia’s article’s categories.

I would recommend you to read carefully this article, because I believe that the tools I am providing in it are quite useful and interesting. Enjoy them!
