Eventually, our multilingual how-to-program tutorial wiki should contain accurate instructions on almost every imaginable topic.
Every month, thousands of people turn to WikiOD to learn how to do something in the program. By contributing your knowledge to WikiOD, you will be helping people all over the world learn something new.

How does WikiOD work?
WikiOD is a wiki, which is a website that anyone can write and anyone can edit. Any visitor to WikiOD can create a new tutor page to write about how to do something in the program. Once the tutor page is submitted, any other visitor can edit, improve, or change the page. Over time, the quality of the page rises as many people make improvements. All changes on the site are displayed on "recent changes" and also in the "page history" of each specific article. WikiOD works because we trust our users to behave in a manner which helps others. As a result, our contributors quickly remove vandalism, nonsense, and material that is inappropriate for our how-to-program tutorial.
How can I help?
Please improve WikiOD by editing any page that needs help. Browse our tutorial page in the early stages of development and see if you can add some information. If you are a good speller, will benefit from your expertise. Share your knowledge if you can find a topic not yet covered by writing a new tutor page by clicking "Write a Tutorial" in the upper right corner of the header menu. If you need ideas for topics to write you can look at a list of suggested tutorial made by other users. Be sure to search first, though, as many of the suggested tutorials have already been written. You are welcome to edit any existing page you find on the site. Read this page to learn more ways to contribute to WikiOD. Take the WikiOD Tour to learn more even more.
