So you've followed my advice and set up a Splendid (and functional) Wiki for your students to collaborate and produce some magnificent pieces of work on. However.... you can't really be arsed to check the said Wiki every day to for updates! Not when there are far more interesting things to do with your life such as checking Facebook, checking Emails, checking Twitter, checking your phone for texts, checking Failblog oooor actually doing other work!
Well luckily the clever chaps at Microsoft (you might of heard of them) thought of this whilst they created SharePoint, a nifty little tool called "Alert Me". This tool can send you live updates about your super special/cool wiki's as they happen or send you daily/weekly summaries.
This tools not narrowed down for just wiki's it can be used on all pages located on Tulip/Sharepoint so Blogs, Forums document library or a site as a whole.... I might set this up for all my Tulip sites (all 712 of them) just to receive loads of emails to make me feel popular (don't worry I'm not that vain I've got a mirror for reassurance).
Errr Steve enough mumbling how do I turn on this Magical tool?
Well navigate to the page you wish to be alerted about. And bring up the edit pannel:
