Hello,

Myself, I have a presentation which shows a basic wiki principle; I
noticed that showing the same thing onwiki would make me jumping too
much from page to page.
Showing Wikipedia functionalities then onwiki I call "Wikipedia
surfing" (version history, talk pages etc.).
If it is a workshop with the intention to make people edit then I
create a "pseudo encyclopedia" on user subpages. That's a number of
simplified Wikipedia articles with hardly any markup. From article to
article, the complexity and amount of wikisyntax grows. The newbies in
groups of 2 correct the language and content (I put in some errors for
them).
I prefer that because editing real WP makes people anxious, and I want
to be undisturbed with the newbies.
Kind regards
Ziko
