Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Our wiki's are excellent at presenting documents however such forms are notoriously poor for their usability when it comes to a good user experience for accessing information. They are however frequently used for online engagement such as competitions, editathons or other types of event. This session will show how good design principles can be applied to pages to improve user experience and make our online engagement with readers and editors more effective.
