    After the wiki has been set up you need to open it in the browser, make sure you are signed into Qatar Academy wikispaces, and then request to Join your own wiki.
    Once you have been approved to join, you will then be made an organiser on your own wiki.
    What can you do with the wiki to get ready for next year?
