In order to participate actively in this WIKIdeVEGA
(a) either you must Create an account by yourself, option that shall be available for certain times upon demand,
(b) or you must have been assigned a user name and password by RobertoDiaz@LopedeVega.es, the responsible teacher for informatics at the International School Lope de Vega. Without this you still can read everything and even copy text, but you are not able to edit anything.

You may also want to learn more details about images & other files, and how to handle pages. Categories and namespaces are used to structure the Wiki in general, whereas tables help to arrange information in an article. Templates and variables are more sophisticated tools useful to make work more efficient.
