Now get familiar with how WindTunneling works

How to find your way around a WindTunneling project.

All WindTunneling activities have a similar sub-navigation structure:

  • Get Started – designed to orient you to the activity.
  • Contribute – where you can enter new ideas or respond to others.
  • See Outcomes – where all of the contributions in an activity can be found

So, if you click on an activity title in the menu you will see these three sub-navigation items listed and can get around that particular activity by clicking through them. To find out more read the Navigating Activities article to your left.

Activity Structure Menu: Generating Ideas

Once you click on one of the activities, in this example Generating Ideas is selected, a sub-navigation of three items is listed: Get Started, Contribute, and See Outcomes. These three pages make up the activity. 

The Get Started page will offer you directions, points for reflection, and other information or directions for the activity. This is the preparation point. 

The Contribute page is where you will create, interact, and work with ideas. Each activity offers a different modality for working with ideas. This is where the work happens.

Finally, the See Outcomes page is where all of the work by you and the other participants in the activity is aggregated and shown. This is where the results can be found.
