Step 1: Click "Create an Image Gallery" link in left sidebar. Follow the instructions -- give your gallery a name (SUGGESTION--Put your username or classname in the name) and fill out a description. Click under the blue "parent" box if you want your gallery to be a sub-gallery within another gallery, and select the gallery you want it to be housed in.
Step 2: Click the "Upload Images" link in left sidebar. You will see a scary request about a certificate. Click TRUST. The instructions should be self-explanatory -- you can click the add button or drop and drag your photos. Important: Make sure your images are reasonable sizes, 72 dpi or lower resolution and 5 x 8 max.
Step 3: Edit each image and choose your gallery. To do this, click on the photo in the upload images box (at the bottom just after you uploaded) OR click on "My Workspace" and you will find your recent images on that list; just click the title, edit and choose your gallery and then click "Save".

A Wiki is a document that can be edited by multiple users. It is a good content type to use when you want to create a group project or you are paired up with another student and are producing something together. Read more »
"Blog entry" is the main content type students will use to post their work on this site, including their completed assignments and general writing. It can also be used to post multimedia content on this site.
YWP strongly recommends that teachers have their students post assignments as blogs (or wikis, if applicable). Sometimes teachers have students fulfill assignments by posting comments on the original assignment. This method has much less flexibility -- both in terms of what the students can post (no multimedia, for example), and how student and teacher keep track of content (no ability to keep track of revisions, for example). Students and teachers will typically be better served by having students work and respond to assignments in their own blog space.
