We are excited to support your team create simulation-based open-source surgical training modules that will be low-cost and will allow surgical practitioners to test their new skills.
In the following steps, you will find some basic information regarding the skills and tools you will need as you document your modules.
Creating your module[edit | edit source]
The first and foremost step to publish your training is to create your module. We will take you through all the steps required to get started on creating your modules.

Great job! You are done creating your module. Now you can start publishing your surgical training content on appropedia. You can refer to the GSTC Toolbox for additional information on content creation. We also have some video demonstrations that show you exactly what to do to.

Advanced features[edit | edit source]
Page history[edit | edit source]
We encourage you to be bold and try editing pages without any fear of making mistakes. All pages have a History section that lists all changes made to a page since it was created. As an example, you can see this page's history. A history page can help you:
- By showing you who was involved in the page creation process.
- To make sure no content is lost while you or multiple people are editing.
- To revert any changes done by error.
We hope that you can collaborate with your team and edit away in a way that allows your team to collaborate efficiently.
Ask for support[edit | edit source]
We want your experience creating your surgical modules to be as rewarding and straightforward as possible. That includes any question or issue that may arise during content creation. Whenever you need assistance, we're here to help:
Submit a ticket[edit | edit source]
If you encounter any technical difficulty while navigating Appropedia, submitting a ticket through the GSTC dedicated Talk Page is a great way to let us know what's happening so we can sort any issue as soon as possible.
Make sure to state your problem clearly on the subject line and describe what's happening in a detailed and organized manner. It's always helpful to add the solutions you've tried so far, any messages/warnings that may have appeared on your screen and other relevant information.
Join the discussion[edit | edit source]
There's a fair chance your peers have the same questions as you, and a bigger chance we can figure it out as a community.
