Help:Graduation work

In order to create the pages for the offline and online graduation catalog, we have been using template wiki pages (or forms).

The wiki pages are converted onto web-pages and page layouts. Resulting in layouts more interesting than the wiki.

The advantage of this systems is the coherence and similar structure it provides to each project. As well as the possibility for the graduation webpage to be continuously updated. It also creates a stable and coherent archive of graduation projects
