The course description uses Markdown syntax, which you can use to create links, bulleted or numbered lists, and wikitext code examples. (ask.wikiedu.org also uses Markdown.)

Put the text of a link in square brackets, followed by the url in parentheses:

[Wiki Ed dashboard](http://dashboard.wikiedu.org)

Use an asterix followed by a space to create a bullet:

* This is a bullet item
    * This is a subitem, indented with four spaces
    * This is another subitem

Create numbered lists like this:

1. First numbered item
2. Second numbered item

Use backticks to enclose wikitext code examples:

[[File:Example.jpg|thumb|This is a wikitext example.]]

See the markdown documentation for more details.

The Timeline has a what-you-see-is-what-you-get-editor with limited formatting options.
