What can I do with a Moodle wiki?

Full Instructional PDF

A wiki is an online document that multiple authors can add to or edit and have the ability to see each other’s contributions. Some things the Moodle wiki tool is good for:

– presentation or meeting sign-ups

– brainstorming or choosing project topics

– forming groups for projects

– collaborative writing projects

– collaborative review sessions

In this example, we’ll create a wiki to choose group project topics.

From the Gear icon at the upper right of your course page, choose Turn editing on.

Go to the section where you want to add the wiki. Click Add an activity or resource.

Scroll down. Click Wiki. Click Add.

Fill in the Name field. This name will appear on the main course page.  The description will appear at the top of the wiki activity. NOTE: Be sure to tell students that they need to click Edit to use the page and Save when they’re done. Fill in the First page name. This will display just below the Wiki name. At the bottom of the page, click Save and display.
