Wikis are a powerful tool for collaborative work. Select the Wiki assignment from Moodle - note the wiki icon.

 

Wiki assignment


Your instructor will inform if the Wiki assignment is for the entire class to edit a document together, creating a class product, or for each student to create their own wiki and work on it with your professor and classmates.

It may be useful to think of a wiki's front page as a structured table of contents.

Essentially, a wiki is organized by its links. You can edit or add to a wiki by clicking Edit and adding whatever content you would like. To add a new page place name between brackets ([[ ]]). Save the page when done.
