Creating a Wiki: Creating a Collaborative Space within Your Course (Movie, 02:01)
Wikis allow multiple students to share and collaborate on one or more pages of content. Pages can be created and edited quickly, while tracking changes and additions. Instructors can create one or more wikis for all course members to contribute to and wikis for specific groups to use to collaborate. Wikis can also be used to record information and serve as a repository for course information and knowledge.
Grading a Wiki: Providing Summative Feedback on Student Wiki Contributions (Movie, 01:58)
After a wiki is set to be graded, a column is automatically created in the Grade Center. Then, individual student contributions can be accessed from the wiki’s Participation Summary page. A user’s name can be selected and all the pages the student authored and edited can be viewed to determine the grade. The Participation Summary page allows you to start at a high level summary and drill down to the changes that an individual student made. The grade applies to the wiki, not an individual wiki page.
