Wikis allow students to add, modify, or delete content using a simplified markup language or a rich-text editor. Most are created collaboratively.

d. Name your Wiki and add some instructions.

e. Make the Wiki Available by selecting Yes, and enter Date Restrictions if necessary.

f. Apply Wiki Participation, select whether or not students can edit or comment on the Wiki. Also apply Grade Settings to allow grading of contributions if the Wiki forms part of an assessment. If so, choose the points possible. It's best to mark out of 100 and weight assignments etc. later in the Grade Centre.
