myCourses Using a Wiki

This articles describes how to use wiki pages in a myCourses course.

Adding a Wiki Page:

Each content page in myCourses is really a wiki, which is simply a web page that allows collaborative editing of its content and structure by its users. By default, only teachers can edit content pages in myCourses.

1. To make any content page a wiki page that can be edited by multiple people, simply click the Options drop-down menu (below the Rich Content Editor) and select Teachers and students or Anyone can edit this page.

Best Practice Recommendations:

  • Include "wiki" in the name of the page.
  • Link the wiki page to the Syllabus or the Home page.
  • Inform students that the wiki exists and that they are free to edit it.
