Setting up Groups in a Wiki

Group Wikis are a modified version of the Collaborative wiki. This allows any member of the group to edit or modify the wiki. This is great for team building skills and learning to work collaboratively with other people. A group wiki can be made visible to the entire class or made visible only to group members.

NOTE: Groups must be set up in your course prior to enabling groups in the wiki. To set up groups, please click here.
