Administering Wikis

In addition to blogs, Blackboard also introduced Wikis (huh, what’s a wiki?) for classroom use.  For more information on wikis, check out Educause’s “7 Things You should know about Collaborative Editing”.
Choose WIKI from the *Interactive Tool* option.  You can also access it from the *TOOLS* menu.
Similar to blogs, you can choose from an existing wiki, or create a new one.
Be sure to accurately set the wiki options. 
Students must be given guidance on setting up the wiki.
 Once entries have been made, you will see progress via the PARTICIPATION AND GRADING option.
You can view each student’s effort via this dialog box. w6.jpg
