Adding a Wiki activity

Wikis are collections of collaboratively authored web pages, beginning with a home page that students can edit, and to which they can link more pages. You can create wikis at course, group and individual level.

  • A course wiki might be useful for knowledge building around threshold concepts.
  • Wikis could be used for a group project where evidence of planning, knowledge construction and team work are integral to the final mark.
  • Individual wikis can be useful when students are to evidence planning and show drafts of an assignment.

Wikis are particularly useful as part of a group work activity. They are places where students can present the fruits of their research, or the drafts of their group reports, for comment and input from the other members of the group.

For detailed instructions on how to add a Wiki to your module, please check the official Moodle Docs at
