  • 8. Important Considerations
    • Private or Public
      • Should anyone be able to edit or just members?
      • How will you create accounts for all your students?
    • Advertisements
  • 9. Use Templates
    • BEST PRACTICE
      • Create templates to easily replicate common wiki pages your students will need.
        • Go to "Manage Space.”
        • Click on "Manage Templates.”
        • Name the new template. You can create your template from a blank page or an existing page on your space.
  • 10. Create a Picture Library
    • BEST PRACTICE:
      • Upload files without adding them to a wiki page before students edit wiki.
        • Go to "Manage Space.”
        • Click on "List and Upload Files.”
        • Click "Upload Files" and then choose the file (or files) to upload from your desktop.
        • Click "Select" and the file will begin uploading.
  • 11. Instructional Preparation
    • BEST PRACTICE:
      • Create your wiki pages and outline prior to class use.
        • Click "New Page" in the left sidebar.
        • Select the template to start from.
        • Create your new page. You can then edit your page based on the template or save it as is.
  • 12. Limitations and Considerations
    • Editing
      • Simultaneous editing of one page in a lab setting presents challenges
      • Learning Center approach is more effective
    • History Tab
      • Is an excellent monitoring tool
      • In a public space, only IP addresses are shown
  • 13. ANALYZING
  • 14. Assessment
    • BEST PRACTICE:
      • Incorporating assessment into the wiki provides information needed to adjust teaching and learning while they are happening.
        • Use the DISCUSSION tab to create assessment questions.
        • Copy the URL of each question and link to it from the wiki page.
