Blackboard Learn: Blackboard Wikis

Blackboard Wikis allow you to work with other students to create a collaborative web resource.

Your lecturers can set up a single wiki for the entire course, which all course members can edit.

But you are most likely to be provided with a wiki inside a Group, which all Group members can edit.

On some modules, Wikis may be used for assessment.

Your module convenor will direct you to where to access your Wiki. The first example shows a link to all Wikis in a course from the course menu.

Group Wikis will be accessible from the Groups menu and the Group home page.
