EMA Integration: Blackboard Wiki

This guide is relevant to the following Mode of Submission: Blackboard Wiki

Important information!
Integration will create a gradable Wiki in the Assessment area of the course.

You will need to edit the Wiki settings e.g. provide instructions for students, and check / edit the assessment settings.


Caution!If the assessment requires the use of Group Wikis, you should select 'Other' as the Mode of Submission in RISIS. This will create a Weighted Total column. You will need to create the Group Wikis and enable marking; you can then map the Weighted column to the Grade Centre columns for each wiki.


Configure Wiki settings

Wiki settings are controlled from Control Panel > Course Tools > Wikis.

However there are certain settings – notably Display After / Display Until dates – which have to be applied both to the Wiki itself, and to the link to the Wiki in the Assessment area of the course.

For full details, see Blackboard Blogs, Journals and Wikis: editing settings applied by EMA Integration.

Important information!
Entering instructions for Wikis is the academic’s responsibility.

Likewise optional settings e.g. ‘Allow Users to Edit and Delete Entries’, and choosing how often to ‘Show participants in "needs marking" status’  (i.e. deciding if students should appear in Needs Marking every time a wiki page is saved, or less frequently).
