Wikis are collaborative tools that allow all your students to view, contribute and edit content.

About Wikis

Wikis allow course members to contribute and modify one or more pages of course related materials, providing a means of sharing and collaboration. Users can create and edit pages quickly, while tracking changes and additions, allowing for effective collaboration between multiple writers.
