A Wiki (Hawaiian for "fast") is a collaborative hypertext system for websites. In contrast to HTML pages users can not only read Wiki pages but also edit them. A Wiki can document group work or serve as a kind of knowledge base for your course. Wiki pages are created by means of a special Wiki syntax before editing and linking them to one another.

Introduce Wikis as knowledge base created by advanced students to be used as reference in an introductory course; or as a list of links for series of lectures that are related thematically.

A Wiki is a learning resource usually embedded in an OpenOlat course. You can use the same Wiki in several courses ans also stand-alone.

...

By default all course participants have the right to read and write Wikis. Only those OpenOlat users having created Wiki pages or registered Wiki owners are allowed to delete those Wiki pages. These pre-set rights can be adapted in the tab "Access" of your course element according to your needs.

Only registered Wiki owners are allowed to modify a Wiki menu.

If you do no longer wish to use a Wiki as collaborative tool but only as a kind of reference, (i.e. you do not want its content to be altered) just lock that Wiki's access in the tab "Access" of your course element in the section "Edit/create article."

This chapter will explain how course authors can create Wikis in OpenOlat before embedding them in a course. Here you will find an illustrated step-by-step instruction as well as information on how to adapt Wikis according to your needs.

The wiki module has been disabled by a system administrator if you can't find neither the Wiki course element nor the learning ressourceweb pages. Here participants and coaches can create hypertexts together. By default, all participants have read and write access.

In OpenOlat a Wiki is a learning resource that can be used independently of a course or integrated into a course. Furthermore groups also contain a group tool "Wiki".

If a Wiki is integrated into a course it can be used in several courses. If you have not yet created a course you will find information on that in the chapter "Creating Courses" before you create your Wiki by means of the guide "Four steps to your Wiki".

Possible applications of Wikis

A wiki can be used, for example, for the joint text creation of groups or the entire plenum of a course. In this way the content of a course can be created cooperatively or the coach can create a wiki structure which the participants have to fill with appropriate content. A common idea, in the form of short profiles, can also be implemented in the Wiki.

Or use a Wiki as a knowledge base that can be created by course participants of a higher semester and used as a reference in preliminary courses or introductory events. Also thematic link collections or collections of exam questions can be created together in a Wiki.

Characteristics of an OpenOlat Wiki

In a wiki, all participants have equal rights and can edit, change and delete content (read and write rights) on all wiki pages. Only complete Wiki pages as well as the Wiki itself can only be deleted by the owner of learning resources or courses. In your course you can also adjust user permissions for participants and coaches in the tab "Wiki learning content".

Wiki pages are created, edited and linked by means of a Wiki syntax.
Make sure to create targeted links between the individual pages to create a real hypertext with multiple nodes.
If you can neither find the course element nor the learning resource "Wiki" in your OpenOlat instance an administrator has disabled this feature system-wide.
