Wikis can be used in class as a collaborative tool for creating group web content.  The entire class can work on a document or project together, or students can each have their own wiki and work on it with you and their classmates.  There is also the option to use wikis using Moodle Groups.

2. Click one of the Add an activity or resource links and select Wiki from the list.

3. Type a name for the Wiki and a description of the assignment, if you like.

4. Give the first page of your Wiki a name and choose the Wiki mode.  Leave the default format as HTML and Check Force format.
