Wikis are very flexible and can be set up and edited in many different ways. A wiki Wiki may house collaboratively-developed lecture notes for an entire cohort, act as a space in which a group can collect evidence prior to a presentation, or be used as a brainstorming facility for an individual project.


  1. To add a Wiki to your course, Turn editing on, locate an appropriate section, click Add an activity or resource, and select Wiki then click add.
  2. Enter a Name and Description (which you can display if you wish).
  3. Select a Mode for the wiki, i.e. collaborative or individual, and enter a First page name.
  4. If required, select Common module settings to alter the Group mode mode. 
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save and display.


More information about the Wiki activity, including its settings, use, and an FAQ, can be found on MoodleDocs.
