Blackboard (Faculty) - Wikis: About Wikis

This document provides an overview of the wiki tool in Blackboard.

The Wiki tool allows a student or a group of students to create a single web page or multiple web pages within Blackboard. They are most commonly used to define or elaborate on a given topic.

It is recommended that the faculty member uses a rubric for wiki activities so that students know the expectations for wiki content. If the wiki contains multiple pages, it is a good idea for the faculty member to create these in advance.

Sample assignments:
  • Digital portfolios
  • Define the geography, culture, or fun facts about a country
  • Bibliography of a person
  • Historical moments
  • Student created study guides
  • Resources repository
  • Glossary
