Blackboard (Students) - Wikis: Create and Edit Wiki Content

This document provides an overview of how to create content in a wiki.

A wiki is like a webpage you can edit and add content. Your instructor must create the wiki. They may have it set up to where you add pages, or you edit the existing pages. They may also have a link to the wikis page instead of directly to the wiki itself. Follow your instructor's directions carefully.
