Wiki types

There are three wiki types: Instructor, Groups, Officer. In addition, like any activity, the wiki has the Moodle group modes: "No Groups" "Separate Groups" and "Visible Groups". This leads to the following matrix of nine possibilities:

No Groups Separate Groups Visible Groups
Instructor There is only one wiki which only the Instructor can edit. Officers can view the contents. There is one wiki for every group which just the Instructor can edit. Officers can view the wiki of their group only. There is one wiki for every group which just the Instructor can edit. Officers can view the wikis for all groups.
Groups There is only one wiki. The Instructor and all Officers can view and edit this wiki. There is one wiki per group. Officers can view and edit the wiki of their own group only. There is one wiki per group. Officers can change the wiki of their own group only. They can view the wikis for all groups.
Officer Every Officer has their own wiki which only they and their Instructor can view and edit. Every Officer has their own wiki, which only they and their Instructor can edit. Officers can view the wikis of other Officers in their group. Every Officer has their own wiki, which only they and their Instructor can edit. Officers can view the wikis of all other Officers in the course.

Unless the group mode has been forced by the course settings, it can be set with the groups icons on the course home page after the wiki has been created.

  • A Instructor can always edit every wiki in the course
