19 Focus/SIS e-learning Online Course Manual for Teachers 18 Setup a Wiki A wiki is a collection of collaboratively authored web documents. Basically, a wiki page is a webpage everyone in your class can create together, right in the browser, without needing to know HTML. A wiki starts with one front page. Each author can add other pages to the wiki by simply creating a link to a page that does not exist yet. An entire class can edit a document together, creating a class product, or each student can have their own wiki and work on it with their classmates. It may be useful to think of a wiki's front page as a structured table of contents. Essentially, a wiki is organized by its links. After accessing the e-learning system, to create a wiki: 1. Click Turn Editing On in the top-right corner. 2. Click the pull down arrow for Add a Activity in the appropriate topic box, and choose Wiki. 3. On the Adding a New Wiki page, give the wiki a descriptive name. 4. In the summary field, describe the purpose of the wiki and what you expect students to contribute. 5. Click Show Advanced to display the following additional options: o Print wiki name of every page If you select this option, the top of each page will have the name of the wiki. o HTML mode There are three options: No HTML, safe HTML or HTML only. No HTML will display all HTML tags as tags. Safe HTML will allow certain tags to be displayed. HTML only enables the HTML editor. o Allow binary files

20 Focus/SIS e-learning Online Course Manual for Teachers 19 Binary files are graphics, audio, video, and other non-text resources. If you want students to be able to add files as attachments, set this to Yes. o Wiki auto-linking options A new page can be created in the wiki by typing a word using CamelCase i.e. with a capital letter at the beginning and a capital letter somewhere else in the word. It's called CamelCase because the two capital letters resemble a two-humped camel. CamelCase combines all the words for the link into one word. Each word in the link is capitalized. When a word is added in CamelCase, the wiki automatically creates a new page and makes the word a link. You can disable this feature if you wish, so that typing a word enclosed in square brackets is the only way of creating a new page. o Student admin options When students can edit a page, you can allow them certain administrative privileges in the wiki. o Page name You may wish to seed the wiki with a page name for the first page. o Choose an initial page This can be the first wiki page that is created, or a way to switch to a different front page. 6. Select the common module settings. o Group mode Another location to set the group mode for the activity. If group mode is forced in the course settings then this setting will be ignored. o Visible This determines whether students may view the activity or not. 7. Click Save Changes to create the first page of your wiki. Type your desired content into the text box for the first page of your wiki. You can then create new pages that link to each other. Click Save when done entering content for the first page of your wiki to view your updated wiki.

21 Focus/SIS e-learning Online Course Manual for Teachers 20 Adding a New Page to a Wiki Participants in a Wiki can create a new page by editing an existing Wiki page and adding a Wiki link that points to the page they want to create. A Wiki link is simply any character string enclosed in square brackets. The string is converted to a link by the following process: 1. Click the Edit tab on the front page of the Wiki. 2. In the Edit this page PAGE NAME box type the title of the new page that you want to create. Enclose the title text in square brackets. Like this: [New Page Name] 3. Click Save. 4. The page you have just edited will now be displayed. The words "New Page Name" will be displayed with a question mark link immediately after it and may look like: New Page Name?

22 Focus/SIS e-learning Online Course Manual for Teachers Click on the "?" and you will be taken to an edit screen for your new page called: "New Page Name." 6. You can now add text to the new page and edit this new page, and then click Save. 7. To return to the original link page: 1. Click on the page link under referring links at the bottom of the new page in view mode. 2. Or from the Choose Wiki Links drop down menu, select Site map. Click on the original page displayed on the screen. The words "New Page Name" will have now become a link to your new page.
