This guide will teach you how to configure a Wiki activity.

A Wiki activity is a collection of related information, in which users can share their thoughts and ideas about the content.


1. Add a new activity within a Course or Live Learning. Or update an exiting Wiki activity within a Course or Live Learning.


2. Select "Wiki" from the 'Activity Type' dropdown. Fill in the required fields and configure the settings:

  • Wiki Name (Required) - The title of the Wiki activity.
  • Wiki Description (Required) - The description of the Wiki activity.
  • Show Description - The description will be displayed if this toggle is switched on.
  • Who Can Edit - Dictate which users can edit the Wiki.
  • Hidden to Users - The Wiki activity will be hidden to end users if this toggle is switched on.
  • Icon - You are able to select an icon to be displayed against the activity.
  • Course Completion Prerequisite
    • Always available - the Wiki activity will always be available.
    • Only available if the user has a previous completion in this course - the Wiki activity will not be accessible unless a user has a previously completed the course.
    • Not available if the user has a previous completion in this course - the Wiki activity will not be accessible if the user has previously completed the course.
  • Activity Prerequisites - Activity prerequisites allow you to define which other activities in the Course must be completed before this activity can be accessed by users. If a prerequisite is hidden to a user for any reason they will not be required to complete it before accessing this activity.
  • Completion Criteria - Activity completions will be disabled for Wiki activities.


3. Create the Wiki activity by clicking Screen_Shot_2022-04-20_at_1.57.25_pm.png at the bottom of the page. Or update the Wiki activity by clicking Screen_Shot_2022-04-20_at_2.26.05_pm.png.


4. Navigate to the 'Manage Wiki' page by clicking the Wiki activity and then clicking Screen_Shot_2022-04-26_at_1.48.40_pm.png.




5. Edit the title of the Wiki page by clicking the Screen_Shot_2022-04-07_at_11.25.36_am.png icon. And add to the contents of the page by clicking the text editor box bellow the title. Finalise by clicking Screen_Shot_2022-04-14_at_11.47.04_am.png.




6. To create a new page inside the Wiki, click "New Page" in the text editor. You can provide a title for the new page by replacing the placeholder that appears in the text editor. Once you click Screen_Shot_2022-04-14_at_11.47.04_am.png, the new Wiki page will be created and the title you entered will become a link to the new page.




The link to the new page can be removed from the original page, or formatted into a table of contents.


You have now successfully configured a Wiki activity!
