Wiki means "quick" in Hawaiian and has become familiar as a common online editing space. This tool could be useful for group contributions to a joint group paper or project in class, or a class-wide creation of a lecture, or a committee production of a policy. All versions and additions are saved, along with each version's contributor, so it is easy to see who is doing what and how much they are adding. Text and images may be added, as well as additional linked pages for more content.
- Click on the first page's question mark.
- For the option HTML Only: To add text, type directly into the html editor box, format with the editor, and Save.
- For the option No HTML: Open a word processor, like Microsoft Word, select text from a previously constructed file and copy. Open the Moodle Wiki and choose proper page and then the Edit tag. Click in the text box and paste.
- Click on Update this Wiki.

- Click on Browse to search your computer for a .jpg or .gif image file. (Use the Attachments tag if you want to include any other type of file.) Then click on upload. The image shouldn't be more than about 65KB and 250 by 250 pixels, which could fill about about half your screen. The name of the image file should be lower case letters and contain no spaces, e.g. manet.jpg.
- After clicking on Upload, you should see a dark red or black page, with the location of the image. Select everything in the brackets, including the brackets and copy.
