Creating a course Wiki

In the Course Management area—the home office—open the Course Tools tab, then “Wikis”.  In the action bar, click on “Create Wiki”.  We recommend you keep the word “Wiki” in the name. Take a minute to describe the purpose of the wiki and to give instructions. --BEEP-- Make sure to check the grade radio button if you want the wiki to be graded, and you want students to see a due date in the Course Calendar, the Notification Dashboard, and the “To Do” module of your course Home Page as well as on the Blackboard Student app.  Blackboard will automatically create a grading column for you in the Grade Center. Don’t forget to click on “Submit” at the end!

In the Course Management section of your course page, go to the “Grade Center,” then, in the “Full Grade Center,” look for the column that Blackboard created for you.  Note that this column is the last one and may have “fallen off your screen”. Use the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom to find it.  Next, go to “Manage” in the action bar, then to “Column Organization” to reorder the columns as you see fit.  --BEEP--

Next, go to the weighted total column for the grading category to which the wiki assignment belongs--you know, the one with the (suggested) percentage mark at the beginning of the name.  Click on the action button to the right of the column, then on “Edit Column Information”.  Scroll down to the Select Columns and in the Columns to Select box, select the newly created wiki assignment. With the arrow move it to the Selected Columns box, put in 100% then click “OK” to override the warning that may pop up.  Don’t forget to click on “Submit”.
