Old modules and plugins

Note: This database has been replaced by the Moodle Plugins Directory.

Activity Module: OU wiki

Example screen
Type: Activity Module
Requires: Moodle 1.9 or later
Status: Contributed
Maintainer(s): The Open University

Key points and issues

  • Relies on HTML editor; does not use wiki markup except for links.
  • Can live alongside the existing wiki - does not make any attempt to convert content.
  • Includes integrated comments on pages or headings; or a new annotation system that lets teachers add 'notation' to a wiki page.
  • Supports most features of the old wiki except for wiki markup (as above) and attachments.

If you want a search facility for the wiki, you must also install the ousearch block.

Note: If reporting any bugs with ouwiki, please use the Moodle bug tracker (select contributed modules, then OU wiki under 'component'). Alternatively you can contact me directly to me by email or Moodle private message. Posting comments here isn't a good idea if you want a response, because I don't get automatic notification of comments on this page.


You probably want the stable version. This version corresponds to the latest OU version that is running on live OU servers, meaning that it is likely to be highly tested and reliable.

In order to get the stable version, do not use any of the download links at bottom of this page. Instead, you must access it from the following link:

Look for the latest version number (bearing in mind that changes to major version number will include new features etc. and may require more testing) and download that.

Note: If you want the unstable version, for example if you are doing development work, this can be found in the Moodle CVS or by the download links below.
