After you have created your groups and selected a group, you can add members to that group. Just click on the Add/remove users button and you will see the interface you need.
I hope that helps a bit.
The best quick summary of how this works can be found here. Basically the process is to set up groups, then to create the wiki in the right format, and the wikis are created and allocated to groups accordingly.
Hope this helps,
The wiki does the allocation automatically according to the Type and Groups that you select in the setup - the 'right format'. Towards the top of the menu you have Type with a dropdrown - in that case you want Groups. Towards the bottom of the menu you have Groups with a dropdown - I think for that one you want Visible Groups as per the grid linked to in the correspondence above. That means "There is one wiki per group. Students can change the wiki of their own group only. They can view the wikis for all groups." The wikis for all the groups can be selected by an Other Wikis: dropdown in the wiki itself.
Hope that helps!
Here is my question about wiki groups: if I want the wiki to be just between the teacher and the student, then:
I select STUDENT and then VISIBLE GROUPS and named the group JOHN then put one member , JOHN, into the group.
When I did this, and logged on as a different member (ie, Jill looking at John's wiki), it appeared that Jill could make editing changes on a group that she was not enrolled in.
What did I do wrong?
Thanks so much for any help!
I am sorry, but I must be missing something somewhere. Are the students assigned to groups within the wiki set up (roles I think it's called?) I HAVE a group titled "mammals"- set up on the main moodle page- and a wiki titled "mammals." How does moodle "know" how to "match" the group with the page?
I set up my groups as a word document and then uploaded the file to the files category. Then you can add the groups into the settings for the wiki. I believe that's how I did it. It's convoluted.
I have created 6 visible groups with the following aim: Each group should edit each of 6 different sections in a document.
The wiki is well set-up and I would like the first page to work as an index page: So I added: Sec A, Sec B though Sec F, enclosed each of these in square brackets and Moodle wisely created my 6 new pages. Now I want to assign editing of the pages to the different groups while the rest of the class can only view what other groups are doing. This is when I discover that all the new pages were created in Wiki for group A. The other wikis for groups B to F are there, but blank!
Qn: How should I have created the new pages such that a member of group B (for example) can click Section B of the index page and is taken there with editing rights while a member of group C who clicks the same Section B link on the index page will access the page without editing rights.
I could create a totally seperate wiki for each group, but then what about the index page - under which group would I assign it? And of course the problem of losing the feel of working collaboratively when each group works on a different wiki.
