Feedback is most welcome.
How will the group modes work with this Wiki? Have you moved away from the student / group / teacher Wiki matrix?
We still implement wiki for all the course, visible groups and separate groups. However Skodak said no student wiki. However Student wiki will be migrated somehow (no content will be lost)
For the architecture of the wiki is not hard at all to suport students wiki... I'll do it as I'm told
Thanks for the demo - it looks great. One question, though: why is the comments editor so much better than the wiki page editor?
I like the wiki discuss page beter than the comments. But Moodle HQ preferes to integrate the sitewide comments engine, so all the Moodle activitries share the same look and feel for comments.
Maybe we should include also a discuss page... opinions?
Tami, when a wiki is created, the instructor can choose which text editor is used. One of the options is "HTML-Format," which will display the same TinyMCE editor that is used on all other pages in Moodle. The one on the test wiki is the Creole editor, which has fewer buttons and uses special wiki formatting characters.
If you choose the HTML-Format option, users will still need to type in the link notation in order to create new pages, but otherwise text can be formatted in the usual way.
If you go to the test site and create a new wiki, you'll see an option called "Default format." This is where you choose which editor you want to use.
I've created a second wiki on Ludo's test page that uses the HTML-Format editor. Click Edit on the first page to see the editor in action.
Thank you for the detailed reply - I tried it on the demo site and see the difference. Could we add other editors to this wiki? At present we use a MediaWiki platform with WYSIWYG editor that includes the wiki links buttons. I'd like it to be our default editor. Could I add it to the list of available editors?
One of the features of Wiki 2.0 is that (if teacher allows it) when you create a new wiki page you will be able to choose wich format you want the page to have: Creole, Nwiki (wikipedia like) and also the HTML (tinymce) moodle default editor. In HTML format you need to place wiki links between double brackets,
When the cose is stable and living in HEAD I will start making documentation to make this things clear. I'm thinking about shooting short videos and creat a screencast channel on youtube.
