Alternative wiki. Simple wiki designed for teaching and learning.
Latest release:
495 sites
12 fans
Current versions available: 13

This is an alternative wiki that you can install into standard Moodle.

It does not replace the standard wiki, and operates alongside it. The key
intention of this wiki is to provide a simple teaching tool suitable for
student use with minimal required training. It is in no way intended to be a full-fledged wiki like MediaWiki. For example, there is no wiki syntax except for links with two square brackets.

Please note: This plugin is no longer supported in Moodle Tracker. All support requests should be via the GitHub repository issue tracker (https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-mod_ouwiki).


This plugin is part of set Open University.

    2014042800 is the correct version number, there has never been a 2014042801 version of the plugin.

    Is there a firm release date set for the version that supports Moodle 2.7? Cheers,

    Early December is the official release. However you can use Master now (which should be ok, but - disclaimer - is not fully release tested).

    Thank you Jason. That should work well. We are not planning to roll out the upgrade until the end of December, so for now we can use the "unofficial" release for our testing and install the final release when it's available. Thanks for the quick response. We will be happy to report our testing results if that's helpful.

    The OUwiki don't auto-create the summary of the sessions of the page of Wiki. Do you think to add this in the plugin? Thanks.

    I am not able to see "Lock the Page" feature in 2.9 release? Has this been intentionally disabled?

    Hi Stephen, thanks for reminder - sorry it should have been last month but we have now created the MOODLE_33_STABLE branches for all plugins (I think). Also we updated MOODLE_32_STABLE to our latest (final) 3.2 version.

    if you define grade (in settings) and backup-restore the activity,
    grade definition does not pass..
    it will be great if you can fix that!

    We are enthusiastic about the OU Wiki here at UMass Amherst. Is a release date set for Moodle 3.5? Thanks!

    Hi Michele, see comment at top of this page about our release schedule in general - we will go live with 3.5 in December and should hopefully publish a stable branch for ouwiki soon after, but if you want it right now albeit with slightly less testing having been completed, you can get the 'master' branch from our github. This is running against 3.5 in our dev/test systems.

    Hi Sam, in your last comment on 26 October 2018, you mentioned that the 3.5 stable branch would be ready around December, but there's been no release. Is this plugin still being maintained and if so when is the 3.5 version coming out?

    Yes, our plugins are still being maintained. The 3.5 stable version has been around in our github for ages, and 3.6 stable is now there too (I just ran an update). 3.7 stable should get there around December, somebody might have to hassle us if we forget. The actual Moodle plugin entries haven't been updated, I'm hoping somebody else here will do that at some point, but in the meantime, feel free to download directly from the github link.

    Hi, Sam, Jason, Alan! I think I have found an error while I was working in my language package. It is in ouwiki > ouwiki:grade, where you can read the word "have" twice. Maybe one of these "have" should be deleted.
    Thank you,
