Tip #97: Using the Collaboration Space to Link Wikis and Blogs

Tip: By creating a link on the course menu you can provide students with quick access to all wikis and blogs in the course. Students will see the wikis and blogs that are available to them.

  1. Hover over the plus sign (+) icon at the top of the Course Menu to show the drop down menu. Select Create Tool Link.

  2. Enter the name of the link that will appear on the course menu.

  3. Under Type, select Campus Pack Collaboration Space.

  4. Check the box next to Available to Users.

  5. Click Submit.

  6. Once students enter the Campus Pack Collaboration Space through this link, they will see all wikis, blogs, journals, and podcasts that have been made available to them in the course. Students will also see a list of course members and recent activity in the blogs and wikis.

Many thanks to Christopher Johnson in Distance Education for sharing this tip with us!
