Create collaborative online content with multiple contributors.

Assessing Campus Pack Wikis

Campus Pack is a new addition to VU Collaborate that offers Wikis, blogs, journals and podcasts to staff and students.

Campus Pack Wikis allow students in your space to collaborate, edit and comment on basic web pages. Wikis can support group work and peer review by utilizing text, links and media.

To learn how to create or use a Campus Pack Wiki access these guides: Creating a Campus Pack Wiki, Using a Campus Pack Wiki
