Registering a Wiki


Why does my Wiki require students to register and request membership to the Wiki?


  • Wikispaces 
  • Blackboard Original


Newly created Wiki pages will automatically be set to private, so that only members can view or edit their contents. For students to access the contents, they will have to be part of a group that has permissions. The best option will be to set the Wiki as public, with no edits allowed from non-members.


  1. Open the Wiki page.
  2. Click the Settings gear icon.
  3. In the Permissions tab under settings, you will need to verify your account to make the Wiki viewable by the public. This can be done with a phone number or by subscribing. 
  4. Once verified, under permissions, you will now have the option to make the Wiki viewable by the public, and at the bottom, before the save option, you will have the option to make edits exclusive to members. Both items should be selected.
