We are excited to announce that K-State Online now has wikis and blogs.

After a successful pilot with faculty and students in real courses at K-State, beginning January 2013 K-State Online will offer a wiki and blogging tool powered by Campus Pack. This wiki and blog system has several features of interest to K-State Online users:

  • Create as many blogs or wikis as you need for your course
  • Choose from three settings:
    • Single copy: A wiki/blog for the course
    • Per person: A wiki/blog for each student on your roster
    • Per group: A wiki/blog for each group generated in the K-State Online Student Groups tool
  • Easily subscribe to one or all the blogs and wikis to receive email notifications of the latest activity
  • Gauge the participation and contributions of students using the built-in assessment tool
  • Share the work of your class and students with the public (Note: This is a read-only publishing option, the public cannot participate in the blog/wiki)

As you explore the new tool, help documentation and video tutorials are available in the K-State Online help, which can be accessed by clicking the help button in the top-right corner of any K-State Online page.

Feel free to contact the IT Help Desk (helpdesk@k-state.edu) with any questions, concerns or suggestions!
