TECH TUESDAYS: DID YOU KNOW...?
You can create group Wikis in Campus Pack? To get started, add a "Journals, Blogs, & Wikis" external learning tool link to your course. Set up a separate Wiki for each group. Then change the permissions in Campus Pack to create private or public group Wikis by restricting each Wiki to a specified group of authors and viewers. This is a great feature that allows you to restrict the editing capabilities of a Wiki to a small group, while still allowing the entire class to view the Wiki. The Group Wiki article will help you set up group Wikis in Campus Pack.   Need more information about working with D2L? Visit the all new D2L Solutions Center for lots of how-to videos and documents!
