Dashboard - ICON / Wiki integration

Using Instructor Tools, you can create a wiki site from your ICON Dashboard, and sync your ICON classlist with the wiki site permissions, which is useful if you want to use a wiki site for online collaboration with your class.

To do this, use the Instructor Tools on the Instructor Dashboard. You can either create a new wiki site or connect to an existing one.

NOTE: Creating a wiki site will no longer auto link to your course. However linking to an existing wiki site does still work. In order to link a new wiki site please contact the ITS Help Desk at 319-384-4357, its-helpdesk@uiowa.edu, or http://its.uiowa.edu/contact.

1. Click on Instructor Tools next to the course site that you would like to link to a wiki site. Select Add a Wiki Site.

 

2. You can choose to either Create a New Wiki Site or Link to an existing Wiki Site.

 

 

Creating a wiki site: The Wiki Course Key is auto-filled with the OU number of your course site. The key is used in the wiki’s URL web address, so you can leave it or change it to something else short. Feel free to modify the Wiki Site Name to better match your course or the purpose of the wiki space. Click “Create and Link.”

NOTE: Creating a wiki site will no longer auto link to your course. However linking to an existing wiki site does still work. In order to link a new wiki site please contact the ITS Help Desk at 319-384-4357, its-helpdesk@uiowa.edu, or http://its.uiowa.edu/contact.


Linking to an existing wiki site: You will see a list of all wiki sites that you have the ability to link to your course site. Choose one from the list and click “Link Selected Wiki to this Course.”

 

3. The wiki site has been linked. You can remove the site or add another.
