How to Add Classes to a Wiki

There are two main ways you can add a class to a wiki. Both methods will add all the students in your class to the wiki and update any enrolment changes automatically.

Create your class wiki in U of S Course Tools (Blackboard)

Your class will be added automatically if you create your class wiki in U of S Course Tools.

To do so:

  1. Go into U of S Course Tools (BlackBoard)
  2. Go to Tools and enable the Confluence wiki tool. (By default, it is disabled)
  3. Go into the course where you want to create the wiki and use the Tools section to create the wiki. (Be sure to select “Confluence wiki”)


Add your class to an existing wiki

To add your class to an existing wiki, you’ll need to add its Group Name to the wiki permission list. To do so:

  1. Go into the desired wiki space.
  2. Click on Browse by your name on the top right.
  3. Choose Space Admin from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click on Permissions in the left side menu.
  5. Under Groups, click on Edit Permissions.
  6. Enter the group name (if you know it) or search for the group name using the Find Groups icon (magnifying glass icon).

Note: Group names exist for entire class subjects as well as for individual sections and tutorial/lab sections. To learn more, see Group Naming Convention.

For assistance with adding classes to your wiki, contact the ICT Service Desk.
