What is a Wiki?

A wiki is a collection of collaboratively authored web documents. Basically, a wiki page is a web page everyone in your class can create together, right in the browser, without needing to know HTML. A wiki starts with one front page. Each author can add other pages to the wiki by simply creating a link to a page that doesn't exist yet.​

What is a Blog?

Blogs are a form of online journal used by millions of people around the world for self-expression and communicating with family and friends. Blogs are usually organized as a chronological series of postings created by the author of the blog. Blogs usually are written by one person, although Campus Pack Blogs in Moodle allow you to setup individual or group blogs wher your students can collaborate

Campus Pack Wikis and Blogs, in Moodle, are best used to enable peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration.​
