Revision history [back]

The old Wikipedia-based course page system provided significant challenges to everyone: Instructors found the user right request and wiki code confusing and difficult to use, Wikipedia editors found it hard to track student activity, and Wiki Ed staff spent significant time troubleshooting problems and creating workarounds. And because it was based in MediaWiki, the software that runs Wikipedia, it was challenging to get any features added or changed. We’ve designed the new Dashboard system based on feedback from our program participants, and we’ll be able to continue to develop features for it over the coming terms.
