Yes. Working in groups can be a great way for your students to get comfortable editing Wikipedia. If your students work in groups, they will still need to sign up for an individual Wikipedia username and enroll their usernames on the course page. Do not have your students create group accounts, as that's against Wikipedia policy. As the students will be enrolled on the course page individually, you can assign one article to a group by assigning each group member that particular article.

We recommend that each group of students choose one sandbox to work in. Then, each member of the group should make their contribution to that sandbox while logged in under their own username. This will ensure that their work is retained when moved into the article main space.

How do students edit sandboxes that are not their own? I thought sandboxes were private to a user's account. I can edit a user page, but not their sandbox....
