As the students progress does each one see each other's sandboxes? correspondence with each other? with the Wikipedia staff? Are there settings to control this?

Hi RJBazell - that's an excellent question!

All of a person's edits on Wikipedia are completely visible to the public via their edit history. For example, you can see a person's edits by going to the "view history" tab of any page on Wikipedia and clicking the "contrib" option by their name.

As sandboxes are typically more difficult to find, I recommend that students bookmark their classmate's sandboxes so they can find them more easily.

As far as communication goes, students can communicate with one another and with other editors or faculty via their userpages. Below are some other related questions:
