The first version of AulaWiki was developed by http://www.escire.com
for Colegio Maria Virgen
, a spanish secondary school.
AulaWiki (for Tiki 1.9+ ) has been completely rewritten (since the previous old version for Tiki 1.8.x) and now it offers a more general set of tools that can be used not only for school (Project management, groupware...)
The most important concept implemented on AulaWiki, is Workspaces
. It allows groups administration of Tiki resources (users, groups, wiki pages, blogs....).
A workspace can be every thing that you define: a course, a student group, a project....
How to install AulaWiki?
(documentation thanks to Jimi at tw.o
First you should click on Admin mods, as shown in Figure 1:
The mods page will open and you will need to change the server to get the latest package, because the original one offered is not current. So click on Mods configuration
, see Figure 2:
When the configuration page opens, change the server to http://www.escire.org/aulawiki/mods
. Then click on the Save
button, and then click on the Mods Install/uninstall
link to bring you back to the mods page (see Figure 3).
Now you will need to download and install the package. You may need to go to the root of your install and run the fixperms.sh script to allow you to install this. Click on the link 0.5
as circled in red on the left. The last step is to install the package by clicking on the link install
that is circled in red on the right (see Figure 4).
There are a few ways to get the menu to refresh to bring up the Aulawiki options. But your best bet is to log out and then log back in.
- Use "Admin>Admin mods" to get the code, from: http://www.escire.org/aulawiki/mods
- Once installed, assign module "aulawiki_assistant" to your group, and follow instructions there. So far, they include:
