History: SuggestedFeaturesList

Preview of version: 9

Here's a tentative list of features which some users and devs. would like to see in TikiWiki, when used in an educational institution:

Feature Description Useful for... Users interested Comments
Separate Group project option When enabled, pages created by groups are viewable only by group members. When disabled, group pages are viewable by members outside group. Enabling separate group work, especially when the teaching staff are concerned that the students might copy from one another. clappingtree, xavi This can be done right now (manually) with permisions at category level. Hopefully the AuliWiki module will help on this automatically... (jreyes is working on that for tiki 1.9.x right now, even if should be merged with official tw.o code at 1.10 version...)
Automatic Group Prefix option Pages created by groups are automatically prefixed with Group ID. Avoiding confusion. Students on similar processes may create similarly named pages and end up overwriting one another's effort unintentionally. clappingtree, xavi Same as before (I guess AulaWiki does that; see it working on Aulawiki for tiki 1.8.x on http://www.escire.com )
Graphic Annotation Users can annotate parts of a graphic the way one can do so with Fotonoter in MediaWiki. Enabling discussion on the features, problems, improvement, etc. of certain graphical elements. clappingtree, xavi xavi: Looks nice. I haven't used any graphical feature on tiki for production in the classrom yet. But looks nice. clappingtree: Have added link to Fotonoter. Try it out. Have emailed Greg Elin. He's keen. Don't know about TikiWiki sys guys.
Individual assessment Editors (and above) can view all contributions by individual users. For example, Wiki Assessment feature in Blackboard Building Block Assessing quantity and quality of work done by individual students. clappingtree, xavi Yes, many other people are behind that issue for months. Sylvie is coding it for the UniWiki project. See more information at: User Category Logs, plus offical documentation at doc.tw.o/Action+Log.
Group assessment Editors (and above) can view all contributions by groups. Assessing the work done by groups. clappingtree, xavi Hopefully User Category Logs will enable this also (maybe in a later stage).
Plagiarism Check Editors (and above) click a button to check level of plagiarism in the content of each page. Reducing plagiarism. clappingtree, xavi xavi: I wonder how would this be achieved... clappingtree: Me too. lol I'm using Blackboard at work. There's a link to Turnitin which checks for plagiarism. But this would cost money.
Who wrote what The ability to see who wrote what section / line/ paragraph of a wiki page, in a similar way, at least, as Bonsai works for CVS Blame Assessing the contributions to a single wiki page or wiki structure (paper, etc.). xavi, clappingtree See an example
ePortfolio A kind of "folder/contanier" where the learning evidences of a student are gathered together by him/herself It allows other ways of promoting learning, and also of grading students progress. xavi, jreyes See links and more info at ePortfolio and Dev. Forum thread. Also see: CarpeTiki project
Types of Student Contributions A system to categorize the type of student contributions in forums, wiki edits, and blogs It help teachers to better evaluate the contributions from students xavi See links and more info at Types of Student Contributions and Dev. Forum thread. Also see: AWikiForum project
