Course grade book

As a wiki owner, a teacher can restrict editing of certain pages. This opens a wide range of opportunities for a teacher, including using a wiki page to record student grades. The grades will be available to the group at all times, providing a more transparent learning process.

Teachers need to restrict editing of the grade book to prevent students from cheating and changing marks in the grade book. Although one can easily trace any changes made to a page, and recover previous versions of a page, this still requires a little effort and time, and should be systematically avoided by restricting editing of critical pages.
