How would I create a Wiki for student use in Canvas?
You can create a content page and allow students to edit the page. See the Add Content section of the Guide How do I create a new page in a course?.
I agree with Shanae, create a content page and allow students to edit this. It can be quite effective. When I was using Canvas as a student, I had a couple of my professors create wikis this way and we were all able to contribute and find it easily.
But pages don't feed into speedgrader, so that would feedback and grading would need to be done as a separate function?
Just to complete the circle here... you can go into your course "Settings" screen (check out the section "View More Options" near the bottom of this Guide: How do I set details for a course?) to choose whether "Only Teachers", "Teachers and Students", or "Anyone" has the ability to edit pages. If you were to set this to "Teachers and Students", then when you are editing a Page in a course, you'll have the option to choose whether or not you want students to be able to edit it or not. So, you can really be selective in which pages of your course you want people to edit and which pages cannot be edited by students. I hope this helps!
