Alzahrani, Ibraheem; Woollard, John
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Conference on E-Learning & Knowledge Management Technology (2nd, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Apr 2012)
This paper examines the potential of wiki technology as an e-learning tool in Al-Baha University, Saudi Arabia with a random sample in two colleges: science and education. 24 male students participated in this survey. The data is collected through interviewer-administered questionnaires with 16 questions divided into four axes. The data is analysed to reveal the students' perceptions of using wiki technology in learning. The results indicate that, students prefer to learn collaboratively with positive perceptions of wiki. These results lead us to determine the possible potential of wiki technology as an e-learning tool for undergraduate students in similar contexts. (Contains 1 table.)
