Choosing a Wiki Platform for Student Projects--Lessons Learned
Malaga, Ross A.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v3 n2 p49-54 Feb 2010
Wikis offer many benefits, such as two-way flows of information, early and consistent feedback, and greater student group collaboration, in an educational setting. Some researchers have already reported on the use of Wikis in their classes. However, instructors must choose an appropriate Wiki platform in order to receive all of the benefits of their use. Failure to do so can lead to significant frustration on the part of both students and the instructor. Using a framework put forth by Schwartz et. al. (2004), this paper reports on the use of various Wiki platforms in an introductory information systems class. Lessons learned from this experience are discussed.
