Wiki Use That Increases Communication and Collaboration Motivation: A Reflection Several Semesters Later
Davidson, Robyn
Journal of Learning Design, v8 n3 p92-105 2015
The article "Wiki use that increases communication and collaboration motivation" (Davidson, 2012) appeared in the "Journal of Learning Design," Volume 5, Issue 2 in 2012. Three years on, Robyn Davidson reflects upon her original article. This article gave an account of how wikis were used as a platform to provide an opportunity for students to work on group projects without such barriers as communication and collaboration issues that arise from traditional group work. The original motivation to write the article was to share an innovative teaching experience so that others may be encouraged to try using wikis in the classroom to facilitate group work. It is pleasing to note the surprising number of downloads the paper received. The author expects it has generated interest in those wanting to see how technology is being used and those considering adopting similar ideas for themselves. In this article, the author reflects on her 2012 work. The article as it appeared in 2012 is also presented. With the author's approval, minor edits have been made, the referencing updated to APA 6.0 and the numbering of figures altered to reflect the new publication.
