The Use of a Wiki as an Instructional Tool: A Qualitative Investigation
Aharony, Noa
Journal of Web Librarianship, v3 n1 p35-53 Jan 2009
The current research aims to explore and analyze the application and use of a wiki in a knowledge management academic course. The research will focus on the level of collaboration among students and on the kind of interaction that takes place during the learning process. The population of this study was composed of wiki pages gathered from a knowledge management wiki course in Israel. To understand the comments directed at each student on the wiki, a thorough content analysis was conducted. The results of the current research revealed the major part of the interaction on the wiki centered on content-related comments and contained both collaboration among the students and use of deep levels of cognition.
