Wiki Technology as a Design Tool for a Capstone Design Course
Hadley, Kevin R.; Debelak, Kenneth A.
Chemical Engineering Education, v43 n3 p194-200 Sum 2009
Technology is a key component to the net generation's social, study, and professional skills. It is prudent to investigate the applications of new technology in education. In this study, a wiki was incorporated into a senior design course, and its utility was investigated with respect to process design. The results of the study indicate wikis improved organization and interaction between the groups and the class supervisors. Also, wikis potentially can contribute towards pedagogical research and learning assessment.
