What is a Wiki?
A Wiki is a collaborative space where students and teaching staff can add and edit content. Content can include links to resources such as multimedia as well as text. Users can create multiple pages inside a wiki that are easily navigated.
Why would I use a Wiki?
A Wiki is most often used as an area in which students can work collaboratively on a course project.
Wikis can be setup for a whole course or a group of students.
Other tools you should consider as well as a wiki are:
Discussion Board: A discussion board should be used for short-question-and-answer-style collaboration between students.
Blogs and Journals: Blogs and Journals are a collaborative tool that can create greater interaction between you and your students. A journal entry can include links to resources, multimedia as well as text, unlike a blog, journals can only be viewed and commented on by teaching staff, not by other students in the course. Blogs can be viewed and commented on by other course members.
