Week 8 – Journal 1 Wiki

18 Oct

I was introduced to Wiki last two semesters in one of my elective courses.  Wiki was used as a collaboration tool in the course and I thought this was a great idea for teachers to make learning materials available to their students.  Creating a Wiki account is easy and there are more benefits – it’s free and anyone in the study group can participate in online collaboration.  Before I got to use Wiki, I had to get a special permission from my course instructor because she was the administrator of the Wiki site that we were working on.  Once approved, students got to share their ideas on the site.  Anyone student in the group can make ammendments to the documents but there is a specific guidelines set by the instructor the students must follow.  Overall, it was a good learning experience.

This week I get to create my own Wiki account and share something on the site.  I have a feeling this is going to be fun!  I will post something tomorrow.  Here are some benefits of Wiki:  http://www.clomedia.com/in-conclusion/jeanne-c-meister/2008/February/2064/index.php
