Would you like to enable group collaboration in an easy-to-edit set of webpages?
A wiki is simply a website that allows individuals or groups of collaborators to rapidly add or change its content, using an editor in the web browser. Wikis can be a powerful asynchronous collaboration tool in teaching and learning. Typical uses include structuring group work, or capturing a knowledge repository that has been built up by a class.
For your convenience, this Teaching Element is also available as a downloadable pdf.
- Use the wiki to generate a knowledge base for your course/discipline. This could include reference material, a glossary of discipline-specific terms, a collection of links, or other resources. For an example of this, see the RIT Art History Resource Wiki.
- Have your students generate a course study guide wiki page as a learning activity.
- Include a peer critique of writing samples as a learning activity.
- Have students collaborate on group projects in a wiki (e.g., case studies, position papers, research projects, etc.)
- Develop a “Frequently Asked Questions,” or "tips & tricks" wiki page about your course.
- Coordinate oral presentations and capture presentation artifacts on the course wiki.
- Assign a "wiki scribe" each week to post lecture notes in the course wiki.
- Use the wiki to simulate real-world working methods, such as team project workspaces.
- Incorporate other tools into your wiki space, such as video, digital imaging, storytelling, etc.
