Wikis allow multiple users to edit the same web page while tracking individual contributions. Their inherent simplicity gives users direct access to their content, which is crucial in group editing or other collaborative activities. But how can you use wikis to effectively provide collaborative opportunities in the classroom and elsewhere on campus? How do wikis compare with other collaboration applications? This session will take a look at the use of wikis in online courses and discuss other effective uses.
