This presentation will discuss the results of a yearlong study on using social networking technology to facilitate collaborative research in undergraduate-level English courses. Students collaboratively constructed wikis that served as research guides and incorporated a wide range of primary and secondary source material. The project brought about many successes and raised issues about what we value in student writing and research, as well as what we hope to gain from employing these new and ever-changing technologies in humanities courses.
