What in the world is a wiki and why would I want to use one? a wiki is a type of web page Wiki vs. blog a wiki allows for online collaborative creation.


a wiki is the name commonly given to any web site in which the users, or web surfers, can actually alter the web page while viewing it so that subsequent viewers are reading an entirely new page, or article. Users have the power to directly edit text, images, and links on a web site with a wiki.

How to wiki? : 

How to wiki? An easy start… In the old days, you would hand out index cards and ask for student contact info, their likes, strengths, etc., but now, I just use the 'New Page' link at the top of the wiki to create an individual page! Have students create a wikipage within the course wiki. This avoids editing collisions. This gets them to create their individual page It gives students early experience editing wiki pages and contributing to the wiki. I have a class list of everyone in the room, all in one shot!
