Volume 11, Number 1, Spring 2012, Retrieved from http://www.ncolr.org/jiol/issues/pdf/11.1.3.pdf . Tips in using the wiki for projects: Search online or ask colleagues for two or three wiki resources. Investigate functionality based on your team’s needs (e.g., privacy settings, storage space, costs, ease of use). Explore the user guides and the tutorials offered by each wiki resource. You will want to ensure each collaborator understands how to access and use the wiki (e.g., creating links, uploading files). Discuss with your collaborators how you will utilize the wiki. This will help inform the process of designing your wiki. For example, on the “home” page of our wiki, we had links to other pages in our wiki that helped to inform our process – such as pages for our meeting notes and for each book chapter. Understand and use the wiki settings, especially the privacy and permission settings. In managing a writing project or any other type the wiki is a viable tool in the process and collaboration with your peers.

This study shows the wiki can provides a school-home connection and make the connection stronger and easier to maintain. The study also suggested that children using the wiki have increased motivation. Using the wiki can have a positive impact in the classroom if taken the time to properly use and teach it. “A Learning Journey for All”: American Elementary Teachers’ Use of Classroom Wikis

Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, Volume XIII, Number III, Fall 2010 Retrieved from http://www.westga.edu/~distance/ojdla/Fall133/huett133.pdf Wikis promote relationships and associations that organize people, activities, and ideas in ways that are “frequently unattainable in command-and-control management settings” (Staley, 2009, p. 37). Wikis allow for multiple users to collaborate, discuss, revise, and make otherwise meaningful associations. Wikis also carry with them the added bonus of being a type of informal memory for the program. Meaning that they allow for a “central repository for information that formerly was shared only in an ad hoc way through email or face-to-face encounters” ( Cortese , 2003, p.2). In order for wikis to be fully used effectively they must be well planned. The Way of the Wiki: Using a Wiki as a Management Tool for Online Programs
