Wikis in the Classroom

On Thursday, October 27th OIT will deliver the second webinar focused on Collaborating in the Cloud. This month we will provide an overview and comparison of blogs and wikis. Both of these technologies provide valuable possibilities for enhancing teaching and learning. As with other cloud technologies they allow students and faculty to connect, communicate, collaborate and co-create knowledge. Blogs can be utilized as online journals while wikis are useful for group projects or repositories. The article "Wikis in the Classroom: Three Ways to Increase Student Collaboration" provides good ideas from one faculty member who has had success using wikis in his class. 

Please consider joining us for more discussions and information regarding blogs and wikis. Contact Dr. Carleen Shaffer to register at
