Wiki Workshop
What Is a Wiki, How Is It Different from a Blog, and Why Would I Use One in Class?

"A web page with an edit button."

That's one definition for a wiki. Many people are familiar with Wikipedia, which is the biggest and most famous wiki in the world. Still, most folks don't understand what a wiki really is. Perhaps that's because wikis are so open-ended and flexible. They can be so many different things.

We believe wikis have great potential for education, and this workshop aims to expand awareness and understanding of what wikis can do.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the basics of how to create, build, manage and edit a wiki. We will also examine an actual use scenario based on the experiences of a faculty member who is implementing a wiki class project this semester.
