 This public audience may both provide students with a more meaningful final product and incentive to self-monitor the quality of their work.


 The collaborative nature of wiki development can afford students the ability to contribute in multiple ways. For example, a strong writer can focus on polishing the final text for a particular page, while the more artistic students can contribute to the quality of the work through visual elements.


 Working collaboratively on a long-term project helps students to develop their organizational skills and provides them with valuable opportunities to learn to work effectively in a group.


 Online content building is a real world skill that will be required of many of our students upon graduation. Collaborative writing in a wiki provides practice for this skill, even for students who do not have a technical background.


 A tangible, public product can be gratifying for the students and be included in a portfolio of their academic work.


Application Wikis can facilitate group writing and collaboration (such as shared space for


posting research) as well as individual student performance (such as a personal portfolio). With the ability to embed videos, links, and other multimedia texts, wikis can provide a platform for media rich content building. Classroom uses for wikis can include  Coauthored projects and texts  Coauthored annotated bibliographies  Electronic portfolios  A shared space for research compilation  A working lab book  A collaboratively built and maintained accompaniment to course material


 A place to build a professional toolkit (that can be accessed even after the class is completed)
