displays just a bit off center or that dragging an embedded icon shifts the formatting. However, wiki editing tools are gradually improving and becoming more sophisticated. Students will need an opportunity to practice working in the wiki during a class


session. Groups should discuss methods for collaboration. Students may wish to write fully collaboratively or to divide sections of each page. If students divide tasks (for example, one student completes the class summary, one the definitions, one the examples, one the artifacts) they may wish to vary who takes which role for subsequent class sessions. If groups divide tasks, they can still use the wiki to edit and revise their group member’s contributions. It is a good idea to be mindful of the following tips for working with wikis.


 Students can be invited by a faculty member to join a wiki or they can make a wiki of their own. It is a good idea to determine the process for wiki account creation and joining before assigning the project.


 Both faculty and students will need opportunity to practice with the technology before completing the assignment.


 Avoid copying and pasting when possible, as formatting often does not ―stick‖. The best advice is to format the page after the writing is complete rather than before. Often, students who author a nicely formatted page in Word feel frustrated when their text does not copy exactly into the wiki. For students who are more comfortable writing first in a personal document, then pasting into the wiki, they should be advised to save their text as a Rich Text File (.rtf) and to avoid and major formatting.


 Use general file extensions (.doc, .rtf, .pdf, etc.) to upload and share files within the wiki. Only audio files saved as .wav or .mp3 will reliably play in the wiki. Original videos should first be uploaded to a hosting site (like YouTube or TeacherTube or GoogleVideo). Once hosted, the video can be embedded into the wiki.


 Be mindful of audience. The wiki organizer can control who can view and edit the wiki. It is a good idea to make students aware when the wiki is permitted to be viewed by the general public.
