Abstract

Research from the University of Central Florida shows that faculty and students had a positive overall experience using wikis as a collaborative tool for online classes. The wiki technology improves the ease of collaboration outside the classroom and increasingly engages students with content. Despite technical and logistical issues, faculty can implement wikis successfully with necessary orientation sessions and well-prepared assignment protocols.
