Wikis

Tired of printing out study guides? Want to find a way to have your entire class have the ability to access a study guide without any hassle? Not only can your students access this information, but they can add information for the entire class to see. You can even make the students build these pages as projects or part of class participation. These pages are called Wikis. “Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser.” Wikis are websites that individuals who want to work in collaboration, but separately, can create. Once the page is created individuals can edit and add more information, which would make it very practical for study guides or the sharing of information.

You can find more information on the design and principles here. This site can be helpful in comprehending how to build the site. Also you can read about Wiki and its history and an article on why Wiki is user friendly and what are the plans for the future of this software.
