5-D-1 Wikis in Classroom

This was my first exposure to wikis. I reviewed and read quite a few of them. The wiki that had the professor outline all of her course on it was incredible. Anyone in the world could have taken this course for free (not receive a grade of course). The Cool Cat wiki was also impressive.
I'm sure that the formatting and layout for the wiki will be most challenging for me. Also I learn better with new technology when I am face to face with another person. It is interesting to work with other's viewpoints and realize their perspective in a group project. From my additional research, it appears that Wikipedia accuracy rates fairly high. I've found myself using it alot to learn more about the terminology with wikis. I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the explanations. I would not hesitate to continue using it in the future.

Karen, don't let the "formating" stuff get in your way. The beautiful thing about wikis is that they really don't NEED to be fancy - they are perfect for us simple folk. :-D
