• Using Wikis In The Classroom

    Hello To Some Old Friends and Hopefully New Ones,

    What I propose is a discussion of the use of wikis as a CMS. After having previously used WordPress to create classroom blogs (example: eng101mwf.wordpress.com/), I use PBWORKS now to create wikis for each of my classes. Students are given logins, which allows them to edit each page. I use the wiki to store course assignments, copies of lectures, etc. During class discussions, I display the page for that day’s discussion, which is put together by my own notes and a “class leaders” notes. This also allows my classes to be almost completely paperless.

    Examples: eng101wwend.pbworks.com/eng102wwend.pbworks.com/
