  • 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:, 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.
