I have just finished creating an assignment (5days) that is all kept in a wiki. I decided to a lesson on how the Greek and Etruscans influenced Rome. The link to the wiki is http://domboskisworld.wikispaces.com/Lesson+Overview.
I really like the idea of keeping everything all in one location for students and it being available at home or at school. I think a quick lesson on how to use a wiki would help student be able to figure out how to navigate through the wiki. It is also nice because there is a feature to comment right on the wiki page as well but I did not utilize it. I find it to be not very intuitive so I had my students also collaborating on Edmodo. I’m a little concerned that using both tools will become confusing but I know my students are use to collaborating on Edmodo, so I wanted to keep up that consistency. It is easy to make links to files, images, websites and pages within the wiki itself.
One thing that I couldn’t figure out how to do is how to put pages under other pages. If this is not possible then I would have to create a brand new wiki for each project I wanted to do like this. I could see that becoming a little bit of a hassle. Overall I thought the idea of creating an assignment that is encapsulated in a wiki is a great way to keep students organized with an online project.
