Get Tips on How to Use Wikis Effectively in the Classroom
Designing an Effective Collaborative Wiki Project
Creating collaborative projects for students has always been a challenge. But with today’s busy students it’s difficult just finding a time outside of class when they can all meet. It’s true of traditional students, and even more so for online learners who often are not only balancing more responsibilities, but are geographically dispersed as well.
How do you get students involved in collaborative projects when their schedules make face-to-face collaboration virtually impossible? The good news is there’s a technology-based solution – a simple, effective one that provides an excellent environment for collaboration. It’s easy to learn, is user-friendly, and it meets the needs of students and instructors. Plus, it’s free!
You can learn all about this powerful solution with a copy of the seminar Designing an Effective Collaborative Wiki Project.
During this presentation, Rhonda Ficek, Ph.D., Director of Instructional Technology Services at Minnesota State University Moorhead, shows you how wikis offer an ideal environment for student collaboration. You will learn:
- Elements of a successful instructional wiki project.

- How to create the all-important opening page.
