Wikis

Wikis are a social writing and web authoring tool. This wiki tool we use here at UMass Dartmouth offers a simplified webpage editor that does not require authors to understand website coding and is designed specifically for education.

Some common uses for wikis in education are:

  • Producing media rich versions of traditional poster boards and research papers.
  • Creating a central online location for groups of students to work on projects.
  • Sharing projects and information publicly with people outside of UMass Dartmouth.
  • Allowing students to build online ePortfolios that showcase their work.
