The world of wikis

I have just come across a very useful article on how 'non-profit' organisations are using wikis.

As many of you will know I have been using wikispaces for many years to assist with online classes and as a communication channel for assessor networks.

It is surprising that even though they have been around for a while there are still a lot of people out there who are not sure how to use them or even see a use for them. This article gives the reader an insight into several different organisations and how they are using Wikis to promote collaboration, comnunication and sharing in their organisations. I encourage you to go and have a look at each site and report back via this blog your comments.

I would also like to start a discussion here to provide some tips to our readers on 'how to use wikis to promote collaboration in the classroom and online classroom'. Another important aspect is 'how can you use a wiki with students where the student generates the majority of the content, not the teacher?'.

Don't be passive, let's get this conversation happening.
