Wikis Simplified is designed to introduce educators to the collaborative Web 2.0 tool of wikis that can be used to enhance student learning by increasing student involvement and motivation. Participants learn about the various uses for wikis as well as how to develop and use wikis as teacher productivity tools. The final project gives them the opportunity to create two wikis with specific intentions utilizing a Web 2.0 tool: one will be designed with three pages for use with students and the other will be created for use with parents. Participants share ideas through discussion forums and then share their final projects with one another on a wiki for this course so they can learn from the creativity and efforts of their peers. Participants of all skill levels are encouraged to enroll, as the class is self-paced and those with more experience will not be “held back” by those who may need assistance. Participants who need assistance will find it provided.
This is an open class with ongoing registration. It is a 5 week self-paced class with easy access to the instructor via email who is more than happy to answer any questions. As soon as you register, Dr. Lambert will get you started!
