  9. 9. WIKIS WORK CREATING OUR OWN TEXTBOOK the students were able to build a resource library that accurately described and included visual examples the key concepts we were studying in class. INFORMATION was taken from articles about art found on the web and link referenced on each page. IMAGES were taken sources like Google Images, Flickr, and shot or created by students themselves. INCLUDED each week in class was a presentation by one of the groups about their newest article. INSTRUCTOR was able to use wiki as a catalyst for discussion about the article. Was it right? What needed changed? What would a better example look like?
