  14. 14. U of S Students Say <ul><li>Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies I had never been assigned such a unique and challenging project.  It was unique in that I had never used or even heard of a “Wiki.” </li></ul><ul><li>It definitely inspired me to consider the future uses of such technology in my own work or future projects that require a lot of collaboration. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Wiki Limitations <ul><li>New technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wikis are new to you as a faculty member and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>new to the university as a whole. Policies and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>support systems are still being developed. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Web-based writing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Content created on wikis and copied to a word </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>document lose their formatting. This may be an </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>important consideration when preparing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>collaborative articles for publication. </li></ul></ul>
