    “The next time you read a health-related article on Wikipedia, it might have been improved through a new collaboration between the National Institutes of Health and the Wikimedia Foundation.”
  • How Physiopedia Was Born
  • Some Background Info:
    • Tech Savvy
    • 22/32 use laptops for notes
    • 2 have their own blog
    • ~50% read other blogs
    • Technology Frustrations
    • General unrest about our web homes for courses
    • “Clunky”
    • “Slow”
    • “Ugly”
    • Intensive Format
    • Ortho II is a 3 credit hr course delivered in 3 weeks!
    MCG DPT Class of 2010
  • Peeps are yummy, but this list of links is not very appetizing!
  • Survey Results
    Dr. Robertson should continue to use a wiki for this course.
    100% Agreed!
  • Survey Results
    The use of instructional technology (blog, wiki, etc.) in this course enhanced my learning.
    97% Agreed!
  • 11,500 page views in
    3 weeks!
  • Utility for Others?
    • Learning Curve
    • Public vs. Private site
    • It’s free, but could be enhanced by institutional support for software
    • Time investment
    • Many ways to use a wiki!
  • Spending countless hours making a wiki site for spine course.

    recommend the project
    to future students

    other disorders from
    classmates presentations
  • I really enjoyed working on this project. I feel that it allowed me a chance to do something that can be seen by many people to come.
    Thought this project was an opportunity for us to become more familiar with web-based resources and more importantly contribute to them.
    I really enjoyed the process and think it's very neat, that my classmates and I have something useful and public.
    I was very intimidated at first because I'm not always the best with computers. However, it was relatively simple and the tutorials really helped.
    I felt it was a great experience for learning how to contribute to our profession in a very accessible way.
