  • 2. Watch this short video about wikis. As you watch , think about these questions: How are wikis different from blogs? Which would be better for working together on a group project? Why?

    • As mentioned in the video and the previous diagram, wikis are great because they:
    • allow more than one person to edit each page.
    • allow many people to add to and edit the same content.
    • allow you to easily connect between pages inside the wiki.
    • However, when it comes to wikis vs. blogs, “better” depends on the project.
    • Other great wiki features:
    • expandable structure – you can add as many pages as you need.
    • not LINEAR - unlike blogs, you can jump around easily from page to page or section to section.

    • More wiki features not mentioned in the video:
    • allow folders as well as pages - great for more complex projects with lots of sections.
    • store FILES – upload .doc, .xls, .ppt, .jpg, etc.
    • a great organizer for your entire academic portfolio . 1 folder=1 class
      • pages for notes, assignments
      • upload back-ups of your assignments
      • link to online resources
