  2. 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?

  4. 4. <ul><li>As mentioned in the video and the previous diagram, wikis are great because they: </li></ul><ul><li>allow more than one person to edit each page. </li></ul><ul><li>allow many people to add to and edit the same content. </li></ul><ul><li>allow you to easily connect between pages inside the wiki. </li></ul><ul><li>However, when it comes to wikis vs. blogs, “better” depends on the project. </li></ul><ul><li>Other great wiki features: </li></ul><ul><li>expandable structure – you can add as many pages as you need. </li></ul><ul><li>not LINEAR - unlike blogs, you can jump around easily from page to page or section to section. </li></ul>WIKIS
  5. 5. <ul><li>More wiki features not mentioned in the video: </li></ul><ul><li>allow folders as well as pages - great for more complex projects with lots of sections. </li></ul><ul><li>store FILES – upload .doc, .xls, .ppt, .jpg, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>a great organizer for your entire academic portfolio . 1 folder=1 class </li></ul><ul><ul><li>pages for notes, assignments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>upload back-ups of your assignments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>link to online resources </li></ul></ul>Image from http://freshome.com WIKIS
