  7. 7. <ul><li>&quot;It seems clear to me now that you cannot just change the tool — you need to look at your practice as well. Being so open, a wiki does not have any inherent properties that will instantly make a knowledge-building community. It depends not only on the software configuration — for example whether certain areas are locked or whether you make templates for layout — but also on the social norms and practices around the wiki. In a classroom setting, this means the practice of the teacher, and the interactions of the students. &quot; David Smith </li></ul>[email_address]
