As digital collaboration becomes more commonplace in Vanderbilt courses, you may want to think about adding a wiki to help support your course activities. Wikis are simple Web pages that allow multiple people edit and update documents without having to know HTML programming. This common Web space lets students work together on projects and allows you to supplement or comment on their work.
If

you have been considering a wiki for your course but are not sure how to get started with it, this session will help you consider what skills you may need to learn and how to set up you’re your own wiki. You will also learn helpful ideas and tips on making your wiki experience a success for you and your students.
