Teachers can use a wiki space when creating a project; students use the wiki space to post information and to share with the class.
Students can access the wiki space in and out of school.
Teachers can monitor participation of all members of the group by reviewing the history.
Links can be embedded into the wiki that directs students to look at other pages that their classmates have created.
