Syllabus Defiled

Another reason to keep an eye on the weblogs. Bryan Alexander alerts me to a short case study I wrote about UBC’s use of wikis for Syllabus magazine. The piece is a fairly straight-ahead (and ruthlessly shortened) description of how some user communities here have taken the form and used it to serve their own purposes… To me that’s the remarkable part about this experiment — these groups didn’t need anyone to tell them what to do with the wiki space or how they should do it… they created their own structures and processes.

For those of you who are interested, an expanded (but far from complete) list of UBC applications.

Nothing would be more fun than to ramble on at length about this subject, further aggrandizing myself. Tragically, I am staring down an array of deadlines…
