I have to admit that was my first time contributing to a wiki… I struggled a bit with the formatting, but now I can add it to my list of another collaborative tool that I have actually tried.

Hi Erica,

I’m glad that you found the activity useful. Other wikis, I think, are a bit easier because they use the WYSIWYG format, such as PBwiki and Wikispaces.

This brings me to an interesting question: Why did UBC choose MediaWiki over the others, since the coding involved to format a page could potentially scare off people? Anyone know?

Hello Group 8:

This UBC wiki has a wealth of great collaborative sites. I will definitely explore them so that I can introduce one or more of them to my students, for educational and personal use.

I believe that students should be exposed to collaborative learning and collaborative sites.

Thanks for including this wiki activity.
