IL2006 Day 3: A Wiki as a Research Guide

Chad Boeninger:

Had a bunch of research guides:

  • redundancy of resources
  • no interlinking
  • multiple edits of the same content

why wiki?

  • easy to add content
  • more room for content and nuggets
  • organize by categories
  • searchable
  • huge potential for building community
  • They used wikimedia

They use wikis for instruction, for making guides for class. They’re easy to update
