Wikis

  • In this session, Lynne will demonstrate how wikis have become an integral part of blended learning at Coonara Community House along with online classrooms and other web 2.0 tools. She will show examples of wikis being used as class websites, a wiki eportfolio, a tutor wiki and one used for committee. She will also touch on how the Discussion forums are being used as assessment tools as well as social chat forums and how easy it is to gather evidence this way. Come along and see what a wiki could do for your organisation!
