Wikis, again

Editing the Learning 2.0 @ EKU Sandbox page was obscenely easy. Look for my edits under Favorite TV Shows: Pushing Daisies and Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe.

Wikis can be started by just about anyone who has something to say. I guess I could start one on my dream of goats... But I won't. Wikis can be useful for people who want to collaborate on projects together, or for teachers who want to create a website of resources for a class. It could be a good exercise for students to contribute to a wiki. Website creation is not just a random slapping together of links and words--it is something whose purpose needs to be carefully thought out.
