Wikipedia

Not Your Father’s Encyclopedia
Quote: “Last week, the English-language version of Wikipedia, a free multilingual encyclopedia created entirely by volunteers on the Internet, published its 100,000th article. More than 37,000 articles populate the non-English editions.”
Comment: Wikis are the closest thing I’ve seen to true collaboration…and once again, it is a simple, effective tool. I currently have a zwiki in pilot stage, that will eventually be used as the basis for creating a college-wide FAQ for staff (zwiki runs on Zope…a big selling feature, as I’m currently working with Plone (also Zope-based) for content management). For instructors in particular: get to know wikis. They have incredible learning potential.
