Wikis in the classroom

Most new courses, classes, or training programs have a significant flaw: the repetition of everything that has already been done, without retaining the value of the learning experiences of others. Clarence Fisher expresses this well – Wikis in the classroom: “…the most valuable things about wikis. They allow students to see what their peers have done over the past years as part of the mandated curriculum. Students make connections with students from the past and also build on their knowledge, seeing each other as legitimate sources of information and learning.”

    It would seem to me for this to work, though, there would need to be some sort of permanent record for each class, thus a different wiki for each class. Or is there another way?
