One major assignment in my university course was collaborating via a course wiki.
The site has turned out quite nicely, save a few problems with the overall organization, which is the issue I would like to address today.
First, one student took charge of the initial site organization and after a few changes, the main topics were established. Somewhere along the way, students started veering off course and there was no consistency. If I were to collaborate via wiki in the future, I would definitely assign one person to enforce page hierarchies, and categories. If the site is difficult to navigate, it’s pretty much useless to the community.
If you’ve ever collaborated via wiki, how did it turn out for you and your group or organization?
Let’s share ideas!
