Abstract

A Wiki is a web-based tool that allows people to contribute, edit, and read content on a particular subject. Wikis are commonly used as repositories of information and technical notes in fields such as software applications development. This paper describes one professors experience using a free Wiki as a collaboration tool in an undergraduate course in project design and planning. In the past, students in this course worked together to produce a highly detailed project specification in printed format that was then used to create a significant project in a succeeding course. The Wiki was used to not only replace the printed document, but as a tool to gather ideas, make decisions, and capture knowledge.
