Abstract

This paper discusses some of the errors of judgment made in attempts by the authors to introduce blogs and wikis into teaching environments. It highlights the process of attempting to develop spaces for intersubjectivity to develop through technology-enhanced environments. The underlying aim of all the cases was to introduce new technologies. Lessons learnt include the need for structuring assessment processes and that the technologies can support group work and potentially collaborative assessment.
