Whither our Wiki? PROCEEDINGS

At the 2007 conference we presented on how the Wiki that we designed for our pre-service teacher education candidates had grown and was being used by our student teachers and recent graduates. This year's presentation will focus on the growth, death and rebirth of the JMU MSME Wiki. The Wiki was 'spammed to death' in the spring of 2007, despite being password protected. The Wiki was rebuilt and is continuing to grow. We will present updated figures on its use and new challenges that are facing us now that the amount of content on the Wiki is becoming significant.
