The purpose of this study is to investigate undergraduate students’ experience on working collaboratively on a group project in wiki environment for a distance education course given blended. To do this, a mixed method research design, a quantitative methodology (online survey) in conjunction with qualitative methodology (msn interviews) was used. In a 6 week summer course, 52 students from different departments participated to this undergraduate course. Results showed that wiki is an effective tool for working collaboratively on a group project. Majority of the students (72%) thought that the wiki worked well as a tool to collect and organize information for the assignment, and 65% also thought it worked well as a tool to completing group project. However, 30% of students were neutral about whether wiki encouraged better participation on project.
