Abstract

Wikis are increasingly being used to facilitate sense of community and collaborative learning in higher education. Fourteen students’ sense of community as a result of using a wiki in a graduate education course was measured using the Classroom Community Scale (Rovai, 2002). Survey results indicated high scores in both the Connectedness (29.1) and Learning (32.5) subscales among participants as a result of using the wiki. The findings support the use of the wiki design used in this study as well as scaffolding for developing community and facilitating collaborative learning in educational environments.
