Abstract

Graduate education in an online environment frequently means relying on a course management system (CMS) but also calls for additional interactive components. Courses in an online Master's in Family Studies incorporated wikis (Hawaiian word for “quick”) to support collaboration among students. Online collaboration can replicate the expected cooperative learning among graduate students in on-campus settings. To accomplish this, wiki technology was utilized for collaborative webpages.
