Abstract

Wikis have been promoted as collaborative writing tools that enable students to create a topic-related content using wiki technology. The content is developed collaboratively through students’ contributions to the wiki. A data log of the wiki tracks all contributions in form of actions that can be analysed using a taxonomy of category actions. The main goal of this paper is to analyse students’ collaborative writing activities in teacher education. The key findings, positive and negative effects of wikis on collaborative writing are discussed. Recommendations to enhance the quality of collaborative writing and possible trends for the near future are also envisaged.
