- When teaching students, two complementary knowledge systems interact:
- that of the teacher, and
- that of the student.
- The overall direction of a student’s learning is designed by a teacher (or learning designer), and usually includes the content that the student is to learn and activities for the student to do. Within a group of students, however, some may possess knowledge that could make an important contribution to the content being studied.
- The ability to allow a student to interact with content is seen as a cornerstone of a teacher-focused information and knowledge system.
- In the virtualMe framework a customised solution was developed and student knowledge captured through annotating the content in a way that maintained the context of the student’s contribution.
- Advances in wiki technology have made their application in education more popular, and have the potential to create online environments which both support social activities and interactions and promote collaborative learning activities (Choy & Ng, 2007; Wheeler, Yeomans, & Wheeler, 2008; Lin, Sajjapanroj, & Bonk, 2009).
Existing wiki systems
- Open collaboration:
- Centred on a person (educator)
- Wikispaces (http://www.wikispaces.com)
- Inside an LMS
