This page will contain examples of how MediaWiki can be used in Teaching and Learning. It is a companion to Extending for Teaching and Learning (Features Grid).

If you have examples please add them. If you are unsure how to add using wiki notation, post a comment (at the bottom). Unfortunately, due to spamming I have had to ask users to create a login to enter information into this wiki. If you really dont want to add a user id, could you email your suggestion (mverhaart at gmail )
