Wiki writing, wiki readingAuthor

The Chronicle of Higher Education: Colloquy

Tech-savvy faculty members and students are starting to dabble in "wikis" -- Web sites that can be edited by anyone who visits them. Especially in creative-writing and literature courses, some professors argue, the communal Web sites promote a more casual, flexible form of class discussion than do blogs and message boards. And some enthusiasts say that the technology can actually change students' writing for the better, by encouraging them to swap ideas with their classmates and to revise their work continually. Have you or your students used a wiki? What are the advantages and disadvantages?
