Web 2.0 technologies, such as wikis, have enabled educators and students to become instant creators of shared online content. This video describes what wikis are and how they can be employed as educational tools at both the school and college level. Benefits of wikis are cited, and the use of wikis within academia and far beyond is covered, with examples ranging from student projects, classroom management, and teacher-to-teacher resource sharing to international cultural exchanges. The video also offers cautionary advice about reliance upon Wikipedia as a primary research source.
