About the Book
"Wiki Writing will quickly become the standard resource for using wikis in the classroom." / Jim Kalmbach, Illinois State University
When most people think of wikis, the first---and often the only---thing that comes to mind is Wikipedia. Robert E. Cummings and Matt Barton, the editors of Wiki Writing: Collaborative Learning in the College Classroom, have assembled a collection of essays which challenges this common misconception, providing an engaging and helpful array of perspectives on the many pressing theoretical and practical issues that wikis raise. Written in an accessible manner that will appeal to specialists and novices alike, Wiki Writing draws on a wealth of practical experiences to offer a series of detailed suggestions about how educators can realize the potential of these new writing environments.
