> As a previous member of the cct205 wiki space, I have already experienced the wiki environment and its many intricacies. This time around, however, I had a better idea of what should go into the wiki space to make it more efficient in order for fellow students, who may never have used a wiki before, to navigate quickly easily. It can be intimidating at first, since anyone can edit practically everything in the space, but once the basic rules and "netiquette" have been established it becomes a very welcoming environment.

  • Wiki provided students a great opportunity to interact and colloberate ideas, all within the boundries of an educational experience. The Wiki served as a great referencing tool for course information, along with all surrounding information in general. This space evoked thought, and sparked creativity among peers. Peers were encouraged to post ideas, and expand on others already posted. This all played part in the enjoyable learning experience of the project. Lastly, the site served as a great source for clarificaton of information, while also leaving room

    Even with a condensed semester and far less people, I feel this wiki space accomplished a great deal. Its amazing to see an entire courses worth of knowledge crammed this small wiki space. I think I can say that this years wiki is better than the cct205 wiki space, simply because this time we had a few students who had experience with it, which resulted in the creation a firm foundation for the information rather quickly. This coupled with the fact that our Web CT page was "out of order," the cct300 wiki space was a complete success. I strongly suggest its inclusiuon into future courses, as it is a very valuable communication tool for students and professors alike.

    Overall I liked the experience of wikispace as it is very interactive, lots of control over it. With the contribution of every (or most) students in class, I was amazed by the amount of information posted. It allows us to learn new stuff that we might have not known before such as the background information of CNN’s “CrossFire”; which I didn’t know much before until I saw it in class and read about it here on wikispace. In addition, the problem with Webct had actually turned out to be a good thing for us(students); with lecture notes, assignment outlines, announcements or even files posted on wiki, it just make our life so much easier and now I fully agree with my friend PETER that Webct is inconvenient and it’s a nono…(alrite I owe him lunch). Anyways this posting assignment was meaningful, learnt a lot from it and most importantly its FUN
