lThe wikis are an excellent
tool. Interactive, easy to use, and the final product is better than a group paper would
be with graphics and
internal links. Plus, busy group members can input on their own time, rather than trying to find a time and a
place to meet.
lMore than anything, the wiki's and discussion boards made me feel like it was possible to have a thriving
community of connected
students that persisted outside of the class. It helped me to identify students like me more easily, by way
of the quality of their
interactions facilitated by the tools provided.
lI would have liked to see a stronger set of tools for the wiki, perhaps even on a platform with some degree of
permanence so that all
that work wasn't lost to me upon completion of the course. I do see some downsides to this, but that
portion of the course was
very addictive for me.
