The story in fyi focuses on wikis, which are easily editable collaborative web spaces. The article points out the many pedagogical uses of wikis, as well as projects ITS has undertaken to deploy them in UI courses. The piece focuses on how wikis can fit in with other social networking strategies in instruction. ITS launched its wiki service about a year ago.

Check out the UI wiki service to learn more. In addition, the SITAs have developed – what else? – a wiki space with information on how this technology can be used. The SITA program also provides one-on-one training and support to instructors who would like to develop a wiki for course use. More information on the SITA Program is available at http://its.uiowa.edu/sita.
