Back to wiki workshop


Here are links to some sample classroom wikis.

LOPP a few to get ideas:

  • Look

  • Overall organization

  • Pedogogical Reasons (likely) for this wiki

  • Possibilities for contribution and expansion.


HUGE collection of educational wikis on WikiSpaces. Wiki creators add the information about their wiki here:
http://educationalwikis.wikispaces.com/Examples+of+educational+wikis

The wikis below are active or archived. The ideas vary widely and can give you a taste of the diverse options. Try your own ideas or "hitchhike" on an idea you find here!

Wikis that have characteristics of a "hub" for the class are marked with *hub*. If you find others, feel free to copy/paste this designation and Edit this page to add it where appropriate.
