Working The Wiki Way

If you have never used a Wiki before, be prepared for a bit of Culture Shock. The beauty of Wiki is in the freedom, simplicity and collaborative power that it offers to our Educational Research and Planning Work Groups.

For those not familiar with a Wiki, here is a brief explanation. "Wiki" (wiːkiː) is a Hawaiian word meaning “fast”. All Wiki content is a Work in Progress. The Wiki pages change as people come and go and can be edited “on the fly”. Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.

The purpose of this Wiki is to provide you with a portal where you can access reports, proposals, tutorials, information, links, and share your own thoughts, ideas, resumes, images and experiences. Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing any of us to create and edit our own pages, and edit within the journals in this Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic development, while promoting collaborative content composition.

This Wiki's primary focus is on various ePortfolio issues. Most of all, this is our forum where we share ideas! Much of the information here is subjective. Please read widely on this Wiki before adding new pages. This helps to reduce unnecessary clutter.
