Here’s the presentation from our lunchtime workshop (19 June 2006).
Session outline: Recent technologies, such as weblogs and wikis offer new possibilities for online collaboration and communication. A weblog is a webpage containing entries on a topic provided by an individual or group of writers. Weblog readers are then able to comment on these entries. A Wiki is a website of editable web pages, enabling users to collectively write documents and link them together. Weblogs and Wikis are quick and easy to use and don’t require technical knowledge. This session will explore the potential of these tools in teaching and learning. It will look at examples of weblogs and wikis in use and provide opportunities for hands-on activities and discussion.
