Using Wikipedia to Reenvision the Term Paper

Thanks to Gerry McKiernan for highlighting this presentation given by Andreas Brockhaus and Martha Groom on Tuesday, March 18, 2008 at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative 2008 Online Spring Focus.

Publishing for a large audience provided authentic feedback and encouraged students to do their best work. Using Wikipedia also allowed students to connect with a vibrant community and share their knowledge by making their papers publicly accessible." You can see the ppt (and, I think, the ppt with audio but I was doing this blog entry at a computer that had sound disabled ;-) at
