“Open editing" has profound effects on Wiki usage. It allows users to create and edit any page in a Web site and it encourages democratic use of the Web by nontechnical users.
Here’s how it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dnL00TdmLY
Prime elements of a wiki should include:
NOT AS GOOD
PDF files (assignments, readings, etc.)
Clip art and gifs. (thematic or seasonal)
Imbedding video/audio files (don’t forget copy - right laws!)
Remembering to keep the wiki up-to-date
Some have more time (or will power) than others:
I’ll have a chocolate bar for each staff with a wiki by the end of next week!
Good luck with your wiki!
