10 Wiki Strategies for Educators - Wiki Project:
"Just because you build a wiki, doesn’t mean they will come. This has been my and other faculty members’ experiences in using wikis in the classroom. We all know the feeling . . . the excitement of seeing and then using a type of software that should be just perfect to engage students and to enable community-building. We work during our break time to incorporate this learning technology in our course only to find out that students aren’t that excited about it. I think one of the reasons for the lackluster student enthusiasm toward any type of new technology tool is that they need to learn it. I’m not saying that students are lazy . . . it’s just that the internal question, “what’s in it for me?” probably needs to be answered."
