Columbia Wikispaces provides a wiki to every active registered course at Columbia University. A wiki is a collaborative tool that allows students to easily create, link, and modify one or more pages of course related materials. Wikis are collaborative in nature and facilitate community-building within a course.

Teaching with Wikispaces

Some common collaborative wiki projects include:

  • Collaboratively-authored creative pieces or reports.
  • Annotated bibliographies where students add summaries and critiques about course-related readings.
  • Manuals or glossaries of useful terms or concepts related to the course, or even a guide to a major course concept
  • Online repositories of course documents where instructors and students can post, comment or classify documents relevant to the course.
  • E-portfolios of student work.
