When most people think of wikis, the first -- and usually the only
-- thing that comes to mind is Wikipedia. The editors of Wiki
Writing: Collaborative Learning in the College Classroom, Robert E.
Cummings and Matt Barton, have assembled a collection of essays
that challenges this common misconception, providing an engaging
and helpful array of perspectives on the many pressing theoretical
and practical issues that wikis raise. Written in an engaging and
accessible manner that will appeal to specialists and novices
alike, Wiki Writing draws on a wealth of practical classroom
experiences with wikis to offer a series of richly detailed and
concrete suggestions to help educators realize the potential of
these new writing environments.
"Wiki Writing will quickly become the standard resource for using wikis in the classroom."
—Jim Kalmbach, Illinois State University
