Educational wikis

This resource offers an introduction to the use of wikis in education. The Wikiversity community keeps track of education-oriented wikis, establishes constructive interactions with them, and researches their technology, activity, culture, processes, and impact. Constructive interactions is a sub-page for exploring interactions between education-oriented wikis and other projects involved in the development of learning resources.
