Last spring I gave the students a questionnaire to get feedback on their experience with the wiki assignment.  Here are the results.

Frequent comments:

  • liked being able to work on multiple topics, not just one
  • workload was distributed (over 4 contributions)
  • learned cool stuff not covered in class
  • some discomfort editing other’s work (worried about they might think)
  • gained insight into writing and editing
  • writing levels varied greatly, and this was challenging
  • appreciated the latitude of allowing article to “go in a new direction”
  • “generally value > challenges”

So there was tons of positive feedback.  And I know I need to provide more support regarding the concept of “editing / improving” a classmate’s article as well as technical support with adding media.
