A wiki can be an excellent tool to allow for online collaboration of students. They allow for anyone to make posts, comments and edit whether it is simultaneous or one at a time. But for the same reasons a wiki can be great it can also be a disaster if not closely monitored. Students are able to make changes to other individual’s comments or they can simply delete them if they wanted. This can be a huge problem. It would be best for educators to set firm ground rules to ensure that what students do on the wiki will be monitored and there will be consequences. I think the three most important rules to include would absolutely be:
1. Be as honest and accurate as possible,
2. Do not delete or edit peer posts,
3. Be kind and respectful.
