Why a Wiki?
What is important is that everyone contributes to the wiki. There are many ways to contribute. Below are a few suggestions:
- Post content
- Organize/restructure content
- Suggest content that is needed
Wikis are an example of viral content. To quote from wikipatterns.com
- One of the most useful attributes of introducing a wiki into an organization is its viral nature. Once a few people begin to use the wiki, they often realize that they could be even more efficient if only their colleagues were using the wiki too. Soon, wiki accounts are spreading exponentially.
What this means is that the more you use and contribute to the wiki, the better a resource it will be.
ED Web 2.0 Activity
- Using your GGC user ID and password, you will edit wiki pages by adding your reviews of the Web 2.0 applications assigned to your group.(wiki.ggc.usg.edu)
- Go to your group's section. The assignment of students to groups is made in class.
- Select the “edit” tab displayed on the right.
- Notice your group page has been divided into major sections. COMPLETE and POST TWO REVIEWS with at least five sections in your wiki pages, as shown in the sample review (Major section headings begin and end with ==). For example, Group 1 would have topics related to: Bubbl.us, Digitalvaults, Delicious, StudyBlue, Scripto and Refseek. Check with your group members to pick websites to review.
- Insert the site's logo into your review to enliven the page.
- Please do not display personal information on this site.
- Replace three or more terms with a link to an external Web site. Here’s an example from my bio displayed on the course wiki page, in which I link to Georgia State University: Georgia State University
- At the bottom of your page, add a link back to your section’s ITEC 2130 page by adding the following line below:

There are some privacy concerns in using Wikipedia. One is the right of a private citizen to remain private: to remain a "private citizen" rather than a "public figure" in the eyes of the law. It is a battle between the right to be anonymous in cyberspace and the right to be anonymous in real life. A particular problem occurs in the case of an individual who is relatively unimportant and for whom there exists a Wikipedia page against her or his wishes. (quoted from Wikipedia.com)
