Using wikis for online group projects: Student and tutor perspectives

Abstract


This paper presents a study of the use of wikis to support online group projects in two courses at the UK Open University. The research aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a wiki in supporting (i) student collaboration and (ii) tutors’ marking of the students’ collaborative work. The paper uses the main factors previously identified by the technology acceptance model (TAM) as a starting point to examine and discuss the experiences of these two very different user groups: students and tutors. Data was gathered from students via a survey and from tutors via a range of methods. The findings suggest that, when used in tandem with an online forum, the wiki was a valuable tool for groups of students developing a shared resource. As previous studies using the TAM have shown, usefulness and ease of use were both important to students’ acceptance of the wiki. However, the use of a wiki in this context was less well-received by tutors, because it led to an increase in their workload in assessing the quality of students’ collaborative processes. It was possible to reduce the tutor workload by introducing a greater degree of structure in the students’ tasks. We conclude that when introducing collaborative technologies to support assessed group projects, the perceptions and needs of both students and tutors should be carefully considered.

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, October 23, 9:52 AM

A helpful infographic for those of us working on designing personalized learning experiences for young people. My only concern is that in my view personalized learning is primarily about student agency and ownership of learning outcomes and processes. In this model, student ownership is quite far down the list of considerations.

Good Evening!
I thought I would jump into the deep end of the pool and make a post about something that we were encouraged/inspired to do by our first foray into the IPN (as well as getting into our PCN reading, Leaders of Their Own Learning).  I kept hearing the concept of utilizing video as a self-assessment tool for improving instruction in the classroom.  As I drove home from Alexander City, I tried to wrap my head around how to accomplish this without putting another thing on the teachers'

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 8, 11:40 AM

Being connected has always been an imperative. Professional development needs to be relevant and by choice. Using digital technologies is one way to access the PD, but it is only one way. When we suggest otherwise, we fall into the traps of those who want things the way they always have been.

It depends on what we think helping is. Doing the homework and providing many of the solutions is not help. Asking questions and providing support in directing a child in their learning can be helpful.
