Wiki in the classroom

I stumbled on this example of someone using a wiki in her Brit Lit class. I'm not in love with the interface, but I think the idea of listing relevant topics and having students write pieces about them creates a cool repository of material for the class.

I saw this too (linked from The Long Eighteenth blog maybe?) and agree that the topics page is really useful both to students in class and potentially others studying the period as well.

Nice find. I think that this works well as a research project that could run throughout the class. Then the students could perhaps write their final paper that connected their wiki topic to a piece of literature.

This is the sort of thing that I would like to use a wiki for in a more advanced lit class.
