Research Area
The research is concerned with wikis, knowledge resources developed with and accessible through web browsers. Wikis can be defined as “the software [that] enables people both to read and edit the content of the site, while the site that readers see has been produced by multiple authors interacting with the software” (Klobas, 2006, p. 20). The research draws upon social constructivist theory (Vygotsky, 1978) to integrate two fields of study, namely; computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) (Koschmann, 1994) and knowledge sharing (Banerjee, Bolloju, & Ma, 2004). It investigates the ability of wikis to support collaborative learning and knowledge sharing in the school setting.
