There is increasing use of wikis and weblogs in formal educational contexts (Higdon, 2005). This study focused on documenting their impact on student approaches to learning. Students in an undergraduate education course used wikis to collaboratively summarize online discussion forum sessions and weblogs for self-reflection and peer review of course assignments. Survey and focus group results indicate students perceive that these digital tools can support deep approaches to learning only when the teaching approaches and assessment framework for a course are intentionally designed to promote peer collaboration and reflection.
