Wikis have the potential to be powerful collaborative learning tools as communities of learners come together to create knowledge and share information. Thirty-two language arts methods students collectively researched and added content to a class wiki. Data collection included online observations of the development of the wiki pages, students’ reflections posted in WebCT, email correspondence, researcher notes, students’ edits to the pages. Case study methodology was used to determine the impact of using a wiki in a language arts methods class. Results indicated that students delved deeply into the course content and made connections between course content and their personal experiences as they collaborated to create shared knowledge.
