Using a wiki for a course delivery system is examined in a number of ways: description of organization and usability, method of development, and advantages/disadvantages. A wiki was used to move a graduate-level Introduction to Educational Technology course from "old school learning" format to a "lifelong learning, learning 2.0" experience. Among the advantages of the wiki-delivered course are ease of construction, collaborative environment, immediacy, multi-media friendly format, accessibility, plug-ins and inline frames functionality, flexible pedagogy, modeling, customizability, and local hosting. Disadvantages discovered so far are few; however, questions regarding the design and use are emerging as development of this format for course management continues.
