In this 5 minute video, Alex reflects on:

  • The benefits of using wikis
  • How the wiki helped the international cohort
  • The difficulties of using wikis
  • Establishing a teachingfacilitation presence within the wikis for formative feedback
  • How the wikis helped to support the learning community
