Abstract The use of online learning technology to sThe use of online learning technology to support classroom learning has gradually gained acceptance in the higher education community, augmenting and in some cases supplanting the traditional lecture delivery method. This paper presents a case study which details the experiences of the author in developing what began as a simple Wiki platform into a highly functional classroom management system. The Wiki was developed using open source software acquired in 2002 and then customized and reprogrammed by the author and used in various higher education classroom settings from 2004 to 2009. The Wiki provides a central repository for all class activity and allows both the instructor and the student to add content to the class web site.

The paper will first provide a historical perspective on the use of Wikis and other collaboration and knowledge aggregation software in the classroom, and then provide detail on the features and functions of the modified Wiki. Finally, analysis of student usage of the Wiki and the results of a student survey about the Wiki web site will be reviewed and discussed. This analysis provides additional insights on the use and effectiveness of the customized Wiki. and effectiveness of the customized Wiki.
