|Mediawikis for research, teaching and learning||Daniel K. Schneider
|World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications||English||2011||This paper describes the design of various scenarios implemented with Mediawiki software. After discussing four case studies, we present and discuss pedagogical and technical design guidelines. This contribution is part of a long-term research and development program to design, implement and evaluate the use of ICT to support integrated scenarios for research, teaching and learning. We argue that properly configured Mediawikis are suitable tools if content production and knowledge integration are at center stage.||2||0|
|Edutech Wiki - an all-in-one solution to support whole scholarship?||Daniel K. Schneider||World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications||English||2008||One of the greatest challenges to educational technologists is to apply our research to ourselves, e.g. use technology to enhance our own intellectual development, as well as the way we teach and interact with others. There are many explanations why technology is underused. One is the uncomfortable relationship between research and teaching. Boyer distinguishes between scholarship of discovery, integration, application and teaching. Only the first one (research) is relevant in terms of career planning. It is a bad strategy to invest in time-consuming technology-enhanced pedagogies, in collective knowledge building or in application activities. However, most academics still might agree that these would be “nice to have”. Edutech Wiki (http://edutechwiki.unige.ch/en/) is an attempt to lower the cost of engagement in Boyer’s “lesser” scholarships though using the same medium for multiple purposes. We will report on some outcomes, some of which can be considered good practice.||0||0|
|SmallWiki - A Meta-Described Collaborative Content Management System||Stephane Ducasse
Design and Implementation
|WikiSym||English||2005||Wikis are often implemented using string-based approaches to parse and generate their pages. While such approaches work well for simple wikis, they hamper the customization and adaptability of wikis to the variety of end-users when more sophisticated needs are required (i.e., different output formats, user-interfaces, wiki management, security policies, ...). In this paper we present SmallWiki, the second version of a fully object-oriented implementation of a wiki. SmallWiki is implemented with objects from the top to the bottom and it can be customized easily to accommodate new needs. In addition, SmallWiki is based on a powerful meta-description called Magritte that allows one to create user-interface elements declaratively.||1||0|
