[edit] Abstract

Social software, particularly Wiki, is providing new opportunities for computer-based collaborative learning by supporting more flexible sharing, communication, co-writing, collaborative knowledge building and learning community building. This paper presents a case study on how to scaffold wiki-based collaborative knowledge building in a tertiary education environment, which is expected to be a useful exploration of pedagogy with wikis. The paper proposes a theoretical scaffolding framework for wiki-based collaborative knowledge building, in which cognitive process, motivation and skills are concerned as the backbone of scaffolding design. Then, implementation results of this framework in a bachelor degree course are reported in the paper. Results of the implementation were positive. As predicted, both participation rate and quality of social construction were improved. The paper concludes with a discussion and reflection on issues relevant to implementation of scaffolding framework, including designing scaffolding strategies, the role of instructors, improvement of wiki systems and further researches.
