[edit] Abstract

User generated content is having an ever-increasing influence and presence on the Internet. Wiki communities, in particular Wikipedia, have gained wide spread attention and criticism. This research explores criticisms and strengths of wiki communities, and methods to reconcile the two. This research tests wiki software in an educational setting to determine indicators of article quality. The results give insight into the use of wiki systems in educational settings, suggest possible methods of improving the validity of content created within wiki communities, and provide groundwork for further research in the area.
