Why this Wiki?

 

This is a test project for using a wiki as a collaborative learning tool. It's a high-tech variant of class participation/discussion where the course goal is to create documents that are created by everyone in the class. Don't worry--there's no way you can break anything. If you want, play for a while in the sandbox to see how you can create content.
