Using a Wiki as a Platform for Formative Evaluation

Sanghee Oh, Barbara Wildemuth, Jeffrey Pomerantz, Seungwon Yang and Edward Fox

(Submission #93)


This poster describes and discusses the process by which expert reviewers used a Wiki to provide evaluative comments on a set of educational modules developed by the Digital Library (DL) Curriculum Development project. A total of 32 experts from 23 universities in 6 countries provided comments on the 10 draft educational modules. The Wiki was an effective tool for the reviewers to identify and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the modules, to share their experiences of teaching DL courses, and to communicate with the project team. The Wiki played an important role as a fundamental venue for building the DL community, based on these collaborative activities.
