I want to weigh in on this thread. The use I'm investigating for a wiki isn't to
use one directly in education, but to use one for the collaborative work that
SEUL/edu does, or could do. As such, this isn't so much about programmed learning
outcomes as it is about joint creativity. These are two very different goals, I
think. It looks to me as though a wiki could be very useful for the latter; I
haven't thought too much about the former (although I'm very sure Bruno has).
