Wiki Projects

Share with the class three collaborative wiki projects that you would like your students or employees to work on, if you were a classroom or corporate instructor. The three wiki projects should reflect three primary types: knowledge construction, critical thinking, and contextual application.   For each wiki project, define and discuss the following:

  • Who your learners are (class level, group size, etc.)
  • What the wiki is about
  • Which specific wiki type such as historical time line, summary, and team challenge
  • What skills and knowledge the students will learn from participating in the wiki
  • What challenges you may face.

Be sure to note which wiki project, out of three, you will choose to develop as your own wiki assignment later.

Avoiding Wikis Pitfalls

From your readings, it is apparent that wikis hold great promise for online learning and collaboration, among various web 2.0 tools. Yet, many pitfalls exist. Please discuss these pitfalls and explore how they may be avoided through careful planning, intentional design, structured processes, and effective facilitation in developing a collaborative learning environment using wikis. Please respond to at least two of your peers with useful feedback.

Discuss the features of a database VIEW.  Specifically, address the following:

1.       What is a VIEW and what are its uses?

2.       Does a view occupy space in the database? In other words, does a view contain any data?

3.       When we execute a SELECT statement on a view, where does the data come from?

4.       When we execute an INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE on a view, what data gets affected?

5.       If we drop a view, what happens to its base tables?
