Prior research has highlighted the value of using wikis to support learning. This paper makes the case that the wiki has several properties that are particularly amenable for constructing applications that support the “collaborative” part of a variety and range of different time/different place student collaborations. In support of the argument, the paper presents the WikiDesignPlatform (WDP). The WDP supplies a suite of awareness, navigation, communication, transcription, and analysis… 
Mashing-up wikis and forums: a case study of collaborative problem-based activity
TLDR
An effort to undertake the merging and cooperation of wiki and threaded discussion technologies into a more sophisticated technology that better supports collaboration during problem-based activity in computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) settings is reported on.
Developing a framework to assess students' contributions during wiki construction
TLDR
A need for an assessment framework to evaluate the value of students' contributions and their interactions in wiki-based group work assignments and this framework was built from a review of the literature, drawing on relevant research for assessing group work.
Analysis of students’ participation patterns and learning presence in a wiki-based project
TLDR
The design framework of the wiki-based project is outlined and an analysis framework is proposed as the result of combining analysis of students’ collaborative actions, e.g. edits and posts in the wiki pages.
Wading through the World of Wikis: An Analysis of Three Wiki Projects.
With the increasing popularity of Web 2.0 tools, it only follows that these technologies are adapted to our foreign language classroom practices. Research shows their numerous advantages as
Wikis and forums for collaborative problem-based activity: A systematic comparison of learners' interactions
TLDR
An experimental study that evaluated differences in students' discourse and actions when they used a wiki with discussion vs. a forum with attached MS Word documents for asynchronous collaboration on two case problems provides insights for instructors who use wikis and forums in their online courses to support collaborative problem-based activity.
Wiki-supported collaborative learning in primary education: How a dialogic space is created for thinking together
TLDR
It is argued that a dialogic approach for examining interaction can be used to help design more effective pedagogic approaches related to the use of wikis in education and to equip learners with the competences they need to participate in the global knowledge-construction era.
Collaborative Writing: Wikis and the Co-Construction of Meaning
TLDR
This chapter focuses, primarily, on wiki usage in educational contexts commentary is also included on wikis in workplace environments and for interest-groups (affinity spaces).
Wikis for group work: Encouraging transparency, benchmarking, and feedback
TLDR
The research aim was to investigate student perceptions of using a wiki and found that peer feedback had improved their work; however, much of the feedback given by peers was too brief to be constructive and provided too late to be useful in guiding their work.
Motivating Wiki-Based Collaborative Learning by Increasing Awareness of Task Conflict: A Design Science Approach
TLDR
This study enriched the knowledge of task conflict, proposed a new way to motivate collaborative learning, and provided a low-cost resolution to manage task conflict.
Using CLIL and Wiki in Collaborative Learning
The paper describes a pedagogical experiment carried out at the Czech Secondary School for EU Administration, Prague. It reports learning outcomes and overall experience in collaborative learning

TLDR
This paper examines the various ways in which students reflect on their very recent experiences in collaborating in an online e-learning environment and makes recommendations for improving the wiki platform in an effort to employ wikis and utilize them to their full and absolute potential.
Wiki research: knowledge advancement and design
TLDR
The knowledge advancement theme explores the educational use of wikis in different institutional settings and the challenges that arise as the open architecture and shared authorship features of wiki software meet practices grounded in concepts of individual learning.
Integrating a wiki into support for group cognition
The Virtual Math Teams (VMT) project is part of an effort to investigate group cognition— the accomplishment of problem-solving and knowledge-building tasks by small groups, particularly in online,
Is there a space for the teacher in a WIKI?
TLDR
This paper asks to what extent collective cognition can be supported and sustained in classroom practices and argues that teachers play a key role in such efforts and that educational wiki designs need to allow such a role in order to support group knowing.
WikiNavMap: a visualisation to supplement team-based wikis
TLDR
The design of WikiNavMap is described, an alternative visual representation for wikis, which provides an overview of the wiki structure, and a preliminary evaluation with a large group wiki, created over a full university semester by a group of ten users is reported.
