Sample text

A more recent review is provided in [9], with the goal to identify factors that influence collaboration in wikis and actions that need to be taken to increase this collaboration. However, since wikis were not originally conceived as educational tools, many functionalities that could be helpful in the instructional process are not included. More specifically, the need arises for some features to provide support to the instructor in the learner tracking and evaluation process, but also to the student for managing their projects and monitoring their progress.

Tool-Supported Assessment of Wiki-Based Assignments. In: Proc. CSEDU 2012, pp. 58–67 (2012) 9. 2208522 10. : Building a Taxonomy and Nomenclature of Collaborative Writing to Improve Interdisciplinary Research and Practice. Journal of Business Communication 41(1), 66–99 (2004) 11. : Wiki as a Teaching Tool. Interdisciplinary Journal of Knowledge and Learning Objects 3, 57–72 (2007) 12. : Cultural Differences in Collaborative Authoring of Wikipedia. Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication 12, 88–113 (2006) 13.

Therefore in this paper we propose a solution to add these educational support features, as an extension to the popular MediaWiki platform. CoLearn, as it is called, is aimed at increasing the collaboration level between students, investigating also the collaborative versus cooperative learner actions. Its functionalities and pedagogical rationale are presented, together with some technical details. A set of practical guidelines for promoting collaborative learning with wikis is also included. Keywords: educational wiki, collaborative learning, co-writing, MediaWiki extension, learner tracking.
