Use of Wikis in Research

I found the material on advantages and disadvantages quite helpful and will use them to further the discussion with my colleagues about use of wikis in the classroom. One of the issues that I continue to discuss with my Dean is the fact that students are not allowed to use wikipedia or other wikis in their research papers. Do you or any of the other participants face this?

--Ellenfeig 21:04, 6 February 2011 (UTC)Ellen Feig Yes Ellenfeig, Where I work (The University of Technology Jamaica) some faculties discourage students from using Wikis and Wikipedia as sources references. I am yet to find out why. But this happens. On the other hand, some of the Faculties are free to or just ignore that instruction and go ahead to use them.
