Please read What is a wiki? and answer the following questions in the google L4C group:

  1. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials?
  2. In your opinion, should course development for education use closed or open authoring approaches? Give reasons for your view?
  3. What mechanisms can be adopted to assure quality of educational content developed in Wiki environments?

I consider the authoring approaches become a resource to make learners become active. It is "learning by doing" in the sense that we can share and observe how we build knowledge. This means goes beyond a classroom and time, it also goes beyond personal contact but it lets to learn from people from vary different backgrounds. A combination of both open and closed approaches provide different kinds of helpful experiences for different kinds of learning styles. Plagiarism can be a problem. Learners should be guided to keep ethical.
