I have always been fascinated by the open educational resources and collaborative tools. WikiEducator provides an opportunity to all the teachers, learner and other stack holders to collaborate. With the emergence of new technologies and new devices, the concept of Social networking and working together is gaining popularity. There is a need to impart basic training with hands on sessions on WikiEducator to the interested academics.
