MineWiki: the use of Wiki Technology as a Tool in a Senior Mine Design Course
MetadataShow full item record
The paper presents an investigation of wiki technology as a teaching tool in a team mine design engineering course where students were required to develop an article on a selected design topic. The case study presents how the appropriate platform was selected through collaboration between the course instructor and the engineering librarian and the approach used in evaluating learners’ experience using this technology for their first time in an academic course. The paper also reports and discusses some of the challenges that were faced during the course, in addition to the lessons learned to guide the development of the wiki for future years.
