In Addition to an Online Course

As with the other tools discussed in this book, trainers using a course built largely from asynchronous modules will find that a wiki can provide a collaborative, engaging space to support online instruction. Like blogs, however, wikis are somewhat more limited in their ability to support fostering a “community”; there is less personal space than with, say, Facebook. Unlike blogs, wikis are not generally thought of as an optimum space for hosting discussions. Consider the right tool for the job: If the instructional plan for the online course includes substantial collaborative work, then a wiki might be the right choice, either alone or in addition to another tool.
