A site maintained by teachers for teachers
A wiki can be a very helpful tool for the students of your class. Information about the topic at hand can be in-putted on the wiki so as to help the students even more when they are studying. Extra information about the subject can be entered there too so as to increase the students knowledge. Students can also contribute to the wiki by for example creating pages for any thing they may find interesting related to the subject. If a student misses a lesson, they can easily look on the wiki for any new notes about the topic discussed in class.
A project can also be done on a wiki. Students can create a set of pages related with their assigned work. In this way, the work done on this project can be seen by everyone in class whenever they want. Compared to doing the project the showing it to the class in a short presentation, the wiki will allow the students to go over all the parts of the project, rather than hearing about for a brief time from their classmates. Any extra info on the wiki may come in useful when they are studying for their exams and in this way the teacher can be assured that all the students have all the notes required since they are all available online in a single place rather than having physical handouts which the students can lose.
