Elaine Tay (Murdoch University) and I have recently published a second article on the use of wikis in higher education for developing better student learning.

We conclude that using wikis for individual writing tasks can, where appropriate active instructions are given to support development of cognitive abilities, lead to improved outcomes for students.
