Who we are

Proposed time frame (0,75 or 1,5 or 3 h)

3 hours


The workshop will focus on facilitating the use of a mediawiki environment as an efficient tool for scientific writing. We will discuss the special problems that arise when a mediawiki is used in this capacity. Matters for special consideration are:

  • wiki learning scenarios in higher education
  • chances and problems of cooperation/collaboration processes in the context of wiki based scientific writing
  • mediawiki as card index box (slip box, zettelkasten)
  • integration of bibliographic tools
  • chances and problems of wiki farms in educational context
  • layout and printing resources

It is possible to focus this workshop more on aspects of knowledge/collaboration as well as on the technical aspects (infrastructure).
