The Media/Education/Design wiki is a writing space where students of ETEC510 will engage actively, over the duration of one semester, with the twin goals of learning and communication in a publication medium that affords editing, linking, and dialogue as persistent and critical elements in the production of useful knowledge. The Media/Education/Design wiki will take the form of an online set of entries that follow the standard Wikipedia encyclopedia entry genre. Our primary model for wiki entries will be Wikipedia.

Wikipedia represents an important contemporary example of how a specific medium (Internet) and a particular enviornment (collaborative editing) intersect in a way as to enable the most prolific and significant example, to-date, of public knowledge production that blurs the boundaries between producers and consumers.
