Comment on Blogs vs Wikis by aabele

Well my take is that a WIKI is simply a website structured in a particular way - I personally think having a website, such as those offered by Google, is a better option because it allows for more flexibility in organising you information. Having said that, WIKIs may be more comfortable for those people who are not as tech savvy who benefit from the guidance of a more rigid structure.

What about sites (e.g. Google Sites) versus WIKIs? I'd be really interested to hear people's thoughts on this topic, as I'm trying to evaluate their worth in place of a school VLE.

Ah, have finally taken the time to watch a video on Google Wave! Thanks for sharing that one. I've signed up to it, but that's about as far as I got I think. Would have great application in a classroom - just need to get myself a class to experiment on now! :-)

Hi Andrew, I too find a wiki a useful online facility for "keeping" all the resources, information, links etc. that have been of value to me. I wish I had set mine up earlier in the Masters of ICT in Education course, as there have been some projects and applications that other students created or used in previous units, that would be great to have kept a link to as well as websites and articles of interest. I like the way you have set yours up and although I no longer teach numeracy to adults, I will be exploring some of of the items in your ICT resources section. Thanks for sharing!!!

I like the table it makes it very clear as to the functionalities of each. Will add it to my PLE.

True Tim. It is even possible to insert one in the other using something like a HTML iframe (although these aren’t very search engine friendly). However for some applications you may end up with redundant data where information exists in both the blog and Wiki repository. Also, if you plan to host both a Wordpress blog and a Wiki on a private dedicated webspace, you will need a seperate database for each – keep in mind many budget web hosting plans only provide for one database!

To add to that. You can run both at the same time by embedding a blog into a wiki using an RSS feed.

Technology / VLEs offer some amazing learning possibilities - as an example, take a look at http://professorlaytonds.com/. I strongly believe that when learning is made to be fun it is at its most effective! Further, VLEs need not always be internet based - see the Nintendo DS game example linked in this comment. Has anyone else come across useful learning games?
