This project will develop an open-source textbook writing process utilizing Wikis, an open-source information organizational tool, and Blogs, an online journaling tool. Staff will outline a Wiki-textbook, which students will research and write. Each student will focus on a specific aspect of the content (approximately 1000 words long per student) and also edit other sections. Each student will be responsible for tracking his or her participation through posts to a blog. Students will be assessed on completeness and accuracy of their contributions to both the Wikibook and the Blog and the impact of the process on their perceptions.
