The main purpose of wikis is to create a space where students can collaborate in order to create a learning community : YOUR CLASS .
They can be used for many purposes:
Class forum or message board
A class online discussion site where classmates can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.
Collaborative Document Editing
Multiple authors contribute to a single document
Students comment on each others’ work (or the tutor comments on student-created work)
A quick way of recording thoughts and links between ideas.
Shared Resource Site
Files or web links are attached to wiki pages, and someone takes responsibility to create a categorisation system.
Each group can create their own project site and use the wiki to keep a complete history of the project, including internal project management and communication.
As with any website, a wiki can be used as a presentation tool.
As all wiki pages can be linked, it is possible to create both linear and non-linear ‘stories’ in a wiki.
As you can see, a wiki can serve a multitude of purposes. Wikis are essentially mere vehicles that allow anybody to create content online. It is up to the creativity of the tutor to design sensible tasks that make wikis meaningful.SO MY PURPOSE IS TO CREATE A WIKI FOR EACH CLASS
