I just started my second semester of graduate school this week, and all of my professor at NYU thus far have brought up using wikis to hand in assignments. Wiki’s are an excellent source for knowledge management in the classroom, especially when you have multiple classes on varying topics. With all the new topics discussed in my classes, it is pretty easy for students to get overloaded with information. I’ve decided to extended my use of wikis to the workplace now, and am in the process of porting over a lot of my code that i reuse like proxies, and that dreaded crossdomain.xml .
I’ve also noticed a lot of professors use of Power Point to to narrate the class discussion. So being that I worked on empressr (a web-based slideshow presentation application), and now use my wiki constantly it only made sense to merge the both. Plus i couldn’t possibly get myself to use some other app asides from the one that I worked on.
