Group Projects in Chemical Engineering Using a Wiki
Group projects are common in undergraduate chemical engineering course. Wikis are a new medium for group projects because they are Webpages that are edited using the same software used to view the Webpage. Advantages include the ability to record changes made by each individual (helpful for grading), ability to continuously monitor progress, and a reduced need for face-to-face meetings for the group members. We also discuss challenges and potential improvements associated with their use.
