Class Collaboration and Wiki Page
In addition to creating an online learning environment for CJ 480 (Emergency Management: An Introduction to Exercises), a project wiki was created for students enrolled in the course. While all other coursework was posted and completed on the Moodle page, students used the project wiki page to collaborate with their teammates for the final class project. The table-top exercise project was extensive and complex. Recognizing this, a separate environment was created for students to collaborate with each other in a private manner. Security features and password-protected webpages were implemented to deter academic dishonesty and espionage by other class teams. This allows teammates to share their thoughts openly with each other in a secure environment. As a result of the complex development of the site, but easy to use, the wiki page serves as an example of utilizing current and emerging digital tools to provide information to students and support research learning.
