The emergence of Web 2.0 and the popularity of social networking websites is providing a significant impetus for development of new ways of collaborative learning in higher education. In this paper, we describe our experience of using wikis integrated within Blackboard VLE to conduct and assess students’ group projects in two undergraduate and one postgraduate modules The project explores the extent to which wikis can prove a valuable group learning and assessment tool. Overall, student groups find wikis both enjoyable to work with and beneficial for facilitating learning.
