Wikipedia is the fifth most used website in the world. Our students are using it. We are using it. But it is more than just a quick source of information. By incorporating Wikipedia assignments into a course, you can harness the free encyclopedia as a tool to help students practice and hone their research and writing skills. At the same time, their work can improve the quality and scope of information available to people around the world.
