Earlier today someone (sorry, I forgot to note who) posted a link on Twitter to this chart made in Google Documents. I did a little digging and traced it back to Dr. Mark Wagner. Blogs, Wikis, or Docs: Which is right for your lesson? is a great chart outlining the features of each platform, each platform’s drawbacks, and examples of each platform in use.
As always, if you were the person who posted the chart on Twitter, please let me know so that I can give you proper attribution.
Applications for Education
I’m often asked by teachers for my opinion as to whether they should use a blog or wiki for a particular class or project. If you find yourself also answering that type of question, Mark Wagner’s Blogs, Wikis, or Docs chart could help you help others.
