On Friday night I had one of my increasingly rare sessions on my iPad. Flicking through Zite I came across this story, Engaging Undergrads with Wikipedia, and decided to tweet it.
The reason this story interested me was because I've tried something similar in the past: Assessment 2.0: Wikipedia writing project. It wasn't a success for me. The students hated it, shopped me to the Student-Staff Committee as "unfair". But the hankering to go back to doing something like this has never gone away. Until I read Marshall Kirkpatrik's post on Saturday. This is all too familiar, and it makes me very sad.
