Academic Wiki

Academic Wiki could be the name of a new educational wiki. I am working on the project of a wiki especially designed for the education. So, it will include some special features such as the list of contributions done by one student during a period of time. This feature is important to be able to evaluate and to grade the work of each student. Another important feature is the page rating; the difficulty of the topic, the style of the text, the accuracy of the information, the bibliography are evaluated by the instructors and the results are displayed graphical on the page. Finally, a resource wiki is the companion of the Academic Wiki. It provides templates, pictures, drawings, short texts and snippets. Some other important features are a good permissions manager, the possibility to include quiz, flash animation and video.
One particularity of Academic Wiki is the name of the authors and reviewers are always displayed.

You can discover the ideas that will govern this new wiki here:
