User:MoyNavarro422 - LibraryCloud Wiki

[LibraryCloud Wiki - Recent changes [en]] Kamel Boulos, Cito Maramba and Steve Wheeler write that it is the "openness of wikis that gives rise to the concept of 'Darwikinism', which is a concept that describes the 'socially Darwinian process' that wiki pages are subject to. Basically, because of the openness of wikis and the rapidity with which wiki pages can be edited, the pages undergo a natural selection process like that which nature subjects to living organisms.

Words and what not: Cleaning up the #MediaWiki namespace II

[Words and what not] For many wikis, this indeed contains messages not translated on translatewiki, but in the case of Assamese, a lot of messages are just differently translated on the wikipedia and in the mediawiki localisation. (Of course in such cases it would be best to choose the best one, and then delete the message locally if there are no real customisations.)

But despite teachers' claims that they used wikis to help develop student communication and collaboration skills online, just 1% of wikis were "Collaborative, Multimedia Performances of Understanding." Some 40%, on the other hand, were "failed wikis, trial wikis, or teacher resource-sharing sites without student audience or participation."
