SocialText Case Study: Boston College

Cover
Boston College evaluated various options for increasing communication and collaboration in the classroom, including staying with Facebook, but in October 2006 ultimately decided to use the Socialtext hosted service for wikis. With Socialtext, Boston College found the wiki provided a valuable ability to enrich the classroom through up-to-date content and active discussion. The Intro to Management class for example integrates relevant news content, from sites like The Wall Street Journal, Businessweek and The New York Times, using RSS feeds and creates a ‘virtual newstand' to support the in-class activities. In order to publish content to the wiki, the faculty and students are all registered with access to update the wiki using the simple-to-use, web-based interface. Email is also used as a complementary tool for both inputting content into the wiki by emailing directly to the wiki page that needs updating, as well as using email to notify users of any changes to wiki content.
