W7: Wikis for Chemical Educators

Martin A. Walker, SUNY Potsdam
Antony J. Williams, Royal Society of Chemistry, US Office
Robert E. Belford, University of Arkansas at Little Rock

This workshop will demonstrate how to use a wiki, going from the basics through to more advanced features such as templates and quizzes. A breakout session will give both beginners and experienced users the chance to explore topics at their own skill level. Different wiki types will be introduced, and instructions given on establishing a wiki in the “cloud”. Attendees will be shown chemistry-related extensions that allow organic structures to be entered as searches or a quiz answers. Some useful chemistry wikis will be examined, both as resources and as course platforms, in order to highlight some of the ways the technology can be used. By the end of the session, attendees should have the capability to design and establish a basic wiki to use in their teaching. This workshop is sponsored by the ACS DivCHED Committee on Computers in Chemical Education and further information can be obtained at; 3-hour session.
