Why a wiki?
We have chosen to put our course content on a wiki for a number of reasons:
The wiki format is ideal for hosting a repository of all your
essential course info in the one spot
. This allows for consistency of experience for you as a student: rather than going to eight different sites throughout your course, you will simply come here.
It allows us to easily embed a variety of media, giving
richer online experience
to suit our varied educational purposes.
It is '
' and reflects contemporary usage of online technologies.
We want you to experience a range of digital tools
throughout the course. In particular, you will be exposed to 'the big three': wikis, blogs, and social networks.
It aligns with our philosophy of '
'. This philosophy is based on the belief that knowledge should be shared, not locked down. Having a space that anyone can view forces us look beyond institutional boundaries and to connect across a variety of contexts.
It allows your unit convenors to
keep track of conversations, issues, problems, and discussions
across the course. We work closely as a team and the wiki helps us easily find out what's happening in each other's units.

Want to have your say on this wiki?
Of course, we'd love you to add your thoughts, problems, comments, etc. to the discussion forums on the UCan Grad Dip wiki, but before contributing you should check out the
service provider information page
and get into the habit of checking out any service's Terms of Service before you contribute.
Before you can leave a message on the forums for the wiki, you will be asked to register an account with Wikispaces. If, however, you do not wish to register an account, then you can sign in using a generic student account we have set up. The details are:
If you use this option, we ask that you at least sign off on your message using your first name, or that you give us some other way of identifying you. If you don't, we will delete your message.
If you have any questions, then why not post a comment -- after checking
Wikispaces Terms of Service
, of course ;) If you have privacy concerns, though, contact a member of the Grad Dip Strike Team.
