We're not really collaborating if we're not "getting into" each other's writing. If we're not making edits to other people's wiki pages, we're not really using a wiki. This assignment pushes us to do some of this collaboration.

Your Task

  1. Pick 2 Peers' Tips, Tricks, or Tutorials.
    • Find 2 relevant links for each of the peer's tip or tut. A relevant link is a related tip, the same tutorial done by someone else, or something related to the tutorial. Put these links in a "relevant links" section of the wiki pages
    • Write a 1-2 sentence (no more!) assessment of the tutorials or tips you selected. What did you like about the resource? What didn't you like about it?
    • Create a section of each wiki page called "suggestions" and make 2-3 suggestions for revision of the tutorials.
  2. Pick 2 Peers' Software or Interface Review
    • Find 2 reviews of the same software or tool for each peer's review. Put these reviews in a "relevant reviews" section of the peers' wiki pages.
    • In 1 sentence, identify the author of the review and the title of the review
  3. Read the reviews you selected, and your peers' 350-word reviews.
  4. In a new section of each peer's Software Review page called "suggestions" write 3-5 sentences describing the ways the peer can expand and develop his or her review. Be sure to describe how the reviews you found illustrate the suggestions you make.
  5. Don't worry about getting credit. The wiki automatically logs the entries and the authors. SCARY!
