Abstract: This tech-savvy generation of students, known as digital natives, desires to learn and to interact utilizing the collaborative technologies that have always been a part of their lives. In the era of Web 2.0, collaborative workspaces have emerged; thus, providing instructors with tools to engage these learners. Wikis are an example of one of these collaborative workspaces.Moving beyond the traditional text-based use of a wiki for collaborative student projects, multimedia can be integrated into the wiki to create an audio-visual text. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how a wiki can be used by students and the instructor to create a audio- visually rich collaborative text.
