Abstract: The present study aims to investigate the difference between pre-service teachers who have only traditional writing instruction and those who have online discussion, and online feedbacks in terms of their English Language writing performance in English Language Teaching preparatory school, in a state university in Turkey. The wiki web site was chosen to provide online discussion and feedback platform by the researchers. Inferential statistics and content analysis were used to analyze quantitative and qualitative data.
