When did you first set up your wiki?

RTEmagicC_Working_with_Wiki_02.bmpI set it up a few years ago and, initially, I tested it out using my students as guinea pigs, posting materials for them to access, but without ‘officially’ presenting it to them. After the first year, having seen how motivated students were with accessing materials online materials, I decided to turn Usoa’s English wiki into Sant Gregori’s English wiki, that is, the school’s English wiki. We officially launched the wiki at the parent-teacher meeting at the outset of the 2009/10 academic year and gave the students the link in class. Since then, the wiki has gone from strength to strength and is used by the entire English Department at school.
