AbstractWikis have been increasingly used as a tool in educational contexts. However empirical evidence for their efficacy in supporting student learning is limited especially in the Asian setting. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of wiki in supporting the co-construction of group projects among Hong Kong secondary school students. A mixed-methods design was adopted. Survey results indicated that Google Sites, the wiki used in this study was found to be useful in terms of facilitating learning, motivation, group interaction, technology adoption, and knowledge management. Results of the student interviews generally supported the quantitative findings. However, problems were also identified with insufficient training argued as the most salient one. Implications for integrating wikis into the school curriculum are discussed.
