AbstractWikis have become popular in the educational setting due to their potential to facilitate learning. It has increasingly been used in collaborative writing contexts; although in-depth explorations of the processes and interactions among students using wiki for collaborative writing projects is still lacking. This study aims to investigate how secondary school students in a Hong Kong school used wiki for collaborative writing. Data were obtained from analyzing the revision histories and the contents of the wiki pages. Results indicated that there was a tendency among students to add or edit the page contents rather than delete or organize them. Second, the use of wikis does not automatically guarantee the participation of all students in the writing process. Third, work is unevenly distributed among the group members. Fourth, evidence of collaboration was found in the comments and replies to the comments section. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
