Brief Project Description:
This project was developed for the following reasons:
- To get students to examine, explore, and investigate various types of Web 2.0 technologies, as well as discover ways to use those tools to enhance teaching and learning.
- To have students work on a real-world, team-based problem where they need to develop skills of communication and cooperation in order to create and deliver the needed wiki repository outcome.
- To have students gain a more global perspective, by including team members from universities around the world.
- To develop a practical tool that helps anyone at any time and location review, compare, and select effective Web 2.0 tools.

Konichi wa! I'm the Project Manager! I'm a Physics education major here at Purdue. Some of my hobbies are reading, bowling, lock-picking, 2 AM Steak n' Shake visits, juggling, ping pong, and sleeping. I have a hip problem, so I have to walk with a cane, temporarily. Ironically, I'm a huge House fan. This project should be great fun!
