“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Open, peer-reviewed web journal: First Monday

First Monday is one of the first openly accessible, peer–reviewed journals on the Internet, solely devoted to the Internet. Since its start in May 1996, First Monday has published 1,097 papers in 175 issues, written by 1,399 different authors.

I've registered for their monthly email round-up of articles and it's also worth having a look at the archives - or carrying out a search. I searched on 'wiki' and 'teaching' and got 32 results, some of which look very useful (including 'Student engagement in distance learning environments: A comparison of threaded discussion forums and text-focused Wikis', 'Learning in and with an open wiki project: Wikiversity’s potential in global capacity building' and 'A critical examination of Blackboard’s e-learning environment').
