Having My Students Write a Textbook

This post, about a college professor who had his students use wiki to create an up-to-date textbook, struck me as a valuable idea and something I could perhaps do--once I learn how to create a wiki myself! Imagine, a resource that students can use to learn, in the language and terms of their peers, difficult concepts. My students often see different qualities than I do when I teach them concepts, and this seems like a good way to harness their knowledge and allow it to grow at the same time.

I think I'll send an email to one of our computer instructors....
