WikiPage, Wiki, WikiProject
A wiki is an online space where students (or teachers!) can show evidence of learning. It is best used for a project and values collaboration. A wiki utilizes text, links, photo, and video.
A teacher friend of mine has his students create an online textbook using wikispaces.com.
An LMS can also take the form of a class website such as Google Sites or Weebly. We suggest adding Google Classroom to your use of a class website; with this, students have an easy method for turning in work and you have an easy method for passing out digital classroom materials, such as rubrics and templates.
It can also be accomplished through blogging (see below), or a backchannel (see below) such as Today's Meet.
We recommend blogging as a way of journaling about what students are reading and learning.
We suggest using Today's Meet as an easy-to-use backchannel.
