This paper reports on a project to evaluate students' use of wikis in a distance learning course on information and communication technologies. The students, who were already familiar with discussion forums, were offered the use of wikis for some of the online tutorials which form part of the course. They were then asked for feedback via an online questionnaire. Students' comments show that they valued the chance to use a wiki and could see its benefits for collaboration. However, they also raised concerns related to usability and to issues of editing each other's work.
