Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

This is my undergraduate final year project, about using wiki in project collaboration, with comparison between wiki and Facebook for the same purpose. There are some undergraduate students involved in the research, whose are using Facebook and wiki for their group project. After the end of all the lectures, they will be asked to fill in the survey to give their opinion, focusing on their opinion regarding to the collaboration experience, as well as offering further possible direction of next-generation wiki. Besides, their activities in the Facebook Group and Wiki will be observed along the courses.

It is an ongoing research project, which is expected to be finished in in late May 2014. According to the university instructions, submission to PACIS and AMCIS is currently under consideration. The detail of the sharing presentation will be confirmed ASAP.

Proposed outline of the presentation:

  1. Project Introduction
  2. Research Methodology
  3. Results and Interpretation
  4. Open discussion

I am confident that this sharing session, and the discussion between all participants can bring all of us into further possible research direction, as well as upgrading the education quality with wiki.
