Wikipedia − Störfaktor oder Impulsgeber für die Lehre?
Abstract Due to their interactive and collaborativeDue to their interactive and collaborative aspects, web 2.0 applications have become a common element of online-based forms of university teaching. University departments, service units and university projects increasingly apply wikis, weblogs or podcasts as information and communication media. Only seldomly have web 2.0 communities actively tried to establish networking structures with higher education institutions, though. The Wikipedia community forms an exception from this. Regardless of significant problems with the use of free contents in the university sector (e.g. problems with student plagiarism in term papers), lecturers increasingly tend to assess Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects on their suitability within new forms of university teaching. This contribution addresses the question how university lecturers at German-language universities overcome widespread academic resentments against Wikipedia and in which way they make use of the online encyclopedia in their teaching practices. encyclopedia in their teaching practices.

She offered Wikipedia related in-class training sessions and encouraged her students to participate in Wikipedia article work according to her rule of thumb: "If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em". thumb: "If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em".
