With a wiki, learners can share information, resources, and experiences, and work together as a group. A wiki is equally valuable to a nursing research team: it can be used to communicate information to team members; foster collaboration among the team; disseminate resources, forms, and other documents for conducting the research; and share experiences with study implementation. Potential uses of a wiki in nursing education and research are discussed in this paper. One team's use of a wiki in a large multisite nursing education study is reported.
