This paper introduces the research field of Wikipedactics with a focus on the relevance of Wikipedia’s lexicographic aspects for German lessons in higher education: The central issue is to describe one of the most successful digital platforms of the Social Web as a worthwhile teaching and learning subject. It explains Wikipedia’s hypertextual nature, its micro- and macro-structure and details scenarios of use in the classroom and the lecture hall. The paper demonstrates how pupils and students can develop digital skills and information competences when using Wikipedia. Furthermore, the didactic potential of digital tools such as Wikibu and WikiWatchdog enabling the reflected access of Wikipedia users to the onlineencyclopaedic content is evaluated.

Keywords: Wikipedia; encyclopaedia; collaborative writing; didactics; digital lexicography
