The lastest edition to the wiki family is wikiaudio, which aims be “an easily accessible user created database of information pertaining to the art and science of anything audio or sound related.” Once logged in users can add audio and video as well to their personal pages. The addition of sound and video give the potential to enhance static text based wikipedia entries into something far more interactive which will hopefully be attractive to educators.

At the recent EC SIG meeting in Manchester, Cormac Lawler gave a fascinating talk around the Wikiversity project, and how the whole notion of openness is forcing us to change our notions of personal learning spaces. This latest edition to the wikifamily will surely help to push these boundaries even further.
