Abstract

We describe an approach to analyzing student-created content on wiki systems based on identifying creative linguistic content. We apply this approach to wiki entries written by students in an advanced chemistry course. We illustrate creative linguistic forms, how they change over time, and, based on in-depth student interviews, their value to student producers and consumers of wiki content.
