Description of the resource Wikis serve to support collaborative writing on the web. The best known example of a wiki is Wikipedia, an open encyclopedia on the web. This paper is meant to explore possible uses of a wiki-environment in legal education. Firstly, it describes the actual use of a closed wiki environment in a class on Cybercrime in the Netherlands. Secondly, the paper explores the possibilities for international collaboration of students without face to face contact. Innovative use of wikis in learning situations demands insights in educational design and best practices of educators. We will show that for students as well as educators the use of a wiki is an easy and effective way of using technology in order to get engaged in new forms of learning. The paper is intended for legal educators who share an interest in innovative approaches to legal education.
