A wiki is a website which allows users to add information, as on a forum. Moreover, anyone can edit the content very easily. The most known example is Wikipedia.Since we started to explore and use wikis in our own development/ improvement, we have been intrigued by their potential and, especially, by the possibilities of integrating them in education in general, and in particular in the teaching activity. The paper describes the tasks and topics developed and discussed by the authors on the wiki tic07.wikispaces.com, with the first year students from the University of West, Educational Sciences Department, during the second Semester of the academic year 2006-2007. This didactic experience aimed to practice the English knowledge they had already acquired, thus emphasizing the role of using wiki as a platform for developing a virtual community of practice.
Key words: knowledge improvement, virtual community, wiki-education
