Federated Wiki is a new open-source technology (invented by the inventor of the original wiki) that provides for fluid reuse and remix of materials. The system allows materials to flow from server to server, accumulating revisions while preserving document history. (More information on the technology and its use in education can be found in the article Federated Education on the Hapgood blog). The technology is particularly well suited to open pedagogies, combining the collaboration and reuse of wiki with the personal ownership of blogs.

This ease of remix and revision creates new patterns of digital participation. To better understand these, we are in the process of building high-level analytics tools that capture such patterns and demonstrate how diverse behaviors contribute to the expansion of knowledge in a federated educational experience. In this session we will present the outcome of that work, as well as show how cooperation analytics can be profitably applied to the management of an open class.
