While tools such as wikis can promote new and valuable collaboration structures, they can also accidentally stimulate behaviors that work against fair participation and educational excellence. In this presentation we will look at practices and tools that avoid these pitfalls, and help instructors get the best results out of social software by discussing the application of these tools in specific teaching scenarios. Source code for the tools presented will be available to all participants.
