Like most educational techniques there are both pros and cons to using wiki.  It is beneficial becuase it allows students to remain in a comfort zone of thought and delivery with their information, there is no fear of the perception they could get from their peers on their speech and delivery technique. 

The main negative I gathered from learning about wiki's, is that it could hinder the real life communication skills preparation that students get from constant in person, face to face feed back by using in class learning systems.  By never getting over these obstacles, students are able to remain constantly comfortable, and some of the toughest situations in the real world are anything but comfortable.  Another negative for using some wiki's is the possibility of attempting to use it as a possible scholarly source, when it is free to the public and editable by anyone.  Who's to say the information is 100% factual and unbiased?
