    Abstract

    Editing Wikipedia can increase participants' understandings of subjects, while making valuable contributions to the information society. In this study, we designed an online course for undergraduate students that included a Wikipedia editing activity. The result of a content analysis of the term papers revealed that the suggestions made by the e-mentor and the teacher were highly supportive for the students in our case study, and it is important for Japanese students to check Wikipedia in English before making their edits in Japanese.
