Effects of using SMW based wikis with quizzes for courses with certification exams:

  • Improved success quota - BITPlan participants regularly end up in the yearly toplist
  • more fun for participants - actively working with the wiki is more fun than listening to theory
  • wider coverage of topics - details are linked e.g. Pioneers of SoftwareEngineering
  • personalization of training effort and speed - some people need more preparation than others
