Collaboration is extremely different on a wiki than in an actual classroom!  It is challenging enough to teach students how to collaborate and all have a part in activities within the classroom, but online presents even more challenges.  First, I found it very difficult, mostly due to my lack of knowledge, to even set up the wiki properly.  I googled and youtubed it and still had trouble.  Then, because I fell behind in getting it properly set up, I had trouble connecting with others to collaborate with.  This same situation can also occur in the classroom if students are allowed to pick who they are working with, someone can fall behind or get left out.  Online, however, it is easier to document and monitor the participation of all group members. 

 

I guess the difference in cooperation and collaboration would be that cooperation, to me, is working together simultaneously on the same task; whereas, collaboration is working together either synchronously or asynchronously and building off the ideas and thoughts of everyone in the group to accomplish a goal or task.
