Collaborative content management systems are employed to handle large collections of written material concurrently generated by multiple authors. A network-based infrastructure allows members of a group to interactively and simultaneously create, review, and edit product documentation, Web content, or other interrelated documents on-line and in real time. These tools are ideal for undergraduate ethics courses which include a significant critical writing component and where students are expected to formulate conclusions and opinions in written form based upon research, analysis, and a balanced exposure to all aspects of each complex ethical and social issue. The platform also invokes certain ethical considerations, including intellectual property and anonymity, to provide students with a valuable first-hand perspective of these issues as they are being studied.
