This paper proposes a relatively radical hypothesis: Textbooks as educational tools are outdated and in need of reconceptualization. Furthermore, the authors believe that present technology affords us the opportunity to experiment with this reconceptualization in ways that not only facilitate teaching and learning but also redefine the role of the teacher in the classroom. The authors investigate one example of the intersection between technology and pedagogy, describing a college course in which students compose the course text using the wiki platform. This initiative is taking place at Old Dominion University in Norfolk Virginia.
