A Wiki in a Widget
Just how much typical VLE/CMS/Groupware tools can you actually replace with Widgets? Well I've long disliked the Moodle wiki, so decided to have a go at writing a Wiki Widget. I've embedded it below.
The source package for this widget can be downloaded here. (Change the file extension from .wgt to .zip to open it up and look at the source).
(I wonder how long until it gets spammed?)
If you're in the UK education sector, or develop a platform used in the sector, and would like to get involved or better informed about developing, using or supporting W3C widgets and related technologies like Google Wave, then probably the best place to start is the CETIS Widgets Working Group.
