PROWE was a research project that addressed the challenge of supporting part-time distance education tutors' continuing professional development (CPD) needs, including collaboration and resource sharing, through the provision of informal and personal repositories created using wiki and wiki-type environments. Wiki and blogs were used to engage the tutors within the context of two large distance education providers, The Open University (OU) and The University of Leicester (UoL).
