Innovation, in the field of information sharing, has the potential to increase the educational value of material through more convenient and easy to use formats. This project sought to implement an informational database using the Web 2.0 wiki technology that will serve to improve student comprehension of Biology Lab material and procedures. The collected results showed that the wiki generally improved the ability of the students to comprehend and access necessary material. Related areas of study for future project ideas could include activating the option to allow all users the ability to edit pages, creating a peer edited informational database.
