The purpose of this study was to investigate whether Web 2.0 technology and especially Wikis could be the appropriate environment for students and teachers to use for educational project management. The conditions under which both teachers and students would be more easily motivated to adopt the use of Wikis were also detected in the case of the Greek educational system. This research aimed at recording limitations or certain suggestions that teachers or students noted and also if there was a way to overcome possible disadvantages. The fact that this study presents specific findings from the combination of interviews of both students and teachers makes it interesting and significant, since it examines the expectations and the possible speculations of both sides.
