A new generation of tools supports the integration of Web 2.0 and Semantic Web approaches. Most of these tools are in early development--the collaborative-knowledge-construction field is in its infancy. Few, if any, user studies outline what users expect from such tools and what does or doesn't work. The Collaborative Knowledge Construction Challenge let users try different tools and provide feedback to help us assess the state of the art.
