This website is database of human diseases. Each semester students choose a few of the listed diseases to create a Wikipedia-like page which includes descriptions, images, and news stories of the disease. Care is made to have students create accessible pages (appropriate use of headers and alt text for images). I’ve pre-loaded the table of content pages with links and the students are filling them in, so in it’s current form there are dead links (just done to stream line students creation of pages to minimize behind the scenes coding, so student’s focus on researching their chosen disease). I’ve been using this for years now and it’s slowly filling up!
