Is Wikipedia considered an accepted source of information for school research? It might soon be the case, according to a recent CNET story.

"When things have shaken out, it may be a world where free-for-all online information hubs are accepted--or, if proponents of 'collaborative knowledge' have their way, even embraced."

What's more, sites like Quora and Facebook Questions will be tools for  students to help with homework, the story says.
