Wikipedia contains informations in a broad manner. Users need to read the entire article to get an idea about the topic. This is good for those who interested in that topic. I have one suggestion. Why can't wiki use a single statement method, which can be used to get a single answer to a topic. I think it is easy for wiki by allowing users to select a topic and add it for single answer ( One sentence). Also provide a link to the full article. Wiki can also provide category view to get interested topic. This may support the student community in a large scale. They will easily get answer and if interested, they can read full article.
