We've found that the most successful assignments come from classes with fewer than 50 students. We have had successful assignments from larger classes, but these almost always included TA-facilitated discussions in smaller sections of the course. If your class has more than 50 students, but you do not have breakout sections or a TA, the Wikipedia assignment may not be a good fit for this particular course.

However, the Wikipedia assignment can make a great optional assignment, extra credit assignment, or Honors distinction. If you're new to teaching with Wikipedia, working with a smaller subset of your students can be a great way to get your feet wet and learn a bit as you go.
