Problem: Web-based interventions can be useful in promoting health behavior. Developing a web-based intervention requires that a number of experts work together to create the content in an efficient manner. It is unknown whether an online collaborative environment (a Wiki) can be used by an interdisciplinary team of content experts to facilitate the development of content for a web-based intervention aimed to reduce sexually transmitted disease re-infection among young women (InSight). Conceptual Framework: The Representational Approach to Patient Education guided the development of content and the collaborative principles of web-development guided the process of development for the web-based intervention. Purpose: To assess the utility and describe the usability and acceptability of an online collaborative environment (a Wiki) for content development of a web-based intervention. Methods: An interdisciplinary team of seven sexual health experts participated in the content development process. Each expert: 1) was assigned a different theoretically derived content area, 2) worked independently to develop content on the Wiki, and 3) was encouraged to comment on others' work using the Wiki. Upon completion, a process evaluation was conducted. Process indicators were drawn from data retained by the Wiki in addition to usability data. Measures of usability (7 items, 1 = disagree/not recommend, 5 = agree/recommend) and acceptability (10 items, 1 = dissatisfied/not helpful, 5 =satisfied/helpful) were also collected. Analysis/Findings: The content for a web-based intervention was completed within three months. The individual experts made an average of nine revisions per week (range 2 - 12) on their respective content areas. Most content development occurred in the late evening and early morning (e.g. 2am). Mean Wiki usability and acceptability scores were 4.8/5 and 4.5/5 respectively. Interpretation/Relevance: An online collaborative environment (a Wiki) facilitated the development of content for a web-based intervention and was seen as useable and acceptable to the content experts.
