Class wiki?

January 14, 2008 am31 8:16 am

If I want to create a wiki for a class (I work in a school within the NYC Department of Education), what wiki do I use? Do I chose? Any experience to share? The first google hit is wikidot. I’m sure that’s how most of my students would choose, but…

Free Wiki?

    I’d use wikispaces. I can’t wait to hear about it.

    You said it! That’s overwhelming. What should I be looking for in making a choice?

    There’s a selection wizard button near the top. I’d start with that.

    I use pbwiki. it’s not fancy but it does everything I need it to. I have no comparison though.

    “Free” does not always mean “cheap” ;-)

    Wikidot is one of the most stable wikis – after my problems with PbWiki it is just fantastic. The interface is not too perfect, but you get a free wiki without any ads. And it looks like they are spending quite a lot of many on backups etc. I only wish they has premium support or so, but the list of features is fine for me.

    Anyway, they have beautifil LaTeX-style equations with references :-D
