Thanks to an email from Adam Frey of Tangient this week, I learned that WikiSpaces is now providing free, advertising-free wikis for educators!
This is superb. I highly commend WikiSpaces to students and educators, especially for collaborative projects. A couple of weeks ago, educators in Miami, Texas used WikiSpaces to share their work and workshop takeaways.
In group projects with students, trying to figure out who did most of the work and who slacked off is often a problem. By having students use a wiki, everyone (the teacher included) can see precisely what contributions were made by which group members. (And who contributed little or nothing at all.)
To use WikiSpaces, users (including students) must log in and create an account. But, unlike jot.com (which limits you to just five users and five pages for free) an unlimited number of wikipages can be created on WikiSpaces.
Great web 2.0 tool and the price is right!
