A Collaborative and Safe Online Environment

Wikis are great for engaging students, involving parents, and sharing resources with colleagues.


Definition, Examples, Brainstorming, Modeling, and Sharing


What's a Wiki?!?

  • Create an easily managed website - all from your internet browser (no software needed),
  • Co-author a classroom, team, committee, or group website,
  • Engage students and staff in collaborative projects,
  • Facilitate an ongoing and dynamic process of organizing and publishing rich content,
  • Track and revert changes made by your students or co-authors, and
  • Quickly edit and manage your wiki!
  • Creating and editing in a wiki is as easy as WYSIWYG (pronounced Wizzee Wig) What You See is What You Get!
Wiki is a Hawaiian term for "quick". Wikis can be created and edited quickly!
