Jim Wright, VP of Instruction here at Ohlone College, mentioned Blurb (http://www.blurb.com/) to me recently as a possible tool for faculty who want to publish materials for their courses. I’ve noted it here for future reference.
This list may be added to as additional free wiki websites are discovered.
- PBwiki - “Make a free wiki as easy as a peanut butter sandwich.”
- Wetpaint - “free click-and-type wikis you can share with like-minded people.”
- Wikispaces - “Create simple web pages that groups, friends, and families can edit together.”
What is a wiki?
A wiki is a website that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change available content, typically without the need for registration. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for mass collaborative authoring.
