Face of Your Classroom
Creating a Wiki as your Face of the Classroom site
You can create your Face of the Classroom presence by creating a wiki!
Wikis are another option for creating a FREE web presence which like blogs, allows you to post information and your visitors to post comments. One difference is that a Wiki lets you set permissions so that others can also add new content or edit content on the site. Wikis are powered by Wiki software and are often used to create collaborative websites. Please check with your instructor to determine if your class will be using a wiki, and if a particular one is recommended: PBWorks or another wiki service.
PBWorks (previously named PBWiki), has a free Basic Edition wiki resource for educators (although a premium classroom version is available on the same site). Teachers can provide a personal login and password for students to use so that no email accounts are required.
