Wikispaces introduced Wikispaces Classroom. Like the standard version of Wikispaces that you may have been using for years, Wikispaces Classroom is for teachers. Next week Wikispaces is offering a free webinar that will provide an overview of how to use Wikispaces Classroom. You can register for that webinar here. At the end of the month Wikispaces will be holding a two hour hands-on webinar for 25 people. You can register for that webinar here.
Wikispaces Classroom simplifies the layout of pages to put only the
tools students need in order to edit a page on display and hides the
tools students don't need. On the management side of things Wikispaces
Classroom is arranged to make it easy for teachers to quickly manage
projects, alter settings, and see reports on students' use of the wiki.
