Learning how to do Wikis
Posted by Lisa Hill on October 15, 2008
Today I finally started Megan Poore’s online course about how to do wikis for education purposes. Megan’s wiki Brush Up is hosted by WetPaint and it comprises some very user-friendly modules that show you how to do it.
Today I worked on module one. I explored my reasons for wanting to use wikis at school, and journalled what I already know about it. (It will be interesting to look back at this, in weeks to come).
I also explored some hosts: Wikispaces, WetPaint and PB Wiki, and used a fabulous site called WikiMatrix to compare them. (All you do is select the ones you want to compare and it creates a matrix comparing all the hosts’ features for you – I wish there were something like this to compare health insurance products!) This is a screen dump of the results.
I already have a very rudimentary LisaHillSchoolStuff site with WikiSpaces so I should probably stick with that and fix it up but I am a bit tempted by WetPaint’s jazzy features!
