There are dozens of free wiki sites; arguably the most popular are www.wikispaces.com
. (The “pb” in PBWorks references “peanut butter” as in, “Easy as making a peanut butter sandwich.”) Some sites include advertising, some limit number of users, some don’t yet accommodate access from mobile phones. Google “free wiki” and look around to see what meets your needs.
Setting Up an Account
Most wiki sites will require you to have a valid email address for setting up an account. Once in, you’ll be walked through the setup process. (Advice: If the product makes setup complicated or confusing, take that as a warning and try another product. You don’t want something that will be hard for your learners, too.)
