Top 10 Sites for Creating a Wiki

"A wiki (Listeni /ˈwɪki/ wik-ee) is a website that allows the creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor. (Wikipedia)" Wikis are used in a number of different areas for a number of different reasons, education being one of the most popular. The creation of a wiki not only allows users to engage in 21st Century Technology it also helps increase technology literacy.

Being a user of wikis for a number of years now I decided to create my top 10 favorite sites for creating a wiki.

Top 10 Sites for Creating a Wiki
  1. Wikispaces - One of the most popular wiki creators on the web that is free for education, that can also be made private (ie, password protected).
  2. PBworks - Very similar to Wikispaces and free for a basic account. However, there are paid accounts as well that offers nice features for educators such as more space and privacy controls.
  3. Wetpaint - Wikis in Education by Wetpaint is a great way to create a educational wiki and join a community of over 3000 members.
  4. Zoho Wiki - A very affordable site for creating not only wikis but a complete educational portal package!!
  5. FreedomShare - A very easy to use site that can create a simple wiki that can be shared w/ others or made private. Also, as w/ most wikis the ability to add comments can be turned on or off.
  6. Wikia - A fun site for creating a nice visual wiki.
  7. Wikispot - Not only can you create a free wiki here, Wikispot teaches you how to create a wiki and compares what a good wiki is vs a bad wiki.
  8. Wiki-Site - A free site for creating a wiki built on the same engine of Wikipedia.
  9. Weebly - A popular website creator for education that allows for blogging and a creation of a site that can be used as a wiki.
  10. Google Sites - A nice free way to create a project wiki through the use of awesome Google tools.
