wiki as a tool for teaching

by Kwami Ahiabenu,II
I have used wiki in the past as the tool for teaching
basically providing space for my students to do collaborative writing
the key here is to give them a practical experience about how the tool works
the free tool I use is called http://pbwiki.com/ peanut butter, is that not very sweet
this tool enable you to create a wiki within a second, with option for people to contribute to it by providing them with a password
you have the option to upgrade to a premium option if you are ready and willing to pay for it
basically you get a ad free wiki among others
in recent time, pbwiki just added a page for educators http://pbwiki.com/edu.html
using this feature you can create a cool online tool for teaching and learning by getting your syllabus online and empowering students with a tool to collaborate online with their instructors

I am looking forward to make use wiki in my next class
