Updates to Wikispaces

Wikispaces has a fresh new look to their site and has added some new features. And they’re still giving away ad-free wikis to educators.


  • Create user accounts on your own: If you have an educator account, you can now enter up to 100 usernames (with or without email addresses) and Wikispaces creates user accounts and passwords for you. Great option for getting your students connected to your wiki in a hurry.
  • All your wikis are easy to get to from the green arrow at the top of every screen. Used to be a bit hidden on the side toolbar.

And though this isn’t new, it’s worth noting that Wikispaces makes it incredibly easy to incorporate content from other web services, including:

  • photos & slideshows
  • audio & video
  • chat sessions
  • RSS feeds
  • maps
  • polls
  • and much more.
