I can’t wait to share this with our teachers!
For the many us who are already grateful Wikispaces for Education users, here’s another gift for the new school year. Yesterday, the Wikispaces blog announced the launch of Projects as a better way to work in classroom groups.
This feature is going to make it way easier for us to create collaborative student teams and to oversee their work in their own pages within our wikis.
The post explains:
Whenever you have a particular assignment or activity, you can create a project for it, then define teams of members, each with its own unique pages, files, and permissions. Team content (that is, pages and files) are grouped together, separate from the main area of the wiki. That way, students in teams can do their group work completely independently from other teams.
Projects is available on all education-plan wikis, as well as plus- and super-plan wikis categorized as for education.
Help documentation and step-by-step video instruction will help you get your teams started.
