  7. 7. Some Products Available for FREE (depending on usage): … but free usually comes with limitations or a cost (i.e. ads) WIKIS
  8. 8. <ul><li>Some tips on using Wikis for group projects: </li></ul><ul><li>Use the front page for group notices, your outline, and other housekeeping items. </li></ul><ul><li>Create clear organization – list out the logical sections before you create your folders and pages, add links to the sidebar to reflect these sections </li></ul><ul><li>Use comments instead of edits when warranted, i.e. to comment on a page without changing it </li></ul><ul><li>Monitor your group’s progress with the recent history section </li></ul>PBWorks Tutorial
