  • 2. What is WIKI?A wiki (the word is Hawaiian for ‘quick’!) is aseries of web pages on the Internet that canbe immediately and easily edited by anyone with a password to your wiki. They are collaborative spaces online where you can share and create information among a number of users.
  • 3. WikiThe content of a wiki depends on you, and what your learners/trainees would like to write in it. A wiki usually can consist of text, and photos, videos and other applications such as a chat room.
  • 4. WikiWikis are conceived as a ‘tool for collaborative writing/editing’, so ideally wiki tasks should include some degree of ‘collaboration’, in pairs, groups, whole class, etc.
  • 5. Ideas for Collaborative Writing Using Wikis • book reports: students write a book reportcollaboratively or individually to a book report wiki. • poetry: students compose poems together. • short stories: students collaboratively write and develop a short story.• letters to the editor: students write letters to the ‘editor’ on a current issue assigned by the teacher. • newspapers, etc.
  • 6. WikiThere are some wikis which do not require a password, and are open to the general public, such aswikipedia ( ). However, the software that we recommend for setting up your wiki (called PBworks formerly known as PBWiki) does require users to have a password to edit the wiki – this will protect your learners’ privacy. You can make your wiki public, but most people keeptheir wikis private, to share only with specific groups of people.

  • 8. Pbworks Getting started: Setting up your wikiThere are several different sites offering free wiki services, but one of the easiestto use is PBworks (please note this software used to be called PBwiki– PB " stoodfor "peanut butter," as in "as easy to create as a peanut butter sandwich." In the spring of 2009 this was changed to PBworks to reflect the workspaces environment this software provides. These wikis are still easy to create, but the focus is also on working more efficiently.) In this tutorial we explore the basic functions of PBworks. Note that we do not cover all the functions, simply those that you need to successfully set up the basics.
