  • Every version of every page is saved in the page History (anytime a user clicks Save), so it's easy to track changes and compare page versions. You can easily revert to an "old" page version if information is accidentally lost or changed in an unwanted way. The History stores user information along with page revisions, which allows you to easily track and evaluate user (read: student) contributions. A wiki's "permissions" may be set to Public, Protected or Private.Public - Anyone can view and edit the pages; Protected - Anyone can view the pages, but only approved members may edit pages; Private - Only approved members (who are logged in) can view or edit the pages. A wiki site includes the ability to track page changes via email or an RSS feed. That's how Wikipedia vandalism/errors are corrected so quickly! Most wikis include a Discussion feature for each page, allowing users to leave comments or discuss page contents. Wikis use a very simple coding language called "Wikitext" or "Wiki Markup" to format the text, links and other content on the pages. Most users don't need to know about that, because they can use the Visual Editor - Wikispaces - or the Point and Click mode - PBWiki - (looks like the formatting toolbar in Word) to format their pages.
