  3. 3. <ul><li>Wikispaces was setup as an online collaboration tool, which allows multiple users to interact and work together. The Wikispace idea uses a similar user interface as Wikipedia, where users can create a document, edit it, and hold discussions about the documents or any edits that have taken place. You can create a document, or space, for editing, like Wikipedia, you can let anybody view and edit it. You can also choose to restrict the editing process only to people who you already know, by inviting only trusted users and setting up a password . </li></ul>Introduction What is the history and popularity of the application?
  4. 4. Introduction For an extra fee, you can even restrict the viewing of your space.
