This weekend we gave away our 100,000th free K-12 Wikispaces wiki!
So today, we’re celebrating and sharing with you our continued commitment to the educational community.
Great Work So Far
Two and a half years ago we decided that all K-12 teachers should have advertising-free, private, unlimited use wikis for free. No fine print, no usage limits, no catches.
So far, it’s been a great success. We’ve given away over 100,000 free K-12 wikis used by over 535,000 educators and students!
We have worked with hundreds of you every day and heard your stories of engaged students and excited teachers. We have loved supporting such a vibrant community and learning how to build a better service for you. It’s what gets us excited about coming to work every morning. Thank you for making this such a rewarding experience.
A New Commitment
As the 100,000 wiki mark has approached, people have been wondering whether there would be any K-12 wikis left. Well, we know better than to mess with a good thing. So today, we’re announcing our new commitment to K-12 education:
250,000 More K-12 Wikis
Like the first 100,000, all of our K-12 wikis feature all the benefits of our Plus service:
- full privacy, only the people you allow in can see your wiki
- no advertising, your online classroom will remain ad-free
- unlimited use, as many users, pages, edits, and files, as you like, no limits
- a customizable look and feel, so you can make it feel like home
You’re welcome to start as many K-12 wikis as you like. Have 10 classes? Start 10 wikis! Want one for your PTA, your school library, or anything else at your school? Start another one!
The offer is worldwide and is available for any wiki that is used exclusively for K-12 (primary and secondary) education.
Features and Resources for Teachers
We’re doubling our commitment to improve Wikispaces with features specifically designed to help you, the K-12 teacher. Keep an eye out on our blog for upcoming releases.
We’re going to be hosting free live online events to share Wikispaces news, give short tutorials on how best to use Wikispaces in the classroom, hear success stories and best practices from educators like you, answer your questions, and connect people so we can all share and learn from each other. Stay tuned for dates, times, and details.
We know how important examples, articles, tutorials, and getting started material is to teachers with limited time. So we’re collecting and developing these materials to help you be successful in their classrooms quickly and easily.
