Upcoming Wikis in Education Webinar

On October 16, we will be hosting our first Wikis in Education webinar. Come, ask us questions, and hear from other educators using wikis in their classrooms. We will highlight a Wikispaces feature, see how you can use it in your classroom, and hear from an educator about a recent wiki project.

Drop on in for the following:

  • Get Introduced: We’ll run through the basics of setting up a wiki for your classroom.
  • Notifications and Monitoring: We’ll show you how to use e-mail notifications, RSS feeds, and usage statistics to monitor the work of your students.
  • Clay Burell and the 1001 Flat World Tales Project: Clay will speak about his Flat Classroom writing workshop and some wiki best practices he has learned from it.

Join us for the webinar on October 16 at 5pm PDT. You can register for the event at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/522719970. We look forward to meeting you and hearing your questions, experience, and feedback.

    Thanks for this opportunity and you wikispaces support in general.
    My questions are:

    Can I import powerpoint presentations into our classroom wiki. If so, how?
    Ditto but for podcasts made using Audacity. If so, how?

    To say I was even at beginners level would be a great exaggeration.
