Test Us (Wikispaces needs you)

At Wikispaces, we are constantly improving our site and striving to create a better experience for you. Although we do carefully think through our changes, we don’t always know that they’re effective unless we see them in action. Watching people use our site is essential – it shows us how we can improve.

Currently, we are looking for people to visit our office and help us test our site. Your input is incredibly valuable to our process.

Let us design for you! Each of our testers will get a free year of Super service for a wiki of their choice.

Interested? Email us at help@wikispaces.com. Let us know a little about your experience level with Wikispaces (beginner, intermediate, advanced). You will need to be able to come to our office in San Francisco for about 1 hour during business hours.

    Love this site because I can log on anytime and see how the children are progressing.

    Unfortunately, traveling to San Francisco is not a possibility (unless travel would be taken care of…). I’ve emailed about a suggestion I feel is worthy.

    So in practice this is only for people from the USA, as coming for 1 hour to San Francisco is a bit problematic from the Netherlands?
    I am interested, though, and I am a beginner.

    Are you covering travel expenses?
    I’m in Cornwall, Ontario; but I love the site and I can’t completely ignore a call for help from a “friend”.
    Peace on you.

    I love the way it’s organized…. how can I send a message to each student?

    There are so many possibilities for teachers to use with students and collaborating teachers!

    Thanks everyone for your interest. Currently, we are looking for people in the San Francisco area. If you live in the region or are able to make it over here, we’d love to have you.

    Hi there!

    I’ll love to join you testing team! I’m a professional software tester and cloud computing visionary who uses wikispaces actively as a very useful social media for teaching cloud computing technology at the Institute of Extension Studies of the University of Tampere, in Finland.

    I’m a quite experienced wiki user!

    If you need some helping hand for usability testing on-line, please let me know! I’ll be glad to join you!

    Best regards from Finland

    I teach grade 12 students in a course titled “Individuals and Families in a Diverse Society” and would love to correspond with a class to discuss culture – family life – social issues, etc. compared to southern Ontario. Anyone interested? Thanks email me at gbrusch@msn.com

    I love the wiki and so do my students. I would love to come and be a tester and I will be in San Francisco in July… is that too late? Am I too far? I live a couple states over. I would love to participate.

    I started a site called learninginplace – but must have typed my email address incorrectly. I really want that spot – it there a way I can link back in to get it?

    Hi GBrusch,

    You can send a message to your students by signing into your account, selecting the mail icon on the upper-right hand corner, and selecting the Compose Mail button.

    I am a beginner though I am interested to test wikispaces. Thanks

    Hi!
    I’m not an expert in wikis, I’m just a teacher and I’ve learned a lot during this year using the wiki’s tools and trying to improve it.
    No matter I’m far away and I can’t travel, I’d love to help just as much as you have helped me. (have a list of suggestions… :)

    Cecilia.

    It’d be nice if there was an undo button. If you backspace too far you can’t get back your work.

    Hi Ally,

    We are considering adding an undo feature in the future. In the meantime you can use your browsers undo feature.

    Hi,
    I would be willing to help your site. I am currently a teacher but I was a former consultant who helped businesses redesign business processes with software.

    I can visit your facility in SF. There are a few quirks with your system today that I find problematic such as:

    – embedded Youtube video playlists that work perfectly for up to half a year and then no longer work. I tested this on different CPU’s on different networks.
    – corrupted files (such as Powerpoint files) if you add a new file with the same name.
    – Link button to add hyperlinks frequently does not show highlighted words even after clicking on a highlighted word(s) more than 2 times.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Cheers,

    Though I am a beginner, I would have loved to be part, but distance is a barrier.
