Some other wikis you can try, now that you know the basic functions.



PBWikis


PBwiki is one of the easiest wiki to use. Don't just take our word for it – see what our users say about PBwiki.
Brendy Sherry, Special Education Itinerant Technology Teacher says, "I love PBwiki because it's a safe and easy way for teachers to get students collaborating. The interface it intuitive and easy to use and it leaves most of a teacher's energy to focus on the learning and not the tool."

Wetpaint


Wetpaint sites are "click-and-type" websites that are easy to start and even easier to expand, because you can invite anyone you like to add text, photos, links, and other content to your Wetpaint site. To add or edit content, all you need to do is click the EasyEdit button to activate an editing toolbar similar to what you'd see in programs like Microsoft Word. Then just start typing!
Wetpaint sites can be used for all kinds of things. Here are just a few:

  • Personal Uses - You might want to start a Wetpaint site where you post photos for your family and friends to see and share. This is an easy way to keep people connected to what's happening in your life and helps you avoid sending out tons of email.
  • Reference - Are you an expert on fly fishing or do you have the inside scoop on all the best Hollywood gossip? You could start a Wetpaint site as an online reference for like-minded people. Imagine passionate online discussions about the latest Brangelina gossip or trends in fly-fishing lures with people from around the world.
  • Clubs and Organizations - Are you the one tasked with getting the local PTA group online and up to speed? It's easy to start a site for your group using Wetpaint. And even better -- you can delegate. The Wetpaint platform makes sharing the workload much easier.

Zoho


Zoho claims their Wiki is as easy to use as a word processor, and from the looks of it, they’re right. In case you’re unfamiliar with a Wiki, it’s a website that allows visitors to add, remove, and change the content of the page. The Zoho Wiki will have all standard Wiki features, and is based upon Zoho’s powerful writer that includes spell check, revision history, essentially all of the bells and whistles.If you’re already using one of Zoho’s products, you can use that same Zoho sign-on to begin using Zoho wiki. You’ll be allowed to create three different Wiki’s. Each Wiki is assigned it’s own URL and with that, unlimited pages. Not to mention, you can even embed objects from other services such as a YouTube video, Zoho Show slide show, and the list goes on.

You can also select a group of people that are able to edit. The uses for this are endless, but one idea might be for example, if you’re into gaming. You could create a Wiki for you and your friends, and as you think of strategies or come across tips, everyone could add to the page to create one giant guide. After a while, it could really evolve into something useful. Also, your Wiki pages are search engine friendly, which means that your pages will be indexed.
Other uses that Zoho offers:
  • For collaboration among team members (group project?)
  • Private family site
  • Maintaining “help” documents
  • Sharing your passion and ideas with the world
I’m really impressed with the variety of services that Zoho is developing, not to mention that all of them are FREE. Amazing! Zoho Wiki seems like great addition to the services that they already offer. I’m surprised that Zoho hasn’t been swept up by Google yet!
