Week 7, Thing #16: Wikis

What a disappointment that the wiki that I’ve been working on to support this class and to help us plan for a possible future class is not useable on the school network. Don’t know why, but all pbwiki pages lose their formatting on our network and make it such a mess to look at that it’s a no-go. Strangely, it seems that if you don’t log in or try to go to another page within a pbwiki, the formatting on the front page is ok. Log in or click on a hyperlink, and all formatting goes wacko and the wheels fall off the cart! How frustrating.

AR and I can’t remember why we decided against wikispaces last summer & I started making the wiki on pbwiki instead. It’s a moot point though because wikispaces is blocked! Shriek!

Discussion tonight centered around our Acceptable Use Policy and exactly what it might be about wikis that is so dangerous that none of them are cleared for use. That’s a powerful tool that is just totally unavailable to us.

Some of us agreed though that wiki use is not as easy to “get” as blogging is–I think we need more opportunity to practice with one another. Maybe soon???
