Question Detail

Hi, Has anyone tried to create a class wiki or webpage or something like that for students to collaborate and share materials for research and presentations? I have this vision of creating a place online where students can share their research and sources while building the site themselves. Any ideas or recommended sites/apps? Thanks!

      Building and managing a Wikispace (www.wikispaces.com) is one the most commonly used forums that connect students. However, this can be convoluted, time-comsuming, and tedious, but if students are familiar with - and have access to -technology, it can be very useful.

        There is also Edmodo, which is more of a Facebook-style network, but is great for keeping students connected and sharing ideas.

          Thanks, Nicholas.
          I have an Edmodo account, but I was thinking along the lines of a webpage that I outline, and the students build out. Right now, I'm playing with the idea of using Google Sites, but I am a novice with it.
          It's also important that whatever I use works on iPads-- my students use iPads for instruction.

            Have you ever used schoology? It is similar in format to Facebook and very user friendly, has an app (for iPad use) and customizable.
